VA proposal would let nurses take on imaging duties
Please take a moment to read and share!!!
The VA wants to bypass patient safety measures by allowing non-qualified certified nursing professionals to perform medical imaging procedures. Registered radiologic technologists are the only professionals who should perform procedures that use ionizing radiation.
You are able to submit comments to the Federal Register stating your opposition at https://www.federalregister.gov/…/advanced-practice-registe…. The ASRT has also created a message to email our federal lawmakers found in the ASRT Advocacy Action Center at http://cqrcengage.com/asrt/
We need to take action now and let the federal government know we strongly oppose this proposal.
