BREAKING NEWS; HB 977 PASSES AND IS ON IT'S WAY TO THE GOVERNER

Posted over 2 years ago by Doreen Cassarino

From the Florida Nurse Practitioner Network

HB 977, the Mental Health Workforce Bill, passed out of the house and is on it's way to the Governor's desk for final signature and passage into law.

This bill allows Psychiatric NPs to prescribe psychotropic controlled substances to patients or all ages and authorizes them to be the second signature on involuntary admission to a psychiatric facility.

If any other controlled substance prescribing language passes tomorrow and goes to the Governor, it becomes law and takes the place of what passed today in prescribing.
