How can Executive Order 57 benefit you?
If you meet the requirements under Executive Order 57, you are able to volunteer without a collaborative agreement and may be able to provide telehealth services through your employer or one of the telehealth companies that serve Virginia. This order, which allows NPs with two or more years of clinical experience to practice without a collaborative agreement during Virginia’s state of emergency, also allows you to take on new roles outside of your current one and to continue practicing if your collaborating physician retires, moves or passes away. The order remains in effect through September 8.
If you’re able to practice autonomously because of this order, please let us know. We’d like to share these examples with the Board of Nursing and our legislators as we continue to promote the safety and value of NP-provided care.
