CONversations Series - Healthcare Legislation You Should Care About: Improving Access to Care

October 26, 2021 - October 26, 2021 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us at the next CONversations Series on October 26th at 3:00 p.m. EDT! By the year 2025, it is estimated that the state of Michigan will face a physician shortage of approximately 1,000. As one of 11 states where nurse practitioners are underutilized due to restrictive laws that prohibit them from practicing at their full potential, a change in legislation has been introduced.

Assistant Professor and Interim Director for Faculty Practice Practitioner Ann Sheehan, DNP, CPNP, FAANP, will review the overwhelming data and research that supports acknowledging the scope of practice for nurse practitioners, which will result in improved healthcare delivery for urban and rural communities. Register now!
