Will I be able to prescribe medical cannabis upon completion?

  • Medical Cannabis is not an FDA-approved drug, so it does not get prescribed. If you are an Advance Practice Nurse with current prescriptive authority, you may be able to recommend medical cannabis (or certify patients to use medical cannabis) depending on your practice jurisdiction. Please verify this with your state board of nursing or other certifying body before registering for this course.
