Connecticut Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Society

Support our bills

Posted over 2 years ago by Monte Wagner

As we discussed at the Legislative Breakfast during our annual conference, please reach out to your state legislators in support of the following bills. You can find your legislators here

House Bill 5163, which amends exisiting statutes to include signature authority for a large number of health care forms. 

Senate Bill 431, which limits prescribing of opioids to family members, BUT includes a section that allows physician assistants to "prescribe, dispense, and administer controlled substances in schedule II, III, IV or V, or may cause the same to be administered by an advanced practice registered nurse, registered nurse, or licensed practical nurse who is acting under a physician's direction." It only requires the deletion of the words advanced practice registered nurse

Any bill in support of medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorder. 

Thank you for your support!
