The American Nurses Association (ANA) has thrown its support behind a bill that would give advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) greater freedom in home health care.

The "Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2011" was introduced in the House by Reps. Allyson Schwartz (D-PA) and Greg Walden (R-OR). If passed, the legislation would allow APRNs to sign home health plans of care and certify Medicare patients for home health benefits.
