Briefly describe the practice agreements for PMHNPs in your state

Assignment

In many states, nurse practitioners are completely autonomous professionals. In other states, however, NPs have a wide range of “restrictive” practice ranging from requirements for a “supervising” physician to requirements for a “collaborative” agreement with a physician.

  • Briefly describe the practice agreements for PMHNPs in  your state.
  • Explain the two physician collaboration issues that you identified.
  • Explain what you think are the barriers to PMHNPs practicing independently in

your state.

  • Outline a plan for how you might address PMHNP practice  issues in your state.

(Include outside resources to address all bullet points)
