You may have received an email from ACR Board Chair James Brink, MD, FACR, asking you to urge the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to reconsider its proposal to allow advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to order, supervise and interpret imaging exams. I strongly encourage you to do so.
If we want to provide the best care for our patients – including our nation’s veterans – we have to speak up when something is proposed that seriously undermines the quality of imaging care they receive.
At this point, the VA is only proposing that APRNs perform and interpret imaging. There is still time to preserve high-quality imaging care for our veterans.
