Compare and contrast APRN practice in Hawaii versus APRN practice in Utah regarding independent versus dependent practice (Physician involvement required for diagnosis & treatment?) as well as prescriptive authority, supervision, etc. Basically the full scope of practice and limitations between states. Need to use the most current state practice and licensure laws for APRNs scope of practice.
