To all South Georgia UAPRN Members
A hearing on SB 386 to remove the "life threatening situation" restriction to APRN ordering of imaging scans such as MRI's and CT scans will be tomorrow in the morning. Sen. Gregg Goggans is the chair of the subcommittee.. He covers the following counties:
Atkinson, Bacon, Berrien, Clinch, Cook,Echols, Pierce, Ware and Lanier Counties
I am asking that APRN's call the office, identify themselves as APRN's from his district and ask him to support SB 386. His administrative assistant will answer during the day and report the calls to him. Phone messages can be left even after hours that simply say. " I am an Advanced Practice Nurse who lives in your district and I urge you to support SB 386" . E-mails can be that brief as well and put "Please vote yes and support SB 386 in the subject line. This is critical. The Valdosta State and rural south Geotgia APRN communities can have great influence in getting this bill moved on in the process. Please use your contacts to generate as much contact to Senator Ligon as possible between now and tomorrow
Thank you for your participation, your letters are having an impact. Keep it up!
