SCS/SB 509 - This act modifies the requirements for collaborative practice arrangements between advanced practice registered nurses and collaborating physicians. Advanced practice registered nurses are required to submit a minimum of ten percent of the documentation of their delivery of health care services to the physician for review every fourteen days. If the advanced practice registered nurse's practice includes the prescription of controlled substances, the charts reviewed shall include as part of the minimum ten percent of health care services reviewed by the physician a minimum of twenty percent of the cases in which the advanced practice registered nurse wrote a prescription for controlled substances.

This act is similar to SS/SCS/HCS/HB 247 (2009).
