I do wonder why membership was not apprized as negotiations were taking place, that psychiatric practitioners and others were being excluded from autonomous practice.
While the Champaign corks were popping for a job well done on HB 607, other members of our association are now beginning to wonder why we not included. I have been a member of the association for many years. I ask the rhetorical question, “why weren’t all NP members informed both before and after passage of the discriminatory aspects of HB 607. No general explanations have yet been provided by leadership to members.
Does FLANP really represent the full composition of its members or does it reflect the narrow interests of primary care practitioners? Had I been informed by leadership that some of us were being thrown under the bus by politicians, I would have done all I could do to see that all were included in this legislation.
Is it possible that we need members of all NP specialties represented
