The absence of List II controlled substances is very limited and cannot prescribe any List II controlled substance. Since 2012, she has been a professor at Emorys Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and a CHOA practitioner. Their effective research focuses on childhood obesity, parental collection remuneration, and adolescent reproductive health care. It is remarkable that she works mainly with underserved populations and is fluent in Spanish. This is the law that governs the practice of APRN in the State of Georgia. It allows the practice of APRN, but does not allow APRNs to provide written prescriptions to patients, but allows the ordering of medications, medical treatments or diagnostic studies by delegation based on a nurse`s protocol. I think that for NPLs, this is what is needed for the citizens of our states. There are provider shortages on the physician side, and by limiting the practice of other providers, we are simply limiting the ability to care for patients and do the right thing. In a state like GA, we have counties that don`t have a doctor at all, and it`s hard to get a practice contract. Doctors in our state cannot monitor more than eight PRs at the same time. We can safely manage, diagnose and treat patients, and we have proven in several studies that we are as good or better than doctors.

We should be allowed to train to reach the highest level of our training. GA CAPRN encourages all nurses to participate in the 2020 election (yes, yes!) to get informed, support a candidate of their choice and let them know that they are nurses. For nursing practitioners in South Carolina and other „restricted practice states,“ treating patients can be challenging. Under the South Carolina Nurse Practice Act, PRs must practice within 45 miles by a medical caregiver, making it impossible to provide health care in rural areas without doctors. Under the OCGA version 43-34-25 of the act, the APRN signs its own name on revenues. This type of protocol agreement must be submitted to the Board of Medical Examins within 30 days of signing (with a fee of 150 $US) and a copy must be kept in your practice. . . .
