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.
