From AANP- this is straight from them, please read below

"We urge you to contact your Representative TODAY and ask that they refrain from signing a Dear Colleague letter being circulated by Reps. Michael Grimm (R-NY) and Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) regarding the Veterans Health Administration's (VHA) guidelines to modernize its Nursing Handbook. The VHA has proposed to allow advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to be recognized as Full Practice Providers within the VHA system. Reps. Grimm's and Kirkpatrick's letter opposes this proposal supporting APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and training.
We ask that you support the VHA's efforts and ask your Members of Congress to refrain from signing the Reps. Grimm/Kirkpatrick Dear Colleague letter."
