Nursing Dean Barbara Redman co-authors letter to the editor in Crain's
June 24, 2013
Barbara Redman, Wayne State University College of Nursing dean, co-wrote a letter to the editor with nursing deans from the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, supporting the passage of Senate Bill 2 (SB 2) currently under review by the Legislature. "SB 2 is similar to laws in 18 states and the District of Columbia that allow certified nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives and certified clinical nurse specialists -- all of whom are registered nurses with at least a master's or doctorate in nursing, are nationally board certified and have undertaken rigorous training -- to provide health services within a limited scope of practice according to their specialty role. As educators, we take pride in preparing undergraduate and graduate nursing students to treat and diagnose patients, while serving as leaders in professional health care."
