Advanced Practice Nurses Attempting to Make A Significant Impact in Michigan

Yesterday, Alexandra Wilson Pecci, of HealthLeaders Media, discussed the current push by Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) in Michigan to allow APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and training by supporting a State Senate bill that would define APRNs as, "individual practictioners". Ms. Pecci conducted interviews with MaryLee Pakieser MSN RN BC-FNP, president of the Michigan Council of Nurse Practitioners (MICNP) and Joanne Pohl, PhD, ANP-BC, FAAN, FAANP, Proffessor Emeritus, The University of Michigan School of Nursing and MICNP member, both of whom testified before Michigan's Health Policy Committee to discuss the importance of passing this legislation.
