The new law “was dropped” in June 2021, meaning it needs to be reviewed. This will provide a new opportunity to increase the benefits that nurses will bring to patient care, especially basic care.

Nurse Practitioners (PN) is required to practice written protocols reflecting the specialties of the practice in which the PR is certified. Protocols should also reflect current, accepted medical and care practice. Additional protocols in sub-specialties (e.g..B hematology, orthopedics, dermatology) suitable for the practice of NP may be used, but should not be taken into account in the cooperation agreement. PNs work in a variety of clinical environments, depending on their specialties.

These recruitments include private practices of doctors and specialists, health clinics, municipal health centres, hospitals, nursing homes and home health services. PNs can also be educators, administrators or researchers and work in schools or offices. New York State requires PNs to have a cooperation agreement with a physician, but PNs are self-sufficient and do not practice under the supervision of the cooperating physician. Legislation has been put in place in New York to increase the scope of practice for NPLs. Although it is necessary to practice in collaboration with a doctor, strict supervision is not mandatory. Freedom of prescribing and in more trivial areas leaves New York nurses almost independent in their practice. Questions about collaborative practice contracts and practical protocols can be asked of the Nursing Board Office by email nursebd@nysed.gov or by phone at 518-474-3817. . .
