The Joint Committee will meet at the Alabama Board of Nursing on January 19, 2021 at 1800. This meeting is open to all Alabama nurses and nurse practitioners. I strongly encourage you to attend this meeting as issues affecting the ability of NPs to practice will be discussed. The more we show our support and engagement the better.

The Board of Medical Examiner (BME) meeting will be held on January 20, 2021. This meeting is proposed to be live-streamed. The thought is that at this meeting there will be a discussion of issues that affect the rules for practice for NPs. I highly encourage you and your collaborating MD to attend this meeting.

UPDATE: You may attend the Public portion of the January 20th Board meeting: live, by calling in, or virtually if you have access to TEAMS. There will be a link on their website the day of the meeting. This link will give you the option to call in or join via TEAMS. The current plan is for this meeting to be held live at 848 Washington Ave., Montgomery, AL 36104.
There is power in numbers! As the only statewide organization for all NPs in Alabama, NPAA continues to advocate for the reduction of barriers to NP practice. We need the help of every NP in the State to speak in one voice.
