24-Hour Online Training for NPs and PAs

ASAM, AAPA and AANP have formed a collaborative to provide the 24-hour waiver training for physician assistants and nurse practitioners. The three organizations are authorized by statute to provide this training. Educational content has been identified and/or created to satisfy the 24-hour requirement as described in the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA).

To qualify for a waiver, NPs and PAs must:
• Be licensed under state law to prescribe Schedule III, IV, or V medications for pain
• Complete not less than 24 hours of appropriate education through a qualified provider
• Through other training or experience, demonstrate the ability to treat and manage OUD
• If required by state law, be supervised or work in collaboration with a qualifying physician (physician must be waivered) to prescribe medications for the treatment of OUD
