    I signed it but it looks like you've got a long way to go to get a response. I think you need 20,000 signatures.

    You need a petition from change.org and get it on FB. This one is too much trouble.

    I agree. You have to make it to the news media.

    I don't know about that, some of the petitions on the white house's website have got a lot of attention. Most notably the state secession petitions. BTW anyone who signs the petition can link it to FB for others to see and sign.

    What do the writer and signers of this petition expect the White House to do about APRN practice limitations that are established at the state level?

    Federal law trumps state law. The President can't do much by himself but he could be very instrumental in working with congress to pass a national practice rights act. The HHS might also be able to do something, not sure about that.

    It is floating around FB. That is where she started it the other day. Federal does trump state. That is the idea to make every state the same.

    As you realize, there is no federal law regarding nursing licensure and practice, and not likely to be one forthcoming. States have the right to regulate that which is not specifically delegated to the federal government, and regulation of professional practice is not an enumerated power. Interstate commerce, yes, although that does not apply to many areas of nursing practice.

    The only practical way for the federal government to impact overall nursing practice is by reimbursement, and I sincerely doubt we want to go there.

    I find it curious that people believe federal intervention is the answer to professional issues.

    ^Eh...I find that when states realize that no one wants to practice under a restricted license, they will soon loosen the reins. Don't necessarily have to make a federal case out if it, just my opinion...

    Well, states will certainly not be convinced of this by the droves of people in and heading to NP programs ... apparently willing to practice under current licensure conditions.

    ^ARE there droves??? I'm not necessarily sure of that, but if that's the case, then still not worth a federal case, but those "droves" can still leave for another state that is more receptive to NPs autonomy...just my thoughts.
