West Virginia Aprn Collaborative Agreement

The main beneficiaries of this legislation are the 170,000 new Medicaid beneficiaries who, for the first time thanks to the extension of Medicaid, have obtained medical care and have not yet had access to adequate primary care resources. Prior to the adoption of this legislation, APRN practices were concluded because doctors could not sign cooperation agreements. Nurses can now reopen offices in this state where 50 of the 55 counties are considered undeserved health zones. The Future of West Virginia Care is pleased to announce that HB 4334, after nine years of work, passed both the WV House of Delegates (unanimously), the WV Senate (a vote against) and was signed on March 27, 2016 by Governor Tomblin. This law abolishes the restrictive requirement of a cooperation agreement with a physician after three years of APRN practice, expands the form of prescription for a long time and allows APRNs to sign documents that have been previously signed only by doctors. In addition, the old statutes are being retired, which limit the individual practices of certified nurses to the name “Advanced Practice Registered Nurse” (APRN). Medical procedures delegated by the supervisory physician are authorized in the practice agreement and correspond to the training, training and experience of the PA. Medical procedures must comply with West Virginia laws and State Board of Medicine rules. W.

Va. Code 30-3E-12 A practice agreement between a supervisor and a PA is required. The agreement must be approved by the relevant Accreditation Committee and include, among other things, monitoring mechanisms and parameters in which the Palestinian Authority will operate. W. Va. Code 30-3E-10 Since August 2018, 45 NPs in West Virginia have obtained a federal exemption permit to treat opioid addiction with products containing buprenorphine. In accordance with its standardization power and with appropriate training or experience, an NP may, in independent practice, obtain a federal waiver declaration to distribute products containing buprenorphine. An NP who prescribes with a physician in collaborative practice may be able to obtain a federal waiver with appropriate training or experience, and as long as the co-operative physician is certified, trained or licensed to treat and treat patients with an opioid use disorder.
