NY State- RN as an alcohol and substance abuse counselor

  1. 0 Hi all!
    I just met an RN from NY state who had her own private practice in Alcohol and Substance abuse. She saw clients, had no special certifications at all and said that her ability to do this was covered under NY state Nurse Practice act.
    She called Albany and confirmed this.
    Her clients were private pay.
    Anyone ever heard about this and your thoughts?
