The main beneficiaries of this legislation are the 170,000 new Medicaid beneficiaries who, for the first time thanks to the extension of Medicaid, have obtained medical care and have not yet had access to adequate primary care resources. Prior to the adoption of this legislation, APRN practices were concluded because doctors could not sign cooperation agreements. Nurses can now reopen offices in this state where 50 of the 55 counties are considered undeserved health zones. APRNs apps are available online (www.wvrnboard.wv.gov/forms/Pages/default.aspx). The application can also be completed via an online portal (www.wvrnboard.wv.gov/licensing/Pages/default.aspx). a printer is needed.

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 aspirant must complete an accredited program (apps.sos.wv.gov/adlaw/csr/ruleview.aspx?document=8682). The accreditor would be an agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and/or the U.S. Department of Education. State rules require nurses to complete midwives in programs approved by the American College of Nurse Midwives.
