HB 216 – Transition from Certification to Licensure effective April 6, 2017 eliminates the certificate of authority (COA) and the Certificate to Prescribe (CTP) and replaces them with a license that includes prescriptive authority for all Certified Nurse Practitioners (CNPs), Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs) and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs).

CNPs, CNSs and CNMs who hold an active Certificate of Authority (COA), but never obtained a Certificate to Prescribe (CTP), Certificate to Prescribe – Externship (CTP-E), or the required 45 hours of advanced pharmacology in the last five years, are not

immediately eligible for APRN licensure under HB 216.

If these COA holders do not obtain the 45 hours of advanced pharmacology and/or fail to

submit adequate documentation of the completed course of study as part of 2017 COA

renewal/APRN license issuance process by December 31, 2017, they must cease

APRN practice on January 1, 2018. COAs will no longer be recognized beginning

in 2018.
