Last updated 16 December 2019


Date: 16 December 2019

The RACGP has made a submission to the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services regarding a proposal to authorise Victorian nurse practitioners to obtain and to use, sell or supply any Schedule 2, 3, 4 or 8 poison (medications).

The RACGP supports the proposed approach, provided nurse practitioner prescribing takes place only within their defined scope of practice and under the appropriate collaborative care agreements.
