NACNS Annual Conference 2015

Welcome to NACNS

The National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS), founded in 1995, exists to enhance and promote the unique, high value contribution of the clinical nurse specialist to the health and well-being of individuals, families, groups, and communities, and to promote and advance the practice of nursing.

Members of NACNS benefit from national, regional, and local efforts of the Association to make the contributions of CNSs more visible.

The Federal Trade Commission staff have published:  Policy Perspectives:  Competition and the Regulation of Advanced Practice Nurses

"By limiting the range of services APRNs may provide and the extent to which they can practice independently, such proposals may reduce competition that benefits consumers."  Press release - http://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2014/03/ftc-staff-paper-state-legislators-should-carefully-evaluate
