Advanced Practice Nurses and Prescriptive Authority
Though the roles of Clinical Nurse Specialist, Nurse Educator and Nurse Administrator are all vital to the health care industry, they are not allowed prescriptive authority per se. However, the role of Nurse Practitioner is intimately connected with the ability to prescribe medications. The developmental history of the Nurse Practitioner shows a determined movement from a single fledgling program in the 1960’s toward eventually complete autonomy and financial rewards, despite resistance from other members of the medical community and the Nursing profession itself. Facing a patchwork of varying, sometimes inconsistent and restrictive regulations on the state and federal levels, Nurse Practitioners face serious issues and challenges in several arenas, including but not limited to ethical, legal, political and educational concerns, that hamper their abilities to provide the highest standard of patient care. However, Nurse Practitioners are now using the clout endowed by sheer numbers to promote greater autonomy, more equitable financial rewards and high standards of care.
The “Nurse Practitioner” is a relatively new American medical role. First conceived in the 1960’s as a restricted diagnostic/nursing hybrid, the discipline of Nurse Practitioner has developed in a patchwork of varying state and federal regulations and legislation. The modern Nurse Practitioner is at once empowered and hampered by state and federal authorities across several vital areas. Fortunately, the sheer number of American Nurse Practitioners gives them the political clout to significantly influence their roles toward eventual autonomy and financial equity.
Changes in Society and Health Care Regarding Prescriptive Authority of Advanced Practice Nurses
Though non-physicians have filled medical care gaps created by the lack of physicians for hundreds of years, the formal category of “Nurse Practitioner” is relatively young. During the 1960’s Dr. Henry Silver and a nurse educator named Loretta Ford created an educational program at the University of Colorado to prepare nurses for responding to the lack of physicians in rural areas of Colorado. Taught at the Master’s level, this program required a nursing license and patient care experience for admission, and was innovative in that it combined traditional nursing care with the ability to diagnose. The first “Nurse Practitioners’ began practicing in the late 1960’s. Though the Nursing professional was initially skeptical of this “Physician extender” that seemed to militate against its patient care-focus, as the profession became more defined and as educational programs developed and spread across the county, the Nursing profession eventually welcomed this new role.
While Nurse Practitioners enjoyed some autonomy and greater privileges in their roles, the issue of prescriptive authority proved to be a separate battle that took years and even decades to win. By the mid-1970’s state legislatures began considering the possibility of granting prescriptive authority to Nurse Practitioners. Some states eventually granted prescriptive authority through their regulatory bodies while other states eventually granted that authority through their legislative bodies. By 2006, all 50 states and the District of Columbia had granted at least some degree of prescriptive rights to Nurse Practitioners (Buppert, Nurse practitioner’s business practice and legal guide, Fourth Edition, 2012, p. 7).
As of the year 2000, approximately 95,000 Nurse Practitioners practiced in every State and the District of Columbia, with varying requirements and authority granted by each State. According to the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis, the 95,000 Nurse Practitioners working in 2000 represented an increase of more than 240% in the number of American Nurse Practitioners since 1992. By 2011, the number of Nurse Practitioners in the United States was more than 135,000 (Crane, 2011) and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners estimates that 656 million prescriptions per year are written by American Nurse Practitioners (Brown, 2010, p. x). Today, Nurse Practitioners fill numerous roles in nearly every health care situation, fulfilling the Nursing profession’s primary focus on the patient’s total well-being while exercising the authority to prescribe medication and “order, perform, and interpret” some laboratory tests. In fulfilling these roles, a recent multidisciplinary health care study found that “Nurse Practitioners demonstrate a high level both collaboration and high levels of autonomy” (Klein, 2011, p. 80). Nurse Practitioners are able to practice autonomously in many states, though a number of Nurse Practitioners are supervised by physicians in some capacity (National Center for Health Workforce Analysis – Bureau of Health Professions – Health Resources and Services Administration, 2010, pp. 7-9).
The Family Nurse Practitioner specialty is more flexible than the areas of those specializing in neonatal or acute care, for example. Consequently, Family Nurse Practitioners can practice in a number of health care specialties and usually practice in such areas as: Family Medicine; Urgent Care; Internal Medicine; Pediatrics; Women’s Health; Cardiology; Gastroenterology and Urology. Admittedly, the Family Nurse Practitioner is limited when it comes to Acute Care or Neonatal complication, for example; however, the route of Family Nurse Practitioner is often chosen because it allows the Nurse Practitioner to practice in many areas (Advanced Practice Recruiters, 2012). Most closely resembling the “general practitioner” of earlier medicine, Family Nurse Practitioners are in ever greater demand due to the lack Family Practice Physicians, particularly in rural and inner-city areas, the increasing number of Baby Boomer patients, and the demands created by uninsured patients who are accessing the health care system through government programs (Advanced Practice Recruiters, 2012). Family Nurse Practitioners are normally found practicing in clinics that provide family medicine to patients of any age and capable of providing health care over the patients’ lifetimes. Depending on the patient population of their geographic and clinical areas, Family Nurse Practitioners may concentrate on any age group, usually from toddlers through aged adults. Their prescriptive authority is governed by state legislation and at this time, all 50 states allow Family Nurse Practitioners to prescribe medications (Advanced Practice Recruiters, 2012).
