THE OAAPN STATEWIDE CONFERENCE

We are very excited to return to our Downtown Columbus location for the OAAPN Statewide Conference, giving us unlimited growth potential in a diverse and vibrant area. Don’t miss the best APRN continuing education conference in Ohio! All are welcome! Look for registration info in August 2017.
OAAPN IS COMMITTED…
to changing Ohio law to allow APRNs the ability to provide the best possible health care to Ohioans. Full Practice Authority is defined as the “collection of state practice and licensure laws that allow APRNs to evaluate patients, diagnose, order and interpret diagnostic tests, initiate and manage treatments – including prescribe medications – under the exclusive licensure authority of the state board of nursing.”
We have come a long way in the last decade, however Ohio’s APRNs continue to be restricted by outdated state practice regulations. OAAPN is the voice of over 13,000 APRNs in Ohio – we all need to pull together to ensure that APRNs can practice at the highest level of their education, training and certification.
