Can Nurse Practitioners prescribe medications? Yes. How a Nurse Practitioner prescribes medications is regulated by each state's Nurse Practice Act. In Texas, Nurse Practitioners have prescriptive authority through written agreements with a collaborating physician.

Except in hospitals and hospices where some APRNs and PAs may order Schedule 2 medications for their patients, Texas law forces APRNs and PAs to rely upon a physician to prescribe these drugs for their patients ( CNAP, 2017, February 17). In most circumstances, that physician will be the one who delegates prescriptive authority.

Board of Nursing, 228.2. Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) (ADOPTED 11/16/18) – Like the rules above, this new rule requires APRNs to access the PMP prior to prescribing or dispensing opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or carisoprodol; and further authorizes, but does not require, practitioners to access the PMP prior to prescribing or dispensing any controlled substance.

If this pain clinic is in Texas, and the NPs and PAs are signing prescriptions for Schedule 2 drugs, then all the NPs, PAs and delegating physicians are practicing illegally. The NPs and PAs would be able to make out the prescriptions and then the physician could sign them.

Nurse practitioners practicing in Texas are only allowed to prescribe controlled substances only if working in collaboration with a physician. This arrangement must be outlined in a formal document signed by both the NP and the MD.

If the Texas Board of Nursing limits an APRN’s authority to order or prescribe drugs or devices, the licensee may enter into a prescriptive authority agreement and order or prescribe drugs and devices only to the extent permitted by the board order.

Consistent with strict supervision guidelines, nurse practitioners in Texas are allowed to prescribe only under physician supervision. Furthermore, they may only prescribe a 30 day supply of medications and are not allowed to prescribe schedule 2 drugs such as Lortab or Adderall.

All advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) who prescribe opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or carisoprodol are required to check the prescription monitoring program (PMP) before writing prescriptions for drugs in these categories.

prescribe controlled substances. (AL ST § 20–2– 252). For controlled substances, NPs will be required to have demonstrated safe practice for 12 months prior to application for a controlled substance certificate. If authorized by the collaborative practice agreement, APRNs can prescribe those hydrocodone combinations reclassified
