As an industry leading advocate and general counsel for the Ohio Association of Advanced Practice Nurses, Brennan, Manna & Diamond attorney, Jeana M. Singleton, has been integral in efforts to bring an outdated regulatory structure into the 21st century by modernizing the law and expanding access to care. Ohio H.B. 177 (currently pending) would retire the requirement that an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) practice under a Standard Care Arrangement with a collaborating physician. As reported by Modern Healthcare, the Federal Trade Commission just published its support for the bill allowing APRNs to treat patients without the regulatorily mandated Standard Care Arrangement.
