NP Supports Change in Regulation for PA Colleagues

As one of the thousands of practicing Nurse Practitioners in the Commonwealth with a DEA license, I am able to prescribe scheduled medications without the name of a collaborating physician included. I request my Physician's Associate colleagues (who also hold the same DEA license and similar collaborating practice agreements) be relieved of the extra and unnecessary burden the current regulation requires.  Thank you.
