By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) on May 25 published a proposed rule that would amend its medical regulations to permit full practice authority without the clinical oversight of physicians to all of its advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs).

APRN categories include certified nurse practitioner, certified registered nurse anesthetist, clinical nurse specialist, and certified nurse-midwife.
