A newly formed Ohio Board of Nursing CPG will meet on May 15, 2017 to decide on the format of the new EXCLUSIONARY APRN prescriptive formulary. An exclusionary formulary means that all medications become “may prescribe”, with the exception of those listed on the formulary. This is mandated by House Bill 216.

OAAPN has sent a letter to the CPG explaining why a simple, one-page exclusionary formulary is the most appropriate for APRNs, collaborators and our patients.

We need YOU and your collaborator to voice your support and let the CPG know why a complicated exclusionary formulary is not necessary and serves only to impede patient care.

1)     Please email, call or write to the CPG (contact info below)

2)     Send a signed letter from you and your collaborator (must be received by April 15).

3)     Even better – come to the CPG meeting and be present to voice/display your support!
