New Laws Advance Florida and West Virginia APRN Practice

  • Apr 10, 2016

New Florida and West Virginia laws will implement changes that advance the practice of CRNAs and other APRNs. The Florida laws (HB 1241 and HB 423) add controlled substances to APRN prescriptive authority and clarify “ordering” in hospitals and ASCs that is distinct from prescribing.  The West Virginia law (HB 4334) removes some restrictions on APRN prescriptive authority.  For more information  on Florida laws see the FANA website.
