I, (the doctor`s name and professional license number) , of (the doctor`s address) herein have a formal supervisory relationship, permanent warrants or a protocol established with (number of) emergency paramedics, (number of persons) paramedics or (number of persons) registered nurses (s). After registration as a standalone APRN, protocols are no longer required. No, any APRN that does not currently practice in Florida does not need to send a protocol, but you must send a financial responsibility form to our advisory office and check the corresponding box. The protocol established between the RNAP and the physician must contain certain information as described in the rule above. In addition, the protocol requires the following language: in the past, minutes had to be filed each year and whenever there was a change in protocols. Effective May 6, 2013, an amendment to Rule 64B8-35.002, FCC requires that minutes be filed within 30 days of the renewal of the NRA licence and for any amendments, including the closing of the protocol. This amendment makes the rule in line with the care board`s requirements for protocols. The doctor and the RNA must keep a copy of the protocol for at least four years. In Florida, an Advanced Registered Nurse (RNA) is defined by S.
464.003, Florida`s statutes as “any person admitted to florida to practice professional and certified nursing in advanced or specialized nursing care, including certified nurses, nurses and certified nurses.” In accordance with Rule 64B8-35.002, Florida Administrative Code, ARNP “must perform only medical diagnostic, treatment and operation records according to a protocol between the RNAP and a physician, an osteopathic physician or a licensed dentist in Florida.” The physician must submit a notice within 30 days of the conclusion of the relationship, prescriptions or minutes. The notification is also available within 30 days of the end of the relationship, markets or minutes for more information on the minutes, see 458.348, F.S. Several members have recently followed this process and wanted to ensure that their colleagues are informed. 458.348 (1) (a), Florida Statutes, requires only that the doctor declare the number of APRN monitored.
