BLIP! A Quick 'Policy Pulse' Update

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 7, 2018

AzNA tracks bills based on our Public Policy Agenda. This agenda focuses on the health of all Arizonans and the professional practice and work environment of our Arizona nurses.


March 6, 2018-

Some of you may have heard about SB1470 sunrise process; health professionals; modifications which makes substantial changes to the sunrise process. These changes are sweeping in their scope. While AzNA supports revisions to the sunrise process, in particular the criteria for review, presumptions and timing, we have several concerns:

  • Some of the provisions lack clarity and may be interpreted to have unintended and unwanted consequences;
  • This does not eliminate the sunrise process but compresses it into the regular legislative session which may make it more burdensome on applicants;
  • One of the provisions may impact the Nursing Compact and potentially put Arizona out of compliance with the Compact.

AzNA Position:Monitor

AzNA will to work with all stakeholders in nursing, the legislature and the community to see if the concerns with the bill can be resolved.
