SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) To all you current pharmacy students and working pharmacists: What are the prescribing privileges of NPs if they are not FNPs but specialized in pediatrics (PNP) or Women's (WHNP) for example. I know pediatricians can prescribe for adults if they wanted/needed to (something obviously not controlled), but can PNPs do the same or are they restricted to people under the age of 21 in their scope of practice? Can a WHNP prescribe for children and men or just women (say example a male friend needed help and needed a zpack or something)? How does their scope of practice affect their prescription capabilities? Do pharmacies have issues with NPs prescribing harmless antibiotics, BC, etc for themselves?
