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.
