Seeking licensing advice from a Virginia NP


Specializes in ICU, Military. Has 18 years experience.

I am a KY FNP and was just issued my Virginia NP license today (I live on the Virginia border). I am so confused about prescriptive authority, it appears I need to have this added to my license? Also can I go ahead and apply for DEA# now? I was interviewed by an addiction medicine clinic in my area in Virginia and need my DEA # to to start the DEAX waiver process. I have called the VA BON but are difficult to reach and the last lady I spoke with was extremely rude. I'd like to bounce a few questions off a VA NP before calling them back so I don't look like an idiot LOL. Thanks in advance.
