Indiana House Bill 1474 (regarding APRN Full Practice authority) is set to go to committee on Monday February 20, 2017, where proposed amendments may be made. This is the final chance for this bill to make it out of committee and on to the full house chamber.
No public testimony will be held on Monday, however there is still time to contact the committee members TODAY! Since the bill is likely open to compromise type amendments be specific in your message to the committee members. One amendment that might be on the table is a graduated collaborative practice where a novice APRN is required to operate in a collaborative practice for a few years before advancing to independent practice.
