This week challenging debate…
I want to take this opportunity to discuss our new granted privilege to prescribe controlled substance. There are five classes of substance considered under the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 (Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, 2019).
The privilege for Nurse Practitioners(NPs) to prescribe controlled substance was legally approved in Florida, the last state to grant such a privilege for midlevel practitioners, in 2017( Kellangs & Maye, 2017). Once licensed as Florida NP, you will need 2 hours of controlled substance prescription CEUs and to apply for the DEA license. The application cost $ 731 and it’s valid for three years. NPs are required to have a controlled substance agreement with the supervising physician.

Do you think the ability to prescribe controlled substance benefits the Nurse Practitioners practice? Why or why not?
In Florida all controlled substance prescribed must be reported to E-FORCSE Dispense Guide. By accessing E-FORCSE database you will avoid multiple healthcare providers re filling narcotics not due, or multiple narcotics to the same patient.
