Age limits for Adult Nurse Practitioners in Washington State? Please?Register Today!
- by JHU_BlueJay Sep 27, '12I have looked on the state DOH/BON website, scoured through every state code, and even called the BON and haven't been able to find an answer.
It is really simple, I just want to know what the minimum age adult nurse practitioners in Washington State are allowed to treat? For example, in Maryland the minimum age is 16.
My frustration is beyond boiling over at this point, hopefully someone here knows.
Thank you in advance for your help

- Oct 17, '12 by nursetimWhat was the age limit in your training? Go with that unless it is specified by the state. WA doesn't address this. Neither did NM. Where I was trained it was 16 I believe. NP I worked with in NM was trained down the road a ways in Greensboro was trained for 13 y/o's, so that is how she rolled.

- Oct 19, '12 by nursetimQuote from benm93Actually i just spoke with someone at NCBON and she happened to mention 13 being the age I could see Pt.s. so in NC it is 13.At Duke I was under the impression it was 16. Oh well you learn something new everyday.NC and some other states in the south ANPs treat 12 and up, and most programs train accordinglyLast edit by TheCommuter on Oct 20, '12 : Reason: removed person's name
