     AN ACT relating to nurses.
     Create a new section of KRS Chapter 314 to establish a Collaborative Prescribing Agreement Joint Advisory Committee; set membership of the committee at 3 advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) who prescribe nonscheduled legend drugs and 3 physicians who currently or previously signed a collaborative agreement with an APRN for prescribing nonscheduled legend drugs (CAPA-NS); authorize the committee to recommend items to the nursing and medical boards, including a common CAPA-NS form; establish methods to assist APRNs who need a physician to sign a CAPA-NS in emergency and non-emergency situations; require the committee to forward complaints to the appropriate licensing board without discussing or reviewing any complaint or actions by the practitioner; declare that each board retains jurisdiction over its licensees and committee members; attach the committee to the nursing board, while each board is responsible for the expenses of its members; alternate committee meetings between the facilities of the two boards; amend KRS 314.042 to set out specific requirements for a CAPA-NS agreement similar to those already established for controlled substance collaborative agreements; allow an APRN to discontinue or be exempt from the CAPA-NS requirement in limited circumstances after the APRN has prescribed under a CAPA-NS for 4 years in a certified population focus; clarify that an APRN cannot be required to maintain a CAPA-NS after the 4 years, but may choose to continue a CAPA-NS indefinitely; direct an APRN to notify the nursing board if the APRN will be prescribing without a CAPA-NS; permit an APRN from another state seeking licensure by endorsement to prescribe without a CAPA-NS if that APRN either had a collaborative prescribing agreement with a physician or prescribed independently for at least 4 years; require an APRN who has prescribed for less than 4 years when the new requirements take effect to complete the 4 years before being eligible to prescribe without a CAPA-NS.
