I just received my September/October copy of NP World News and the KCNPNM white paper, which was written by the KCNPNM legislative task force, is prominently noted in an article by Eileen O'Grady. Her article is entitled "The Voices Grow Louder - NP Scope of Practice Restrictions Will Impede Healthcare Reform". Dr. O'Grady has high praise for the KCNPNM paper and says in part, "The case is impressively made that, based on national quality indicators, Kentuckians need improved access to prenatal care and chronic disease management and restrictive barriers to practice for NPs/CNMs need to be lifted."
