AANP launches national multi-media campaign to support proposal for direct access to APRNs in VA facilities

Today AANP launched Veterans Deserve Care, a national multi-media campaign to raise the general public's awareness of the need to provide patients in VA facilities with timely health care through direct access to NPs and other APRNs. Lead by AANP and supported by veterans, caregivers and citizens nationwide, the campaign is being publicized through national television and radio spots, digital media, and grassroots efforts in an effort to raise awareness for the unprecedented opportunity to improve health care access for our nation's veterans. VeteransDeserveCare.org is an issue advocacy website that enables supporters to submit comments directly to the VA via the federal register.

The proposed rule is open for public comment through July 25, 2016. For additional information about the campaign and to find how you can make a difference, visit va.aanp.org.
