Support of the Regulatory Changes for the APRN status of CNS

Please support the regulatory changes to bring the CNS role in Virginia to equal status of the APRN roles as envisioned in the 2008 mandate. CNSs contribute significantly to the health of Virginians because of the unique education provided to the graduate level studies. Virginians will continue to benefit from the CNSs and should recognize these amazing nurses equal to our partners the NP, CNM, and CRNA.

Please respond positively to the proposed changes.
