Legislative Season is Upon Us--- BUT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
On Behalf of CAPRN,
A sad and shocking reality, that Senator Renee Unterman shared with the group of Nurses at a GNA bootcamp last weekend is that the Georgia Pest Control Association that represents a profession that exterminates Rats and Cockroaches has more POLITICAL CLOUT at the state Capitol than GEORGIA NURSES! How can this be? There are 130,000 RNs in Georgia, yet beyond numbers is takes a willingness to ADVOCATE and MONEY to have political clout. With 13,000 APRNs in Georgia we should NOT be struggling to raise $24,000 to meet our basic expenses for our lobbying efforts, but we are. CAPRN cannot continue its work to ADVOCATE for APRNs , our industry without both FINANCIAL SUPPORT from APRN organizations and individual APRNs. Please Consider making a Donation TODAY. This is your profession, your livelihood, your state's APRN practice environment we are working to improve.
We have much work ahead, and this is a very busy legislative session with Full Practice Authority Legislation for Rural GA, Preceptor Tax Incentive Legislation that will extend the benefit of a Tax Credit to APRN preceptors for the first time, and Legislation to increase the autonomy and efficiency of the Board of Nursing by moving out from under the Secretary of State's office. Please know who your State Senator and State Representatives are and be willing to contact them and meet with them. Please support CAPRN, many APRNs don't realize that money you spend on a professional membership such as AANP, does not directly support efforts for advocacy within your state. We need your generous Financial Support. There are a few APRNs among us spending countless volunteer hours on this work, most cannot give an enormous amount of time, but you CAN give money that is ESSENTIAL to having political clout. http://caprn.org/support/
