Yowza. Practicing outside of their boarded specialty isn't going to fly anymore. I'm hoping more states adopt stringent positions on this especially for those attempting to work solely in psych without the certification.
This had me eye rolling, talk about the fox guarding the hen house:
From page 3-4.
"Several APRN Advisory Committee members state that once a CNP is licensed,
the hospital/employer should have the discretion to determine the acuity and
complexity of patient conditions that a CNP may evaluate and manage,
regardless of graduate education and national certification. They believe the
Board should not play any role after the APRN is nationally certified and licensed"
