Welcome!

Advanced practice nurses have provided safe and effective care in the United States for over four decades. When the Affordable Care ACT was fully implemented in 2014 over 30 million Americans gained coverage under the law. 22 States plus the D.C. have removed restrictions  for access to APNs. New Jersey APNs currently still have barriers to practice which include requirements for having a joint protocol agreement with a physician, inability to admit patients into hospice or home health and restrictions by insurance companies. There is currently a shortage of physicians and the restriction to APN practice limits patients access to care. Advanced practice nurses should be allowed to practice to their full scope of education and training.

We would like to make the decision making process as easy as possible for you. Here is some information that will provide a broader understanding as to why removing these barriers will disencumber Advanced Practice Nurses to do what they are educated, licensed and and trained to do without changing their scope of practice. In so doing, we immediately supply New Jersey with close to 10,000 additional high quality, cost effective healthcare providers.
