Access to Care in NJ

In 2019 the New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing (NJCCN) completed a Policy Analysis: Improving Access to Care for New Jersey (NJ).  The report supported the need to eliminate barriers for APN practice by removing the joint protocol requirement.  These barriers impact access, cost, and quality of care.  In 2021 we reviewed the current gaps in healthcare for NJ residents as an update to our original report.
