Second Request-Please comment on the 3600 hour requirement for Prescriptive Authority
Fellow APNs, I would like your comments and ideas. We all know that the current law establishing the minimum 3600 hours for prescriptive authority has been a barrier for graduates in Colorado. We, also know that the demand for a preceptorship and mentorship by a physician is difficult to establish. NPATCH will draw up some recommendations for DORA and I think DNA 30 should speak up and provide some recommendations from the people who are practicing APNs.
- What do you think the minimum hours for prescriptive authority should be?
- Should graduates have both preceptors and mentors or just mentors?
- Or if a different type of post graduate training would be defined what would that be?
Please share your ideas here or in an email to me. I would like to have some thoughts to share with NPATCH by the next DNA 30 meeting.
