Federal Exemptions for Administration of Controlled Substances

The Federal Government has made some changes to the regulations that allow nurses to administer controlled substances. The three nursing Colleges, along with the Colleges of Pharmacists and Physicians and Surgeons have collaborated to provide ongoing updates with respect to the recently implemented federal exemptions. All RPNs are encouraged to examine how this might impact their practice.
