It’s time to help solve Oklahoma’s health crisis and allow nurse practitioners to have full practice authority. 22 states and DC are addressing health care shortages by allowing full practice authority for nurse practitioners. It’s time for Oklahoma to join those ranks. HB 1013 allows nurse practitioners to practice to their full training and education. It expands access to healthcare, especially in our underserved rural areas, and enables older Oklahomans to live independently at home.
HB 1013 was introduced in the House of Representatives where it passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. Unfortunately, the Senate has not allowed the bill to be heard in committee.
It’s time for the bill to be heard and a vote taken. Call 1-844-248-8225 or EMAIL your Senator today and tell him or her to give HB 1013 a hearing and to sign on as a co-author.
