CRNA & NP prescriptive authority updates
Effective July 1, CRNAs gained the authority to prescribe Schedule II-VI drugs and are not required to have a practice agreement. No application is necessary, and CRNAs will not receive a separate Rx Authority designation.
Retroactive to March 4, NPs and CNMs no longer have separate NP and prescriptive authority licenses, and renewal of prescriptive licenses is no longer necessary. However, you must renew your RN license before renewing your NP license. NPs must comply with continued competency requirements for prescriptive authority, which is designated on licenses and can be viewed through License Lookup.