Issues of Prescriptive Authority Affecting Advanced Nursing Roles:
Issues and Challenges:
Today’s Nurse Practitioner faces significant legal, ethical, financial, role acquisition and political issues, particularly regarding prescriptive authority. Perhaps the most daunting concern involves the legal regulation of Nurse Practitioners. Regulations governing Nurse Practitioners, including their prescriptive authority, still vary from state to state: “For NPs in 2 states, though, authority to prescribe any schedule of controlled substances is not allowed. Two other states are waiting for final rulemaking before their legislative acts enabling NPs to prescribe controlled substances become effective. For NPs in several states, a variety of restrictions on controlled substances prescribing remain” (Byrne, 2011). Nevertheless, there are some general rules that apply to the prescriptive authority of Nurse Practitioners in every state and the District of Columbia:
” â€¢ Any prescription written for a controlled substance will include the NP prescriber’s federal U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number, denoting the NP’s independent or plenary authority to prescribe in accordance with state scope of practice.
â€¢ It is assumed that every prescription will include the standard information expected from all authorized prescribers, such as the prescriber’s name, title, license/specialty, ID/Rx number as applicable, practice address, and phone number; the patient’s name; the date of the prescription; and the name of the drug, strength, dosage, route, specific directions, quantity, number of refills, and instructions regarding generic substitution.
â€¢ The cosignature of a collaborating physician is not required in any state on any prescription that an NP is authorized to write” (Byrne, 2011).
Finally, Nurse Practitioners in Federal facilities, such as Veterans Administration Hospitals, are governed by a separate set of regulations. As an advisory ruling from the State of Massachusetts shows, Federal regulations borrow some aspects of state legislation but are not identical to it (Health and Human Services, 2010).
The modern Nurse Practitioner faces serious ethical concerns, particularly due to the legal restrictions on his or her practice. The limitations placed on Nurse Practitioners pose an ethical problem in providing the highest quality of care for patients. Nurse Practitioner Carla Mills states, “[E]very day I am forced to negotiate around practice restrictions that interfere with my ability to deliver optimal care to my patients” (Mills, 2009). In addition, 46% of Nurse Practitioners reportedly delivered care that they deemed “sub-par” due to insufficient prescriptive authority (Peterson & Simpson, 2010, p. 7). In sum, the very regulations that empower Nurse Practitioners also restrict their abilities so severely that they create serious ethical concerns about the quality of patient care.
Nurse Practitioners are also faced with significant role acquisition and intimately-related political issues, particularly regarding prescriptive authority. As might be expected from the varying state regulations regarding Nurse Practitioners, role acquisition also varies from state to state. Furthermore, some state regulations make the Nurse Practitioner’s full acquisition of her role as health care provider next-to-impossible in some circumstances. For example, in Texas, Nurse Practitioners must be supervised by physicians in order to practice; however, The Texas Tribune ran a 2010 article about Prudie Orr, a psychiatric Nurse Practitioner who could not open a practice in Georgetown, Texas because she could not find a doctor who would allow it (Ramshaw, 2010). As Orr stated, she essentially must continue begging in the hope that a single local doctor will allow her to petition, and pay the doctor to “grant her ‘prescriptive authority,’ essentially keeping an eye on the nurse practitioner’s work — and in some cases, being held liable for it” (Ramshaw, 2010). Political issues involving physicians, in general, also pose significant issues for the modern Nurse Practitioner. The dramatic increase in Nurse Practitioners has given rise to questions about their impact on the incomes of other health providers, including physicians. Researchers have found that in areas with greater numbers of nurse practitioners, nurse practitioner incomes are higher while the incomes of physicians in the same geographic areas are decreased (Perry, 2009, p. 509). Perhaps partially due to the economic impact of Nurse Practitioners on physicians, Nurse Practitioners face physician resistance to their quest for full practice and prescriptive authority. As Carla Mills points out, physicians “express concerns that unsupervised NPs will misdiagnose, miss less obvious and potentially life-threatening problems, and make prescribing errors. They state that NPs lack the skill to manage complex patients with multisystem diseases. They have presumed that NPs will order more tests than necessary and be quicker to send patients to the hospital, thus driving up health care costs” (Mills, 2009). Though Mills points to the fact that none of those concerns has proven to be true in the 40-year history of Nurse Practitioners, the resistance by physicians and their associations remains a major obstacle for Nurse Practitioners.
