Important Points

  • All RSOs, AMPs and ANPs listed on a RML prior to January 1, 2011 are grandfathered
  • All new proposed RSOs are now required to be board certified, be named as an AU/AMP/ANP on a RML, be a certified AMP or complete a structured educational program (200 hours didactic training, 1 year full-time training)
  • All new proposed AMPs are now required to be board certified or satisfy educational, training and work experience requirements
  • ALL NEW proposed RSOs, AMPs, and ANPs are now required to submit WRITTEN ATTESTION signed by a qualified preceptor RSO, AMP or ANP, as applicable.
