The Senate will be voting on Senate Substitute Amendment 1 to SB 394 tomorrow. The floor session begins at 11:00 am. Please contact your Senator and let them know that you support this bill and that you would like him/her to vote YES. This legislation will create separate licensure for advanced practice registered nurses. Licensure will support the responsibilities and accountabilities of the APRN to the patients they care for. This will also increase patient access to safe, high-quality health care delivered by educated, nationally board-certified advanced practice registered nurses. There are over 50 years of research and studies on the APRN workforce that demonstrate safety, economic value, and meeting health needs through accessibility.
Please ask your Senator to vote yes. Find your state senator here: https://maps.legis.wisconsin.gov/
