Tell your Senator to Vote Yes on SB 570
Oklahoma is facing a healthcare crisis. In every corner of
our state, older residents lack access to the basic health care they need to
live a quality and fulfilling life. For two years we have been fighting for a solution,
allowing Nurse Practitioners to practice to their full ability and education.
Now is the time to act. The language to allow for expanded authority for Nurse Practitioners
is now in SB 570 and we are going to need all the help we can get to make sure
it passes. Please use the link below to email your senator and tell them to
vote yes on SB 570. A yes vote on SB 570 is a yes vote to improve access to
care across the state of Oklahoma, especially in our rural areas.
It is very important that your senator hears from you today!
Special interests are working hard to make sure SB 570 does not pass, but
together we can win. Please take a minute and use the form on this page to email or
call (1-844-248-8225) your senator and tell them to vote yes on SB 570!
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing you today to ask you to vote yes on SB 570, expanded authority for Nurse Practitioners. Oklahoma is facing a healthcare crisis. In every corner of our state, older residents lack access to the basic health care they need to live a quality and fulfilling life. SB 570 will help alleviate the shortage of medical care in Oklahoma, especially in our rural areas. Our family and neighbors want to stay in their homes and their communities for as long as they can, but sometimes are forced to move because of a lack of access to care. Voting yes on SB 570 can go a long ways towards fixing that problem. SB 570 simply allows Nurse Practitioners to do what they are trained to do. Oklahoma is one of only a few states that hasn't expanded practice authority for Nurse Practitioners--now is the time.
Respectfully,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
