Abstract

NP practice autonomy means prescribing medication and treatment based on graduate nursing education and credentials, without physician supervision. NP advancement and optimal professional practice depends on autonomy. NP researchers conducted a study to describe legislative initiatives in states where NPs practice and prescribe autonomously. This article outlines the strategies NPs used to pass autonomy legislation in South Carolina. NPs in other states can use these strategies to pursue autonomy legislation.
