|Subject:||Nurse Practitioner Week Resolution|
|In the near future, I will introduce a resolution recognizing November 11-17, 2018, as “Nurse Practitioner Week” in Pennsylvania which is intended to increase public awareness of the important role that nurse practitioners play in providing vital healthcare services.
There are approximately 11,600 nurse practitioners, or advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), who are currently practicing in the Commonwealth and providing primary, acute and specialty care to patients of all ages. Patients have demonstrated great trust in the high-quality care nurse practitioners provide, resulting in more than one billion patient visits annually to nurse practitioners across the country.
Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution and acknowledging the service of Pennsylvania’s nurse practitioners.
