The national trade organization for companies and healthcare systems that provide consumers with accessible, affordable, quality healthcare in retail-based locations is supporting the SAVE Act (SB 249/HB 277), North Carolina’s bill granting full practice authority to Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs).
“CCA clinics provide much-needed health care to a large number of people, many of whom have no primary care provider. As we have seen in other parts of the country, states that remove burdensome regulations on APRNs have seen an increase in clinics, including in areas that were previously underserved. Passing legislation removing barriers would increase the ability for more clinics to open in North Carolina, impacting both health and economic outcomes in the state.”

This new endorsement makes the Convenient Care Association the 15th organization outside the nursing profession to endorse the SAVE Act. No organizations outside of physicians groups currently oppose the legislation.
We're very excited to announce yet another organization has joined the growing coalition of support for the #SAVEact. Please join us in welcoming the Convenient Care Association!https://t.co/cquXLLX3nL#NCGA #ncpol pic.twitter.com/am4FKqOm4D— NC Nurses Association (@NCNA) April 28, 2021
