|TAKE ACTION STEPS|
We need your help again!! We need you to sign and send our petition asking the Governor to temporarily suspend APRN protocols during the COVID-19 crisis. We also ask that you share this link on your social media platforms and with colleagues, friends and family to get more signatures.
The Florida Department of Health has established a mechanism for health care workers who are un-employed, furloughed or interested in volunteering to provide healthcare to areas impacted by COVID-19 to register in a resource pool that can be called upon when hospitals or long term care facilities need assistance. To register or for more information, please visit the Florida Department of Health Resource Pool, powered by Aya Healthcare, here.
The the Governor's Office is looking for nurses who might volunteer to help during this crisis if needed. Currently, the need appears to encompass nurses who are able to volunteer to do testing when there is a surge in any geographic location. The Department of Health is ordering equipment and we are told that there would be other experienced healthcare professionals present to train, assist and support you. The current focus areas are Jacksonville, Orlando and Miami. Presently, other areas are under surveillance where there appears to be increased activity. We are looking for anyone who feels they could volunteer. If this is the case, please navigate to this form on the FNA website and fill it in with your information.
Regarding HB 607, we currently do not have any legislative "Take Action Steps" we are asking you to take. We expect there may be some once the new council is formed and the Board of Nursing starts developing the process and requirements for independent practice. We will update this page once we have more information.
A copy of the official registration and financial information may be obtained from the Division of Consumer Services by calling TOLL-FREE 1-800-HELP-FLA or online at www.FloridaConsumerHelp.com. Registration does not imply endorsement, approval, or recomendation by the State. Registration #: CH32573
