Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners HB 100, SB 25 - 4/26/18
Written by Legislative Consultant, Bruce Hironimus

While multiple groups rally in Harrisburg for public attention on an annual basis, limited media attention was given to the Association of Certified Nurse Practitioners on their annual lobby day. POMA established our public position in a press release to the media in advance of the CRNP press conference. Nonetheless, the CRNP group continues to actively advocate for legislative action on their bills for independent practice rights.

POMA President George Vermeire and President elect Joan Grzybowski have sent a letter of opposition to every member of the state House of Representatives. POMA is calling on all osteopathic physicians to personally contact their state House members in the coming weeks. A call to action was emailed to POMA members. The State House will have extended recess periods allowing this contact to occur at the most effective time while the legislators are in their district offices. Please attend to this call for action, thank you. If you have any questions, please contact Bruce Hironimus at 717-236- 1370 or [email protected]
