The latest draft of the APRN bill is attached.  Comments are due to Pam McCue by Tuesday, Feb. 5.  Please send comments to and to me  The only change that was suggested was that the PMHCNS add "schedule III's" to their RX privileges.  Please pay attention to the expanded role of the CNS, which, if not amended, will include full RX privileges, legend and scheduled substances.  Some discussion occured re the fact that it may be difficult for the students to obtain the appropriate number of supervised clinical hours in prescribing to be prepared to do this. This is NOT to say that there was big opposition to their expanded role.

PLEASE comment
