Limitations of Practice as a Nurse Practitioner in New Hampshire - 2022

Last Reviewed: July 20th, 2022

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are licensed to carry out tasks considered advanced for registered nurses (RNs). Limitation of practice regulatory systems may interfere with their ability to provide such services and contribute immensely to the well-being of a patient.

Fortunately, New Hampshire operates with the “full practice” framework which allows nurse practitioners to practice to the full extent of their ability and training. This increases job satisfaction and gives nurse practitioners a voice in the healthcare system.

The National Academy of Medicine, recommends the full practice structure and NPs should commit to advocacy towards the implementation of this structure in all states.
