South Carolina Revises Prescriptive Authority for APRNs and PAs

Posted By : Rph Buddy

Effective July 1, 2018, S.345 revises the prescriptive authority of certain advanced practice registered nurses with respect to controlled substances and authorizes physician assistants to perform tele-medicine to include authorized prescribing of Schedule II and Schedule III prescriptions.

During this transition, it may be necessary for the pharmacist to go to DEA’s verification site to verify the APRN has changed their DEA to reflect CII authority.

Additional information and a copy of the new rule be found at the following link: PRACTICE&ID=64B16-27.831
