AARP Michigan strongly supports Senate Bill 2, which would allow Advanced Practice Registered Nurses to use the full extent of their training and education to treat patients.
We support this bill because it would increase consumers' access to health care and reduce unnecessary health care costs. Outdated barriers that prohibit APRNs from treating patients in certain circumstances would be removed, improving access to care -- especially in rural and urban underserved areas.
The legislation has passed the Senate and is now being considered by the House Health Policy Committee.
