APRN Full Practice Authority Evidence: How Do We Use This Evidence?

August 5, 2019

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM ET

The case has been made, many times, many ways: Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) provide high-quality care, and consumers benefit from having access to APRNs who can practice without restrictions.

Since 2011, the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action has tracked and collected much of the evidence, showing facts and findings in Campaign webinars such as this one from 2017 and this one from 2016.

But what does it take for the evidence to translate into regulatory change?

That’s the subject we will tackle in this webinar.


Heather Brom, PhD, APRN, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.


Deanna E. Grimes, DrPH, RN, Professor Emerita, Cizik School of Nursing, at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Participants will: 

  • Review past research that demonstrates how APRN care can increase access to high quality, cost-effective care.
  • Describe new research study findings.
  • Identify how evidence is used in messaging to policymakers and the public.
  • Discuss policymakers’ continuing requests for more evidence.
