Midwives and midwifery friends,
Here are some resources you may need to contact the GA medical composite board. Recently we learned some additional language may be added to “form C”. Below you will the reasons the action is needed on our part, and at the bottom are links to letters you can personalize and send to the Medical Composite Board.

Nursing Colleagues and students:
It has come to our attention that the Composite Medical Board has revised the criteria and items in the nurse protocol agreement for prescriptive authority. These revisions include adding “Form C” (see attached) which now outlines certain procedures which are considered outside the scope of practice for nurse practitioners and APRNs (see highlighted areas on page 2).
So, we need to sound the alarm within our organizations and any other APRNs in Georgia that are within our sphere of influence.
I have attached a copy of the letter GNA sent to the Composite Medical Board for your information. This will have significant impact on our physician colleagues, especially those in the hospital setting s(acute care and critical care) so feel free to forward this to them and they can personalize the APRN letter as well.
Attached you will also find a draft letter for APRNs to personalize (see highlighted areas) and put into an email to send to the Board (contact info below) and you need to include your state senator and state representative on the email.
For those of you who are not APRNs and others in your sphere of influence, I am attaching a “public” letter for them to send as well.
We need to get this done soon so their fax and email boxes are inundated with our letters.
I will keep everyone up to date as I know more… GNA has also reached out to MAG for their help.
