This year, the campaign for full practice authority (H.B. 1415/S.B. 681) is being led not just by nursing groups, but by a broad coalition of organizations supporting access to health care. That's why we created The Coalition for Health Care Access (CHCA). This week CHCA has launched its public campaign and website, Put Patients First Texas, and we hope you will share this site with your friends, family, and colleagues!

CHCA is comprised of a growing number of highly diverse organizations representing consumers, business, and a broad range of health care stakeholders. These groups have joined forces to remove unnecessary barriers to care and to allow APRNs to serve their patients more freely. Hopefully together, we will move full practice authority legislation H.B. 1415/S.B. 681 into the public discourse.

Be the first to visit the campaign site, and like our Facebook and Twitter pages. And help us spread the news and word about this site with your social networks so we can create a positive buzz in Austin and across the state!