Nurse Practitioners face restrictive limitations on authority and inequitable payment/reimbursement policies. As noted in The future of nursing: Leading change, advancing health | Appendix H: Federal options for maximizing the value of advanced practice nurses in providing quality, cost-effective health care, Nurse Practitioners’ efforts to provide the highest level of care are currently frustrated by two factors: “state-based limitations on the licensed scopes of practice which prevent them from practicing to the full extent of their abilities, and & #8230;payment or reimbursement policies (both governmental and private) that either render them ineligible for payment, or preclude their being paid directly for their services, or pay them at a sharply discounted rate for rendering the same services as physicians” (Safriet, 2011, p. 446). In order to fully realize their potential, Nurse Practitioners must deal with and ultimately work to change these restrictive laws and unfair payment policies.
Medical insurance is also an issue and challenge for the modern Nurse Practitioner. As Nurse Practitioners’ authority increases, so do their insurance concerns. Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes act differently in different states. Insurance companies will, for example, contract with a Nurse Practitioner in one state but not in another. Carolyn Buppert, a Nurse Practitioner and an attorney specializing in representing Nurse Practitioners, states that the differences may be due to several reasons. An insurance company’s refusal to contract with a Nurse Practitioner may depend on the amount of autonomy given to a Nurse Practitioner by her state: the less autonomy given, the less likely an insurance company is to contract directly with the Nurse Practitioner (Buppert, Why do insurers refuse to contract with nurse practitioners?, 2012). In addition, California is the only state that separates “medical corporations,” requiring that a physician own a percentage of the corporation, from “nursing corporations” and some insurance companies may have a policy whereby they contract only with “medical corporations” (Buppert, Nurse practitioner’s business practice and legal guide, Fourth Edition, 2012). This illustrates the difficulties that some Nurse Practitioners may have in that, lacking a contract with an insurance company, there will be instances in the patient is not treated or the Nurse Practitioner is not paid.
Another challenge for the modern Nurse Practitioner, which is also related to insurance, is the greater exposure to liability in the form of a malpractice suit. With greater authority and exposure comes greater risk and the Nurse Practitioner is not immune to the possibility of a medical malpractice suit. Consequently, Nurse Practitioners must obtain medical malpractice insurance. In addition, if a Nurse Practitioner is sued for medical malpractice, even if the Nurse Practitioner wins the suit, “An NP who is sued may feel like leaving the profession, may doubt his or her ability to make decisions, may resort to over-referring and seeking unnecessary consultation, may find that his or her insurance rates are increased, may miss days of work while testifying, may have to pay some legal expenses, and may have to mount a defense before the state licensing board” (Buppert, Nurse practitioner’s business practice and legal guide, Fourth Edition, 2012, p. 256). Consequently, the impact on the Nurse Practitioner and his or her ability to provide a high level of care is obvious.
Responses by Nurse Practitioners
In response to current legal, ethical, role acquisition and political issues, Nurse Practitioners are seeking ways to expand Nurse Practitioners’ authority, prescriptive and otherwise, on Federal and State levels. On the Federal level, Nurse Practitioners note that the profession has been “stymiedâ€¦by the many regulatory obstacles and restrictions that currently impede the full realization of their potential,” particularly by “conflicting and restrictive state provisions governing scope of practice and prescriptive authorityâ€¦ as well as the fragmented and parsimonious state and federal standards for their reimbursement” (Safriet, 2011, p. 444).
