I am a PA or NP or other clinician. Can I be trained to prescribe buprenorphine?
The CARA 2016 law provides that nurse practitioners and physician assistants who can prescribe narcotics are able to prescribe buprenorphine, in addition to the MDs and DOs who have been able to prescribe it since 2000. A 24 hour training is required. The full 24 hour training is available through this online activity.
Other clinicians are welcome to take the Buppractice training activity for educational purposes.
