California Health and Safety Code, Section 11154(a), states that ”except in the regular practice of his or her profession, no person may knowingly prescribe, administer, dispense or provide a controlled substance to or for persons or animals, or to provide a controlled substance that is not being treated for a pathology or condition… Perhaps you would like to speak to a lawyer for your specific situation if you cover other healthcare providers whose patients need CS II drugs in their absence. CANP offers members three free 15-minute legal consultations per year with a lawyer who is also an authorized NP. People get mad at me because I`m not quite for independent exercise. There is such inequality between schools. In our school, we are ending our master`s program, and I am a bit divided internally. There are some nurses who are willing to be independent, but that is not always the case. For example, I work for an emergency medical group that occupies the emergency room, and we can`t hire PRs because they can`t do the same things as P.A. Dental hygienists registered in an alternative practice (RDHAPs) must have a documented relationship with at least one licensed dentist for transfers, consultations and emergency services. They are allowed to provide all services that do not require direct supervision from a dentist in the personal residences of the original home, care homes, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and other underserved areas. RDHAPs can provide services independently for 18 months, after which the patient must be seen by a dentist or licensed physician. The dentist may issue a two-year prescription authorizing the RDHAP to continue to provide dental hygiene services.
Callus. Bus. & Prof. Code § 1911, Cal. Bus. &Prof. §1922-1931 Doctors come from the faculty of medicine and put themselves on the ground because of the medical model, while nurses expect to be taken care of or coached. My colleagues may not agree with me, but I think it is a security issue. There is a path to practice for doctors, but there are several possibilities for PRs. CANP has a long history of actively participating in the legislative process, informing legislators and policymakers about the role nurses play in California`s health care system, and protecting and expanding NP practice.
