I'm not sure of many differences regarding those in the RN role, I know between KS and MO there are major differences in what APN's can do. They have much more freedom in their practice in KS. That's kind of what I'm looking for, but more so the differences of what RN's can do in certain states and can't do in others. It can be for APN's too, I'm just more interested in the RN role.
The reason is - Recommendation #2 from the IOM is in regards to nursing practicing to the fullest extent of their education and, as in the case of the APN in KS and MO, KS seems to feel they are more capable than MO does.
