For our members to post and share on Facebook :

Greetings, Facebook family and friends, I have an ask from each and everyone has been touched by the kindness of a Nurse and treated by a Nurse Practitioner. As many of you may know I am a Nurse Practitioner. Senate bill SB 972 needs to be placed on the agenda for its first committee hearing. Senator Gayle Harrell who is the health policy chair is refusing to hear or place the bill for agenda. There is a serious need for access to care for the citizens of the State of Florida. There is an insufficient supply of primary care providers and current state laws limit the capacity of advanced practice nurse practitioners (APRN). Presently, there are over 29,000 APRNs in the State of Florida that can meet the various medical needs.

Please email her office at http://www.flsenate.gov/Senators/s25?pref=full

Fax her office 888-263-7895 and call her office 772-221-4019. 

Share across the State of Florida, let's get the bill on the agenda.
