The Future of West Virginia Care is pleased to announce that HB 4334, after nine years of work, passed both the WV House of Delegates (unanimously), the WV Senate (a vote against) and was signed on March 27, 2016 by Governor Tomblin. This law abolishes the restrictive requirement of a cooperation agreement with a physician after three years of APRN practice, expands the form of prescription for a long time and allows APRNs to sign documents that have been previously signed only by doctors. In addition, the old statutes are being retired, which limit the individual practices of certified nurses to the name “Advanced Practice Registered Nurse” (APRN). An APRN submits a separate application for prescription privilege. A $125 fee is charged. The APRN must review a cooperation agreement. Midwifery nurses must have formal and written cooperation agreements with obstetricians or other qualified physicians and submit them to the Board of Directors. APRNAs seeking permission to write orders must also submit cooperation agreements. A practice agreement is required between a supervisor and a PA. The agreement must be approved by the relevant Accreditation Committee and include, among other things, monitoring mechanisms and parameters in which the Palestinian Authority will operate. W. Va. Code No.

Medical procedures must comply with West Virginia laws and State Board of Medicine rules. W. Va. Code No. 30-3E-12 So the West Virginia Nurses Association fought to eliminate the community medical requirement – and said this will allow nurses to look after these rural areas.
