WOW!! I am flabbergasted! Wasn’t Florida the last place in the union to get schedule II rights? Congratulations! I know wages can be low there- maybe they’ll be able to rise now.

What an awesome achievement.

WOW!!...the last place I thought would pass FPA. It's great news!

PMHNPs and CRNAs aren't included, bummer. But still a great start.

That's my understand and what's said in a PMHNP group, but I haven't read the bill in detail. It might not include NPs who work in acute-care either.

Actually Georgia still can't write for schedule II at all.......

In Texas we can only write for schedule II if we work for hospice or inpatient.

I'd call inability to write schedule 2 with full practice authority a win. In an environment where clinics and clinicians are being scrutinized for writing controlled substances, having the legal up front conversation with new patients in my own clinic to not prescribe them would be fantastic. I can prescribe them under my collaborator in Michigan and with the sheer numbers our practice (and this region) has done over decades, addressing the opioid epidemic has been a patient management nightmare. Not having to check databases for scripts, investigate patients rational for doses, or having to regularly do UDS's to ensure compliance in an area where diversion is huge would make my day.

Same with CNMs. Still, they're telling us it's a good start and will help us pass a better bill in the future...