On the national level, for example, nursing organizations and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing are devising a model for regulations governing Nurse Practitioners to encourage consistency in licensure and credentialing (Knight, 2010). State nursing associations are also working to advance and expand the roles of Nurse Practitioners and their equitable financial treatment. For example, the Florida Coalition of Advanced Practice Nurses, which faces one of the most restrictive and inequitable state systems, authored a white paper detailing barriers to excellent patient care and outlining the Coalition’s plan for future health care in Florida. The Coalition’s recommended solutions include: granting Florida’s Nurse Practitioners the authority to prescribe controlled substances, Schedules II — V; identifying medical services traditionally provided by physicians that could appropriately be furnished by Nurse Practitioners; supporting increasing access to payer panels for Nurse Practitioners; amending Florida Insurance Acts to mandate inclusion of Nurse Practitioners as health care providers; supporting the extension of medical staff privileges to Nurse Practitioners; strengthening the statutory provisions regarding Nurse Practitioners’ applications for clinical privileges; and passing regulations allowing Nurse Practitioners to provide evidence of financial responsibility in order to use state-regulated mechanism currently available to other health care providers (Florida Coalition of Advanced Practice Nurses, 2008, p. 2)
Fortunately, the large number of American Nurse Practitioners brings the most political clout that Nurse Practitioners have wielded in history. Though there are several associations of Nurse Practitioners, the “American College of Nurse Practitioners” has molded a determined and pointed mission “to ensure a solid policy and regulatory foundation that enables nurse practitioners to continue providing accessible, high quality health care” (American College of Nurse Practitioners, 2012). To support that mission, the ACNP “encourages Congress and the Administration to ensure that nurse practitioners are enfranchised in legislative and regulatory policymaking efforts, including membership on all relevant policymaking panels, committees, and other entities” (American College of Nurse Practitioners, 2012), and has outlined its 2012 Health Policy Agenda:
“â€¢ Acknowledge the central role of nurse practitioners in the design and implementation of an optimal U.S. healthcare delivery system;
â€¢ Provide full reimbursement and empanelment for all nurse practitioners in all settings;
â€¢ Include provider-neutral language in all federal legislation, regulation, and other policies;
â€¢ Recognize nurse practitioner’s authority to order home health and hospice services and to admit patients to skilled nursing facilities;
â€¢ Support development of a national nurse practitioner database and tracking mechanism;
â€¢ Support policies that recognize nurse practitioners as primary care providers in all settings including medical homes;
â€¢ Appropriate increased funding for nursing faculty, advanced practice nursing and basic nursing education and research;
â€¢ Assure inclusion of nurse practitioners in the development of health IT policy and system infrastructure; and â€¢ Incorporate the nurse practitioner perspective in national healthcare reform strategy” (American College of Nurse Practitioners, 2012).
Educational Challenges Regarding Prescriptive Authority Facing Advanced Nursing Practice
One major educational challenge regarding prescriptive authority involves the varying regulations of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The variety of regulations puts a greater demand on the educational system and on the Nurse Practitioner to understand and competently follow those regulations. As of 2012: Florida and Alabama allow their Nurse Practitioners to prescribe only legend drugs; Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri (pending DEA approval), Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia allow Nurse Practitioners to prescribe drugs only under Schedule III and IV; Alaska, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming allow Nurse Practitioners to prescribe drugs under Schedule II, III or IV (Nursing License Map, 2012). The variety of regulations and allowed medications make it incumbent on the educational system and the Nurse Practitioner to be consistently aware of the applicable state’s regulations.
A second educational challenge involves ongoing education about medications. Due to their increasing prescriptive authority, Nurse Practitioners are now an increasingly attractive target for pharmaceutical companies: “A recent report by Verispan, a health care informatics corporation, showed that NP retail prescriptions increased 22% in the first 8 months of 2006 (compared with the same time period a year earlier), while physician retail prescriptions increased at a significantly slower rate: only 2%” (Lebo, 2011). Consequently, in dealing with “old” drugs and new drugs touted by pharmaceutical companies, Nurse Practitioners must consistently hone their prescribing competencies by educating themselves about medications, their effects and their interactions with each other.
A third educational challenge comes from the Nurse Practitioners, themselves. A study in Washington State noted that as their prescriptive authority expands, Nurse Practitioners undergo three dimensions of transition: Resisting Change; Ambivalent about Change; Embracing Change. Furthermore, the study concluded that Nurse Practitioners have been required to adapt to change throughout their careers and must prepare for new areas of responsibility before the authority is granted by legislation so they will be ready for that new responsibility (Kaplan & Brown, 2007, p. 189).
A fourth educational challenge will be the realization that there is no one “right way” to develop and evaluate competencies, including prescriptive competencies (Klein, 2011, p. 75). Nevertheless, competency does and will require adherence to four defined steps of development: competency identification; determination of competency components and performance levels; competency evaluation; and process assessment (Klein, 2011, p. 85). Determined by a meta-analysis of competency set forth in articles published from 1966 — 2002, these steps are vital yet may be tailored to different educational programs.
Initially conceived as a hybrid diagnostic/nursing role to fill a gap in medical care due to limited numbers of physicians, the role of “Nurse Practitioners” has dramatically expanded over its 40+ year history. The estimated 135,000 currently practicing American Nurse Practitioners are now given prescriptive authority to varying degrees by every state, the District of Columbia and the Federal government. This development has occurred by patchwork design, resulting in legislation and regulations that simultaneously empower and impede Nurse Practitioners in their quest to provide the highest quality of patient care. Addressing the legal, ethical, financial, role acquisition and political issues inherent in these varying and sometimes inconsistent laws, Nurse Practitioners have organized into associations with political clout in order to positively influence American medical care and their role within it. Furthermore, Nurse Practitioners are developing increasing awareness of the educational challenges posed by regulations, a huge array of medications, the resistance of their own members and the realization that there is no one “right way” but that certain developmental steps must be followed to achieve superior prescriptive competencies. The persistence, resourcefulness and necessity of Nurse Practitioners logically portend their eventual full autonomy, full prescriptive authority and financial equity.
