Will a Supreme Court ruling about teeth whitening send ripples through the health care industry?

Posted over 3 years ago by Nicholas M Perrino

More on the Supreme Court ruling regarding teeth whitening in NC, and potential implications for APRNs in GA.

"Rebecca Wheeler, the GNA past president, suggests the ruling may be a mixed blessing for those in the nursing profession.

'I think the decision is great for APRNs, but I am a little worried about what this means in order to protect our own RN scope of practice from medical technician or nursing assistant roles,' Wheeler says. "I feel like this is a bit of a double-edged sword for nursing.

'I'm not saying it's necessarily a bad thing [referring to the Supreme Court decision]. We probably need to be prepared to 'give a little' if we want APRNs to be able to practice to the full extent of their training in Georgia.'
