NCSBN’s APRN Campaign for Consensus: State Progress toward Uniformity
Independent Practice - CNS
Can CNSs practice independently?
Independent - no requirement for a written collaborative agreement, no supervision, no conditions for practice.
Not Independent - a written agreement exists that specifies scope of practice and medical acts allowed with or without a general supervision requirement by a MD, DO, DDS or podiatrist; or direct supervision required in the presence of a licensed, MD, DO, DDS or podiatrist with or without a written practice agreement.
Prescriptive Authority - an APRN is authorized to prescribe pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies beyond the perioperative and periprocedural periods.
