Goal and Impact
State laws and federal policies are among factors that keep nurses from contributing all they can to America’s health needs and wellness. The Campaign for Action is pushing for changes that would allow nurses to practice to the full extent of their education and training. Lifting restrictions means that more Americans will have better access to high-quality, affordable health care when and where they need it, including in rural and other underserved areas of the country.
SNAPSHOT: Top resources.
Since the Campaign began, nine states have increased consumers’ access to care by removing legal barriers that prevented nurse practitioners from providing care to the full extent of their education and training, and many other states have made incremental improvements. In 22 states and the District of Columbia, nurse practitioners are allowed to provide full care.
