ENA Successfully Opposes APRN Proposal in Oregon

July 12, 2021 Advocacy APRN

On June 17, the Oregon State Board of Nursing rejected a proposed rule change that would have created a new emergency nurse practitioner license that limited which nurse practitioners could receive the license. As proposed, it would have disadvantaged highly qualified APRNs from working in emergency departments.

In opposition to this shortsighted limitation, both ENA President Ron Kraus, MSN, RN, EMT, CEN, ACNS-BC, TCRN, and the ENA Oregon State Council, led by Government Affairs Chair Bill Schueler, MSN, RN, CEN, FAEN, submitted letters opposing the proposal.
