Many thanks for your attendance at meetings and numerous e-mails you have sent.
They have helped us address key concerns regarding amending the Advanced Practice rules to include Clinical Nurse Specialists.
We now believe there is enough agreement to move forward in writing a second draft for your consideration.
Once the 2nd draft is completed, there will be a hearing at the Nursing Commission meeting to receive comment.
. The CNS issue will not be on the September 12th Nursing Commission Meeting Agenda.
Many steps are needed for finalization of the draft before it comes to the Nursing Commission.
The Nursing Commission publishes it's agendas well in advance. They meet the 2nd Friday of every other month.
You automatically receive notice of the agenda being published if you are on the Nursing Commission list serve.
If you are not already on the list serve, you can sign up through Nursing Commission web site.
Check future Nursing Commission agendas to be aware of when it will be considered.
