If a NP in Al wants to prescribe suboxone....what are the steps for doing so?
The CRNP/PA in Alabama can apply for a data-waiver to prescribe Suboxone for addiction once they do the following:
- Obtain a QACSC and DEA
- Take the 24-hours of CME that SAMSHA requires before applying
This is currently not regulated by the Alabama BME as the data-waiver program is federal; however, the QACSC protocol still needs to be followed anytime a CRNP/PA is prescribing Controlled IIIs (Suboxone) in the State of Alabama.
