Abstract

We assessed the attitudes of Wyoming physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and nurse practitioners about granting prescriptive authority to nurse practitioners. Support for the issue was mixed, with physicians expressing the strongest disagreement. All groups supported limitation of authority to a specific drug formulary, collaborative regulation, and mandatory certification and continuing education if prescriptive authority is granted to nurse practitioners.
