Tell Legislators to support House Bill 88 - Modernize Nursing Practice Act

AARP is fighting to break down the barriers that prevent nurse practitioners from using all their training and skills to care for patients, especially older people who need to receive care at home to continue living independently—and stay out of costly nursing homes.

28 States have already modernized their health care rules and allow their nurses to practice to full extent of their skills.

Under the Modernize Nursing Practice Act: 

  • North Carolinians will no longer be denied direct access to nurse practitioners who have the training and skills to provide primary care for patients.
  • North Carolinians will have better access to high quality nurse practitioners for primary care.


Note:  For some legislative districts, the districts are broken up within zip codes.  If this is the case, you may need to enter your zip code along with the additional 4 digit code to email your legislator.  For example, 27713-4524.  No worries.  If this is needed, you will receive a message after you hit the submit button and you can then locate this code on your driver's license, your mail or by visiting the "United State Postal Services 4-digit code lookup" webpage here:!input.action.
