About One DNP

I earned my "terminal practice" degree in nursing from the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in a journey of excitement and challenge. It inspired me to advocate for an all encompassing clinical credential rather than continuing the hodgepodge of nonsensical initials. I hope these entries will provide entertainment and insight into the Doctor of Nursing Practice experience, which will soon be the entry standard for all advanced practice nurses.

Trashing the CAPA-NS!

As of today, nurse practitioners in Kentucky can submit a form to dissolve the collaborative agreement with physicians for non-scheduled medications, provided they have been prescribing for 4 years. This is an exciting change on the road to full practice authority. Next stop, the removing the barriers for scheduled prescribing!
