Nurse Practitioners now authorized to prescribe Suboxone®

July 20, 2017

Alberta nurse practitioners (NPs) can now prescribe buprenorphine-naloxone (Suboxone®) to patients to treat an addiction to opioids.

Many NPs work with marginalized populations who may have reduced access to services. Additional authorized prescribers will contribute to the implementation of provincial harm-reduction strategies and provide more access to options for Albertans addicted to narcotics.

As a reminder, you can find a list of NPs and their individual prescriber IDs in the Prescriber List section of ACP’s website.

To view the full announcement, visit the CARNA website.
