Abstracts for 2017 poster presentation due Jan. 30

The Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee (LBORC) and the National Undergraduate Fellows Association (NUFA) are calling for submissions to their annual Research Poster Presentation. Posters will be displayed in the exhibit hall on Thursday, March 23, and Friday, March 24, during the 2017 Convocation at The Broadmoor.

VA Grants Full Practice Rights to APRNs

The US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a final rule this week that will provide certain advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) with full practice authority within VA facilities. The rule pre-empts state scope of practice laws regulating medical care for services provided as part of an individual’s scope of employment within the VA system. The proposed rule would have allowed full independent practice for certified registered nurse anesthetists; they were removed from the final rule and their practice will remain under physician oversight.

Donate to the PAAO Raffle

The Postgraduate American Academy of Osteopathy (PAAO) needs your help! At the AAO's annual Convocation, the PAAO hosts a mixer for residents. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to network with each other and with potential employers. The raffle that is held during the mixer encourages attendance, helps break the ice and generally keeps things hopping.
