3. I want to take an opportunity to discuss our new granted privilege to prescribe controlled substance. There are five classes of substance considered under the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 (Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, 2019).This privilege was legally approved in Florida, the last state to grant such a privilege for midlevel practitioners, in 2017( Kellangs & Maye, 2017). Once licensed as Florida Nurse Practitioner (NP) license, you will need 2 hours of controlled substance prescription CEUs and to apply for the DEA license. The application cost $ 731 and it’s valid for three years. NPs are required to have a controlled substance agreement with the supervising physician.

AANPs usually work in clinics, office practices, and managed care organizations. Furthermore, these nurses can deliver care in rural areas, urban community health centers, and college campuses, among other settings. In the United States, state laws define where these nurses can work. Most of the states in the US allow for full practice, meaning NPs are permitted to evaluate patients, diagnose, and interpret diagnostic tests. Some states have reduced or restricted practices where AANPs can engage in just one element of nursing or work under career-long supervision.
