Scope of Practice Questions

  1. Hi all.

    Basicly being lazy and trying not to spend the time looking at each state. Does anyone know of a web site that consoladates and compares state scope of practice documents?

    I dont know of a website but this book does an excellent job: Nurse Practitioner's Business Practice and Legal Guide, Second Edition: Books: Carolyn Buppert

    If you are wanting to know what tasks are specifically allowed - that gets a bit trickier and probably needs to be asked directly to the boards.

    I just want to add that just because the BON says that you can do a task, doesn't necessarily mean a hospital is going to credential you to do so.

    Having been a DON and Assist Hosp Admin, I understand very well about credentialling.

    My wife (a PA) and I are just looking for the best places to finally settle down.

    One of the frustrating things is that states that are good for me arn't so good for my PA wife and vise versa. Looks like we might have to do one of those stadle a state border things.
