22 Access to Care Linda Ault and Cindy Fagan Co-Leads

23  Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training  Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved educational system that promotes academic progress and explore residency programs Access to Care Objectives

24  One of the barriers to APRN practice was not just statutory (code) but that each facility determines what the practice parameters will be for their institution.  This has resulted in many “myths” regarding what the various APRNs are actually licensed to do  We are in the process of publishing a series of “Myth Busters” in VNT to educate nurses regarding what the various APRNs are actually licensed to do Progress

25  Identifying individuals to take the Campaign for Action on the road to educate not only nursing professional groups but also non-nursing groups such as the League for Women Voters, service groups such as Rotary Clubs, legislators, business groups, health care institutions, the Virginia Chamber, and other consumers of health care on how nursing can fill the access to care gap  Call for stories: to demonstrate through real practice stories how APRNs were either able to successfully bridge a gap to care or how the current statutes hindered and negatively impact access to care throughout the state Outreach

26  elimination of “physician supervision”  new language will provide for NPs to work in collaboration and consultation with a physician in a “patient care team” model  the practice agreement describes guidelines for the collaborative and consultative process in the work setting and prescriptive practices  the credentialing process in hospitals and health systems may serve in lieu of a practice agreement  the patient care team physician actively provides management and leadership to patients or groups of patients on the patient care team  the requirement that the physician "regularly practice" at the same location as the NP has been eliminated  collaboration and consultation may be through telemedicine  ratios have been retained but are increased to 6:1 from 4:1 Outcomes: Consensus Bill Salient Features

27  Create a dashboard on the VAC website to track the speakers and organizations that have been addressed. To date we have visited various APRN meetings in Virginia to educate them on the VAC and recruit future speakers.  Secure more support statements for legislative change such as the one obtained by AARP  Long term goal: Implement legislative strategies to impact statutory and regulatory barriers that prevent nurses from practicing to the full extent of their education and training.  This can be done through the development of a white paper in addition to education of professional and consumer groups. Outcomes
