MO Increases Mileage Restrictions for APRN's

Thank you to the Missouri Association of Rural Health Clinics for the update on the Emergency Rule submitted by the Missouri State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts and the Missouri State Board of Nursing (boards). They have found an immediate danger to the public health, safety, and welfare that requires emergency action by increasing the mileage restrictions to seventy-five (75) miles.

Current regulation, an advanced practice registered nurse cannot be more than thirty (30) miles or fifty (50) miles in a health professional shortage area from the collaborating physician. This rule will expand that limit to seventy-five (75) miles to provide adequate care for our citizens and their medical needs.  Effective April 26, 2018.
