Pending any processes that may be implemented by the Board of Registration in Nursing, this is the only way to do this at this time. Per section 244 CMR 4.07(2)(a) of the Emergency APRN regulations that remain in effect until final Full Practice regulations are promulgated, CRNAs, CNPs or PNMHCSs [...]
