Telehealth is an efficient and effective method of care delivery used by advance practice registered nurses (APRNs) nationally, especially in the wake of the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. With the ever-changing rules and regulations governing telehealth practice, the APRN may struggle to keep abreast. Telehealth is governed by legislation and regulation in addition to telehealth-specific laws.
