Arkansas State Board Of Nursing Collaborative Practice Agreement
An advanced nurse currently licensed or licensed in another state may be licensed in Arkansas by approval. The nurse will conduct the licensing exam as well as the verification of the successful certification exam. Dental hygienists who work in dental clinics, municipal health centres or publicly funded dental facilities and who have full-time benefits for at least one year may work under the general supervision of a dentist, meaning that the dentist is not required to be in the treatment centre while the procedures are being performed. Arkansas law also provides for a partnership care program for dental hygienists, where dental hygienists are able to support children, the elderly and people with developmental disabilities without the presence or screening by a dentist in certain environments. Ark. Stat. Ann. No. 17-82-7 Act 1208 of A.C.A.
Regulation 20-7-704 expressly states that all NPAs who have issued a certificate of standardization after December 31, 2015 must receive, within two (2) years following the issuance of the certificate of limitation, a minimum of three (3) hours of instruction, information on the maintenance of professional limits and the rules, rules and laws applicable to the NRPA in the state. Chapter 4, sect. VIII, A.7.). To meet this requirement, you must take two courses, Advanced Practice Nursing in Arkansas (2 hours of contact) and prescription abuse and abuse (1 hour of contact). An aspiring nurse must complete an end-of-study training tailored to her planned practice (Nurse Practitioner Program in Arkansas). The Board of Directors stipulates that a licensing program for a clinical nurse specialist must encompass both teaching and practice in a clinical field. Once the training is complete, the APRN must submit a copy of the EC, a new Collaborative Practice Agreement (CPA) to the ASBN with a language indicating that you are requesting the waiver of DATA and proof that your co-operative physician also has a DATA waiver. The ASBN will notify the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as soon as the criteria are met, and the DEA will then assign a special identification number to be included in all buprenorphine prescriptions for the treatment of opioid dependence. This is in addition to the APRN AED number.
