Though advanced practice registered nurses, physician assistants, and other health care professionals are more than capable of delivering independent care to patients in need, most states restrict their practice authority without the supervision of a physician.
In Florida, health care workers are working hard to deliver quality and affordable health care to all Floridians, but unnecessary government regulations and red tape are preventing these qualified workers from providing the full amount of services needed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
These restrictions, called “scope-of-practice laws,” hamper our ability to fight the spread of COVID-19.
Scope-of-practice reform will help patients during and after COVID-19 by allowing these advanced health care professionals to deliver independent care they have been trained for.
Sign the letter and urge your lawmakers to support scope of practice reform!
