actually dictates the credential ARNP in the nurse practice act. I
support the change because more states use the designation APRN and
this would support continuity and better understanding in both the
private and processional sectors. I am ANCC certified, but will
continue to use ARNP, BC until the BON tells me otherwise.

- I ran query for the numbers the last fiscal year KDHE and you know we did not break it down by sex.
Consider we have about 7500 men in prison and around 800 women, I would think the number would be higher for the men. I suppose I can go back run the numbers by sex again.
The numbers of confirm cases is lower than one would think. However, not everyone gets tested that come into the correctional system, so the numbers could be higher. Hep C is 5 times more common than HIV postive inmates here in Kansas.
