I am a recently licensed LPN in FL. I have been working at a small primary care clinic for about 2 months. Some of our practitioners prefer the nurse to write the patient's refill Rx's on the prescription pad for them so that they can just sign it. At first, I thought it was no big deal. Just writing the prescription over, as it had already been written, and just the long term meds, like for HTN, or DM, not pain meds. When patients request refills by phone, some prescribers do not complete prescriptions for call in, omitting the strength, quantity, and amount of refills, expecting the nurse to figure it out based on previous prescriptions. I now feel like the prescribers are expecting me, the LPN, to write their prescriptions for them, and I do not feel comfortable. Today, I had some patient's requesting pain medications and psych drugs that I did not feel comfortable writing, so I didn't. The prescriber sent the patients back to me with a blank, signed prescription slip, telling me to fill it in. I really want to know what the rules are about this. Has anyone ever been in this situation? I have looked at the FL BON Nurse Practice Act, and I can't find it. I don't want to lose my license because the practitioner doesn't feel like writing.
