URGENT: We need your help for our SB 1352 Advanced Practice Nurses
Please see the request below from FNPNs Dr. Jean Aertker requesting our help in pushing SB 1352 to be heard. As you can see, the FMA has sent a letter to their members asking them to email or call the committee Senators and ask them to vote no. We need to conteract that and flood them with emails to vote yes!
Please see the list at the bottom of the FMA letter for the Senators you need to contact TODAY. The vote is TOMORROW and we need to have as many emails as possible go out today. Send these to your friends, families and colleagues!
The Senate Health Policy Committee meets Tuesday 3/25 at 2-5 PM to discuss and vote on our Bill SB 1352 by Senator Grimsley –the email item below is a recent anti-NP alert from FMA to physicians. I suggest you all, if u have not so yet, copy and paste this text below and "refine it"/spin it to be in SUPPORT of this NP bill! and add Florida is the last state in the Union to allow this prescriptive authority to better care for all types of patient needs. Would be nice to if your protocol physician sent it along with your note too! Remember to thank Sen Grimsley for putting this bill forward – it a positive step. Jean
Dear Dr. :
Senate Bill 1352, a bill that would give ARNPs the ability to PRESCRIBE NARCOTICS, will be heard THIS TUESDAY, March 25.
Please email each legislator listed below TODAY and tell them to vote NO on this bad bill. Each committee member on the list below needs to hear from you that this bill is bad for Florida's patients.
You can copy and paste this text into your email:
As a Florida physician, I am opposed to Senate Bill 1352. Please vote NO on this bill on Tuesday and protect Florida patients' safety.
