Support CNS Regulations

As a CNS for over 13 years, I support the proposed changes to the current Virgina CNS regulations. The CNS is one of 4 recognized Advanced Practice RNs, but in the state of Virginia the CNS practice is limited. The CNS practice needs to be differentiated from that of an RN. Revisions to the current regulations will provide for licensure and full practice authority is needed in Virginia.
