Abstract

Nurse practitioners in many states continue to struggle to gain prescriptive authority. Independent prescriptive authority holds in a small number of states. In states that grant prescriptive privileges, nurse practitioners battle strict regulations and mandatory supervision by a physician. The article reviews prescriptive authority for practitioners, interpretation of legislation, barriers to prescribing practice, and current trends
