Home Health Petition to Sign

Posted almost 6 years ago by Dr. Clelia Lima

Hello everyone,

Please help pass the Home Care Planning Improvement Act of 2011 allowing Nurse Practitioners to write home health care orders.

We need 25,000 signatures on this petition until February 10th. We have already over 23,000 signatures so help us to get about 1,600 signatures needed.

It is astonishing that nurses - that are experts in home care -  are not allowed to practice within the scope and education of the degree and licensure. Even if you are not an NP, please sign this petition as limitations on NPs affect the entire profession.

Please pass this message on to friends and colleagues, both within and outside of our discipline.

Here's the link to the petition: 

You will need to create an account to log in and sign the petition, but it is easy and fast :)

Your help is appreciated.

Best wishes,

Clelia Lima
