Action Alert: This is a list of sponsors and authors of HB 1003
HB 1003 passed the full house. They are moving this bill as fast as they can to avoid opposition. This allows ongoing temp licenses for students with an end date of when the Federal government ends the emergency, reduces actual clinic hours for students and replaces with simulation, and makes the process to bring in foreign trained nurses easier than bringing in out of state nurses. It says “shall” issue a license to foreign nurses by endorsement, and current law for out of state nurses says “may” issue a license by endorsement.
Call all of these legislators and tell them to AMEND OUT ALL THE FOREIGN NURSES SECTIONS. We already have a system in place for foreign nurses to come here. Nothing against foreign workers, but we don’t need to make it easier to bring them in to replace unvaccinated Indiana nurses.
