State Progress in Removing Barriers to Practice and Care

Since the Campaign began, nine states (South Dakota – 2017, Maryland-2015, Nebraska-2015, Minnesota–2014, Connecticut–2014, Nevada–2013, Rhode Island–2013, North Dakota–2011, and Vermont–2011) have removed statutory barriers that prevented nurse practitioners from providing care to the full extent of their education and training, helping to increase consumers’ access to care. This map shows all 22 states and the District of Columbia where consumers have full access to nurse practitioners, including where progress has been made since the Campaign began.
