    Does anyone know the status of CNS in Tennessee? I've tried to research this, but I cannot find specific wording that explains whether or not CNS have prescriptive authority, ability to diagnose, interpret tests, etc. I did find info that stated CNS were included in the APN category, but not much else info,

    Thanks,
    Deb

    If you can't find any info on the TN BON website (and I perused it too) you might need to call or email them.

    I know that psych CNSs are eligible for Rx authority (if they meet the educational requirements and apply for the expensive certificate from the TN BON), but I don't know if that applies to other specialties as well.
