Tapping into the full potential of APRNs
As the situation currently holds, the majority of states have burdensome restrictions on advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), which can lead to delays in patient treatment. APRNs have to face legal hurdles that prevent them from practicing to their full capabilities. How can APRNs fight back when the odds are stacked against them?

Has your organization adopted a new model of care delivery that increases APRNs’ capacity to practice at their full potential? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
