Support for CNS Change of Scope
 

I totally support the Virginia Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists’ petition to revise regulations related to the registration and practice authority for Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) in the Commonwealth   A CNS has the same amount of education as NPs and should be allowed to practice with full authority of other Advanced Practice Nurses.  I believe this change will grant greater access to health care and totally benefit the Commonwealth and patient access.
