Note: Beginning January 1, 2008, the North Carolina Board of Nursing and the North Carolina Medical Board began a standardized approach to Nurse Practitioner Compliance Reviews. The purpose of the reviews is to ensure that the nurse practitioner is meeting the requirements of the Boards’ rules and regulations.
Nurse practitioners are chosen at random for a review of their practice arrangements to assure that they are in compliance with the laws and administrative rules governing their practice.
As stated in the NP rules, certain information and records shall be maintained and made available to representatives from either Board upon request. Compliance Reviews will provide the opportunity for each nurse practitioner to review the Boards’ rules and regulations governing their practice and to ensure that they and their supervising physician have the necessary mechanisms in place to meet these requirements.
