    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,

    Section 5. The Nurse Practice Act is amended by changing
Section 65-43 as follows:
 
    (225 ILCS 65/65-43)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
    Sec. 65-43. Full practice authority.
    (a) An Illinois-licensed advanced practice registered
nurse certified as a nurse practitioner, nurse midwife, or
clinical nurse specialist shall be deemed by law to possess
the ability to practice without a written collaborative
agreement as set forth in this Section.
    (b) An advanced practice registered nurse certified as a
nurse midwife, clinical nurse specialist, or nurse
practitioner who files with the Department a notarized
attestation of completion of at least 250 hours of continuing
education or training and at least 4,000 hours of clinical
experience after first attaining national certification shall
not require a written collaborative agreement, except as
specified in subsection (c). Documentation of successful
completion shall be provided to the Department upon request.
    Continuing education or training hours required by
subsection (b) shall be in the advanced practice registered
nurse's area of certification as set forth by Department rule.
    The clinical experience must be in the advanced practice
registered nurse's area of certification. The clinical
experience shall be in collaboration with a physician or
physicians. Completion of the clinical experience must be
attested to by the collaborating physician or physicians or
employer and the advanced practice registered nurse. If the
collaborating physician or physicians or employer is unable to
attest to the completion of the clinical experience, the
Department may accept other evidence of clinical experience as
established by rule.
    (c) The scope of practice of an advanced practice
registered nurse with full practice authority includes:
        (1) all matters included in subsection (c) of Section
    65-30 of this Act;
        (2) practicing without a written collaborative
    agreement in all practice settings consistent with
    national certification;
        (3) authority to prescribe both legend drugs and
    Schedule II through V controlled substances; this
    authority includes prescription of, selection of, orders
    for, administration of, storage of, acceptance of samples
    of, and dispensing over the counter medications, legend
    drugs, and controlled substances categorized as any
    Schedule II through V controlled substances, as defined in
    Article II of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, and
    other preparations, including, but not limited to,
    botanical and herbal remedies;
        (4) prescribing benzodiazepines or Schedule II
    narcotic drugs, such as opioids, only in a consultation
    relationship with a physician; this consultation
    relationship shall be recorded in the Prescription
    Monitoring Program website, pursuant to Section 316 of the
    Illinois Controlled Substances Act, by the physician and
    advanced practice registered nurse with full practice
    authority and is not required to be filed with the
    Department; the specific Schedule II narcotic drug must be
    identified by either brand name or generic name; the
    specific Schedule II narcotic drug, such as an opioid, may
    be administered by oral dosage or topical or transdermal
    application; delivery by injection or other route of
    administration is not permitted; at least monthly, the
    advanced practice registered nurse and the physician must
    discuss the condition of any patients for whom a
    benzodiazepine or opioid is prescribed; nothing in this
    subsection shall be construed to require a prescription by
    an advanced practice registered nurse with full practice
    authority to require a physician name;
        (5) authority to obtain an Illinois controlled
    substance license and a federal Drug Enforcement
    Administration number; and
        (6) use of only local anesthetic.
    The scope of practice of an advanced practice registered

completion of forms and the payment of fees.
    (e) Nothing in this Act shall be construed to authorize an
advanced practice registered nurse with full practice
authority to provide health care services required by law or
rule to be performed by a physician.
