Nurse Practitioner Laws & Rules

The Nurse Practitioner is jointly regulated by the North Carolina Board of Nursing (NCBON) and the North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB). The dual regulation is carried out via the Nurse Practitioner Joint Subcommittee which is composed of members of the Board of Nursing and members of the Medical Board to whom responsibility is given by G.S. 90-8.2 and G.S. 90-171.23(b)(14) to develop rules to govern the practice of Nurse Practitioners in North Carolina. Although the rule codification is maintained separately by the North Carolina Board of Nursing and North Carolina Medical Board, the Nurse Practitioner practice requirements and scope are exactly the same in each set of rules.
