Modification of collaboration--Method and frequency.
The boards may authorize
those modifications in the method and frequency of collaboration of a nurse practitioner or nurse
midwife required by § 36-9A-17 that they consider appropriate based upon a finding of adequate
collaboration, training, and proficiency. The boards may permit a physician to establish a
collaborative relationship with more than one nurse practitioner or nurse midwife and shall establish
the number of nurse practitioners or nurse midwives, up to four FTE, based upon a finding that
adequate collaboration will exist under the modification proposed.
Nothing in this section is intended to diminish the professional and legal responsibility of a
collaborating physician or the nurse practitioner or nurse midwife as provided in § 36-9A-17.
