The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Compact (APRN Compact), a product of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), creates a multistate license for all four types of APRNs that threatens to undermine state scope of practice laws. Specifically, the APRN Compact would supersede state laws that require APRNs to practice under physician supervision, collaboration, or oversight, and potentially grants prescriptive authority to APRNs in states where they who do not currently enjoy that privilege. AAHKS was invited by the AMA to sign on to a letter to NCSBN President Katherine Thomas to reconsider those provisions that supersede state scope of practice laws. Read the letter.
