Hello All,

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) has been encouraging all state boards to adopt language to re-institute the interstate nursing compact. Language can be found HERE!

AANP and NPARI are NOT in favor of APRN's being included in the interstate contract bills.  I am attaching the amendment to  H7171, a very long bill proposal, that was supposed to be heard in the RI Senate Finance Committee last week but was not.  There is no mention of APRN's in this bill, a fact I confirmed with the director of the BON, Margaret Clifton, yesterday.  I am attaching article 20 of the proposed bill for your review.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
