Prescriptive Practice

In March 2020, Governor Baker, by Executive Order, authorized APRNs with a minimum of two years of supervised prescriptive practice to be granted independent prescriptive authority.  In January 2021, the emergency authorization became permanent when Governor Baker signed into law the Act Promoting a Resilient Health Care System that Puts Patients First.  Click on the icons below for more information.
