I want to share the latest update with you to ensure you are well informed and apprised of the efforts from PCNP Leadership, Long & Nyquist, and Ceisler Media regarding our push for full practice authority. There has been a lot of hard work behind the scenes, and it’s been a team effort!

Our Lobbying Team, Amy and Mike Long, held a meeting today with House Speaker Mike Turzai. The meeting was positive, and Speaker Turzai expressed his receptiveness to moving our bill along. He plans to meet with the Pennsylvania Medical Society to share his desire to work through this. After his meeting, he plans to reconnect with our team. At that time, we will know more and will share more.

We are all in agreement that moving this forward represents a major opportunity for patients across Pennsylvania. But the next step is equally big: We must work harder than ever before to make sure lawmakers hear us and hear the loud support for this important reform.

PCNP Leadership will meet in the coming days to discuss our strategy moving forward. We will be in touch shortly to talk about what you should do. The next few months will be the most important yet. We continue to encourage you to reach out to your representative through our toll-free number. Simply dial 1-844-250-5540 and punch in your zip code. This will automatically connect you to your state representative, where you can encourage him/her to support HB 100.

Thank you for advocacy efforts and everything you’ve done to get us here.


Adele Caruso, DNP, CRNP
