Texas Has a Healthcare Provider Crisis, APRNs Can Help

Posted: March 8, 2017

For many years, the Texas Nurse Practitioners (TNP) has been highlighting the barriers that prevent nurse practitioners from providing much-needed health care in Texas. The time has come to expand access to health care in the state. Full practice bills HB 1415 and SB 681 are moving through the Texas legislature that would cause the state to do the right thing and put patients first. For that reason, TNP put together this video in which experts in the field, including Sheri Innerarity, RN, PhD, FNP, CNS and associate professor at UT Austin School of Nursing, describe the current situation and urge the Legislature to do the right thing by all Texans.
