APRN Prescriptive Authority Resources
December 5th, 2018

Thanks to the continued work of the CAPNI-led coalition of stakeholders, the push to retire the collaborative practice agreement requirement for APRN prescriptive authority continues to gain momentum. Grassroots advocacy (individual nurses contacting the legislators that represent them) will improve the likelihood that this initiative successfully completes the legislative process and becomes law. You can help by contacting your state legislators to educate them about the issue. Here are some materials to help:

IU Nurse Educator Programs
August 2nd, 2018

With the Indiana General Assembly passing HEA 1002 into law, and that law becoming effective, nurse educators now have an additional pathway to meet qualification requirements for teaching clinicals in certain associate’s degree programs. Specifically, they may be enrolled in a nurse educator certificate program. As was the case before this law passed, they may also be enrolled in a master’s degree program. IU School of Nursing has nurse educator options for both, more information below:

HB 1002 is a large workforce bill that has passed the House in the Indiana General Assembly and is now before the Senate.

Specifically, it would suspend for six years faculty qualification requirements for all registered nursing programs. If this proposal is alarming to you, here is a template you may use as a starting point to reach out to your state senator:
