Urge your Representative to pass House bill 100

House Bill 100 would give full practice authority to nurse practitioners, allowing them to perform medical tasks such as prescribing medications without the supervision of a physician, ordering further tests, and diagnosing conditions. Nurse practitioners are medical professionals with extensive training, but their ability to practice is limited by Pennsylvania law.

House Bill 100 could change that.

House Bill 100 will enhance health care availability for older Pennsylvanians. As Pennsylvania’s population ages, the need for more medical professionals is growing – but the number of new doctors isn’t keeping up. Nurse practitioners could fill the gap, increasing access to a wide range of health care services for older adults and their caregivers, especially in rural and urban underserved areas where few physicians are available.

Decades of evidence demonstrate that nurse practitioners provide as high quality care as do physicians in primary care services.

Please urge your State Representative to pass House Bill 100 to give full practice authority to nurse practitioners to help Pennsylvanians get the care they need!

Dear  [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I urge you to support House Bill 100 which would give full practice authority to nurse practitioners, allowing trained medical professionals to perform medical tasks such as prescribing medications without the supervision of a physician, and ordering further tests.



Please pass House Bill 100 which gives full practice authority to nurse practitioners, thereby increasing access to health care and removing outdated barriers that prohibit nurse practitioners from providing care to patients to the full extent of their education and training. These barriers often delay care to patients. Care delayed is care denied.

Sincerely,
