Senate Bill 2 Passed the Senate!
Here is the Vote Detail - if your Senator voted YES, please be sure to thank them!
2013 Advocacy Day in Lansing
MICNP Legislative Update
SB 2 has passed the Senate!
No time to rest - let's get to work contacting your Representative! We have to make our voices heard in Lansing…the voice needs to be loud and clear that we will accept nothing less than an affirmative vote for SB 2. A YES vote for SB 2 is a YES vote for the citizens of Michigan who want full access to all health care providers.
Next steps - SB2 has now been referred to the House Health Policy Committee, so if your Representative belongs to this committee, please contact them ASAP (click HERE for the committee list).
However, ALL Representatives will need to be contacted and asked for their support of SB 2, so please contact your Representative (click HERE for a template letter). Keep the pressure up. Say YES to SB 2! Click HERE to find your Representative.
Michigan Senate Bill 2 would:
- Define APRNs based on national standards
- Authorize APRNs to practice to the full extent of masters/doctoral education and board certification
- Improve consumer choice and direct access to qualified providers
- Remove unnecessary barriers, which is consistent with Governor Snyder's health care agenda for Michigan.

MICNP supporters – sign our online petition!
Our organization continues to undergo extensive efforts to pass S.B. 2 which would define the scope of practice for nurse practitioners in Michigan. We have created an online petition and we hope that you will sign on! MICNP members & friends - we still encourage you to write letters to your individual state legislators, but our intent is to send this petition and the list of signers to all state legislators and other stakeholders in a show of support by our membership and others who support for passage of this bill.
