Oppose SB 192, LA State Senate

Nurse Practitioners have been an integral part of the healthcare provided to the citizens of Louisiana for many years. SB 192 filed by Senator Erdey removes the authority of the Louisiana State Board of Nursing to regulate nurse practitioners and places the regulation of nurse practitioners under the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners. Nurses are well regulated by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing and nurse practitioners have no wish to be moved under the authority of the Louisiana Board of Medical Examiners. There is no reasonable cause to take this measure and the limitations this bill mandates would cause severe problems for patient access to care in an already stressed healthcare environment.

      I feel it would be a step backwards in allowing NP's to have an independent practice.
