MSMS is advocating tirelessly at the Capitol on Senate Bill 2, but senators are telling us that they’re not hearing from individual physicians on the issue. The bill aims to change the Public Health Code to allow a sweeping expansion of scope of practice for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs).
The bill, which recently passed out of committee, moved to the Senate floor, and unless senators hear from more physicians—and other friends of medicine—there’s a good chance they will pass it. Urge your colleagues, spouses, office managers, and others to contact senators, too!
MSMS House Speaker Rose M. Ramirez, MD (pictured), a Kent County family physician and former nurse, represented MSMS's opposition to the bill: "As physicians, our overarching concern is with the well-being of our patients and that the laws and regulations of Michigan lead to health care that is safe, efficient, and of the highest quality."
