I was happy to be a part of the Republican Lincoln/Reagan fundraising dinner this evening. I made sure to take advantage of my husband's connections as the exclusive photographer to say hello to her and other political representatives of the State. One person that I made a real effort to speak to was State Representative Elizabeth Porter.
I spoke with her in detail regarding Nurse Practitioner concerns regarding the current problems with prescription authority and that Florida really needed to join the ranks on the other states that already give us the authority to fully treat our patients with the appropriate medications. I really hope that the politicians are listening to our concerns. Their voters depend on our medical care.
