Subject: VA APRN policy change is finalized

The final Veteran’s Administration APRN policy change was published today.  It grants full practice authority to the CNM, CNS, and CNP but not, at this time, to the CRNA.  This represents several years of effort by our APRN colleagues at the VA.  Please let me know any questions that you have or any further information you may need. 

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday!
