Notice to Physician Assistants

Notice; Physician Assistants—Act 453 of the 2015 Session of the Louisiana Legislature amended the law governing physician assistants (PAs) to include, among other items, Schedule II CDS within the drugs that could be delegated to a PA by a supervising physician (SP). A rule-making effort to conform the Board’s existing rules to the changes is in development. In the interim, the law supersedes the rules where there is a disparity. A PA whose SP wishes to delegate Schedule II authority should complete and return to the Board an updated Notice of Intent to practice (available on this website).
