Graduated from state with restricted practice and moving to state with full practice

Hi,

I have graduated from a program in a restricted practice state and I am relocating to New Mexico. The education verification form that my program needs to fill out asks about whether I had 400 hours of precepted experience prescribing “dangerous drugs”. Does anyone have any experience with this process? Is this referring to the fact the NPs in New Mexico can prescribe Schedule II medications? If so, it looks like I will need to have 400 precepted hours prior to getting my license or getting prescribing privileges? Just looking for input! I was not able to find much about this particular part of the application process online. I will likely call the BON this week but just wanted to see if anyone went through this same process and could give insight.

Thanks in advance!

Are you already licensed in the restricted state?

I am not currently licensed. I have sent in all my documentation for both states. The state I'm currently residing in will not actually give me a license until I have accepted a job and can list a supervising physician.

I have applied to NM for endorsement and the question you are referring to on that form is for the school to complete. I believe it is referring to your clinical education received whilst in the program and the program will vouch for that when they complete the form for submission to the NM BON.

If there is a problem, the school and/or the NM BON will let you know for sure. They (NMBON) are very responsive.

Hope this helps 🙂
