The anticipated work to coalesce priorities for the Sunset Review of the Colorado Nurse Practice Act is seeking nursing expertise and volunteers. Colorado Nurses Association (CNA) is actively working with > 90 representatives of Statewide nursing associations, the Colorado Professional Nursing Association Coalition (Coalition), to define priorities for consideration regarding the upcoming review of the Nurse Practice Act. Additionally, the CNA Government Affairs & Public Policy Committee is reviewing and prioritizing issues for consideration for Sunset Review. These groups are working side by side with the intention of building a strong, clear, united message to positively impact the Colorado Nurse Practice Act via Sunset Review.
By October 20, 2018, the Coalition and CNA would like to receive a firm recommendation from each issue group as to the validity of pursuing a statutory language change, or not, on specific issues. All volunteer work groups may obtain support by CNA and volunteers of CNA and the Coalition. A link the current Colorado Nurse Practice Act is here (Nurse Practice Act Link).
