Protecting Your Scope of Practice
Protecting the scope of practice for nurses, particularly
advanced practice registered nurses, is a major initiative at the American
Nurses Association (ANA) 2016. The ANA is working together with our Constituent
Member (State) Associations to help remove geographic and practice setting
limitations for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs). The ANA is working
state by state to ensure that state laws affecting APRN’s are both fair and
consistent across the country, and that your scope of practice is
not unfairly limited.
Discuss how this initiative and how it will impact your future
as an APRN and your clinical practice in the state in which you live. Include
sources to support your assignment.
