Certification And Licensure Plan

  • Review practice agreements in the state of Florida.
  • Identify whether your state requires physician collaboration or supervision for nurse practitioners, and if so, what those requirements are.
  • Research the following:
    • How do you get certified and licensed as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) in your state?
    • What is the application process for certification in your state?
    • What is your state’s board of nursing website?
    • How does your state define the scope of practice of a nurse practitioner?
    • What is included in your state practice agreement?
    • How do you get a DEA license?
    • Does your state have a prescription monitoring program (PMP)?
    • How does your state describe a nurse practitioner’s controlled-substance prescriptive authority, and what nurse practitioner drug schedules are nurse practitioners authorized to prescribe?
