FTC Staff Submit Comments to West Virginia Senate to Consider the Competitive Impact of Legislation Affecting Advanced Practice Registered Nurses
Federal Trade Commission staff submitted written comments on the competitive impact of a legislative proposal to modify the supervision requirements imposed on APRNs in West Virginia, permitting some APRNs, under limited conditions, to write prescriptions without a formal agreement with a particular supervising physician.

Over the last three years, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has provided recommendations concerning state scope of practice legislation. Each time the FTC has offered comments, they support APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and training. They recognize that the care provided by APRNs is safe, cost-effective and is essential for access to care.
