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.

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.



SB 570 is an important piece in solving Oklahoma's deepening healthcare crisis, and it is a solution that a vast majority of Oklahomans support. In fact, a recent SoonerPoll showed that 86% of Oklahomans supported allowing expanded authority for Nurse Practitioners. I respectfully request that you vote yes on SB 570 and take a significant step towards improving health outcomes across our state.

Respectfully,
[Your Name]
