Nurse Practitioners

A4PN works with Nurse Practitioners, as well as nurses undertaking Nurse Practitioner studies, who have an interest in AOD and pharmacotherapy.

AOD/Pharmacotherapy Nurse Practitioners offer diagnostic and prescribing expertise while operating from a holistic nursing framework.

Endorsed Nurse Practitioners are an important value-add to the pharmacotherapy service system. Examples of service system enhancements include:

  • Assessment, consultation and education
  • Enhanced withdrawal and management capacity
  • Pharmacotherapy prescribing

A4PN supports Nurse Practitioners through:

  • Scholarships to support Nurses undertaking Nurse Practitioner studies
  • Links with experienced AOD and Pharmacotherapy Nurse Practitioners
  • Community of Practice events and other education
