CALL TO ACTION, Senate HHS will meet on tomorrow, February 13th, at 1:00pm to consider Senate Bill 351, the APRN full practice authority bill for rural counties of less than 50K in population.

 

Prior to this meeting the Senators on the HHS Committee need to hear from the nursing community in our state via phone calls to their Capitol offices and emails to their senate email address, asking them to support SB 351. You can also call your own personal Senator (which can be found at openstates.org). It will only take about 20 minutes of your time to call all 14 Senators listed.

 

The Message is simple: 

“Please SUPPORT SB 351 that would remove barriers to practice so that rural Georgians can have improved Access to Healthcare. APRNs are a trained ready-to-go workforce of high quality healthcare providers ready to make a difference in the many areas of rural Georgia suffering from severe physician shortages.”
