It is now within the
scope of NP practice to order Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans as outlined in the revised
Nurses (Registered) and Nurse Practitioner Regulation and the revised
NP Scope of Practice document.
NPs should check with their employers regarding policies around ordering MRIs.
Please note that other revisions in the Regulation, including those related to
Controlled Drugs and Substances (CDS), are not yet in effect. Please review
this announcement for an update on CDS prescribing.
