(a) certification and, if applicable, the approval of a NPRC by the approval of a NPRC expire at the same time as the nurse`s licence registered by the NRCs in accordance with this directive. 21.29 (with respect to the expiry and renewal of the licence). (1) An official copy of the nurse program and all complementary educational programs, including the diploma, that attest to a concentration in the specialty in which the applicant is applying for certification. Licensing laws define access to health care workers and determine the availability of services in a wide range of markets. In Pennsylvania, nurse practitioners must sign a CPA with two doctors to meet the state`s licensing requirements. The agreement is a written contract outlining the benefits a nurse can provide and the conditions for the physician`s participation in care. A nurse without a CPA cannot practice. As Mr. Gilman pointed out, the CPAs are challenging two principles of competition policy for nurses with respect to professional licensing policy: are the rules harmful? As a result, do the regulations take the proposed risks effectively? In the absence of justified patient safety concerns, the debate about the reasons for CPAs must take into account the needs of patients. In Pennsylvania, two nurses who complete the same accredited postgraduate program and pass the same national certification exam are not allowed to provide patient care services in Pennsylvania, for example if compared to Maryland. Documented improvements in patient outcomes in countries where nurses` professional licenses are less restrictive are likely the result of improved patient access and not variability in provider training. (3) National Certification.
A candidate for the first certification after February 7, 2005 must have the current national certification in the specialty in which the professional nurse is applying for certification. The DOS found that medical assistants who practice under the National Medicines Council do not require such a list of suspensions related to written agreements. This allowance is due to an emergency medical clause, see 49 Pa. Code 18.162, in the Medical Board`s regulations, which allow licensed medical officers to meet a medical need created by a declared state of emergency by providing care that meets applicable standards of care. This clause applies to licensed medical assistants in Pennsylvania and licensed or licensed medical assistants in another state. The National Office of Osteopathic Medicine does not have a similar emergency service clause. (a) A NPRC with an authorized authority may, in collaboration with a physician, prescribe and deliver drugs, as provided for by a settlement cooperation agreement and under the CRNP specialty, and issue written or oral prescriptions for drugs and other medical therapeutic or corrective measures.
