The CRNBC board on Sept. 29 approved a change to the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice relating to prescribing controlled drugs and substances for self-injection by the client. The board approved removing the limit, “Nurse practitioners do not prescribe controlled drugs and substances for self-injection by the client” (p. 26 of Scope of Practice for NPs.)
This change takes effect Nov. 1, 2017. The scope document will be updated accordingly.
