Health Affairs Representation for Iowa Nurse Practitioners
Iowa Nurse Practitioner Health Affairs Committee (INPHAC)
The committee (formally the Legislative Committee) is comprised of the INPS Chair of INPHAC, INPS president, past or president elect, a member of the Iowa College of Nurse Mid Wives (ICNMW) and the Iowa Association of Nurse Practitioners (IANP)* members. We share the costs and expertise of our lobbyist, Joe Kelly for legislative updates, current bills, legislative connections and registration of our position on bills that affect NPs. The committee meets monthly or more frequently during the legislative session from January to April. This may be face-to-face or through phone conference.
Iowa Alliance of Advance Practice Nurses
This committee is representative of all Iowa nurse practitioner organizations, INPS, IANP, ICNMW, IANA (Iowa Association of Nurse Anesthetists) and the Iowa Nurses Association (INA.). The group meets face-to-face annually to review health policy issues that affect nurse practitioners.
