Webinar: Removing Barriers to APRN Practice and Care: The Consumer Perspective

This session focuses on the first recommendation made in the Institute of Medicine report, "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health." Recommendation 1: "Remove scope-of-practice barriers. Advanced practice registered nurses should be able to practice to the full extent of their education and training."

This webinar was co-sponsored with the Center to Champion Nursing at the AARP.

The IOM report offers a series of recommendations to improve health care by advancing nursing as a field. There is a great body of research that shows that when nurses take greater leadership roles in health care, not only does the quality of that care improve, but so do patient outcomes.

"Removing Barriers to APRN Practice and Care: The Consumer Perspective" - Presented by Barbara Safriet, JD, LLM.
