Show Your Support for Wisconsin Nurses!

Support the APRN Modernization Act

Most states in the country allow advanced practice nurses (APRNs) to perform to the full extent of their training. Wisconsin is not one of those states! That means health care in Wisconsin is less responsive, less affordable, and less accessible than it should be.

State Sens. Rachael Cabral-Guevara (R-19th) and Patrick Testin (R-24th), along with Rep. Gae Magnafici (R-28th), have re-introduced the APRN Modernization Act -- a bill passed by the state legislature last year but vetoed by Gov. Tony Evers.

This year, the bill's sponsors are seeking our help! Please sign this online petition: Support the APRN Modernization Act, and tell Gov. Evers to

  • align Wisconsin with 27 other states that properly recognize APRNs' scope of practice
  • let the state's nurses know we trust them to provide high-quality care
  • stand with our health care professionals ... and all Wisconsinites who depend on them for responsive, affordable, accessible care!
