Mr. Dunn,

I am following up on your request on behalf of the NH Nurse Practitioners Association in 2015 to allow APRNs to provide medical supervision to licensed NH youth recreation camps. At the time of your inquiry the licensing rules allowed only physicians to perform this duty. It was determined that the State would entertain waivers to the requirement to allow for APRNs to provide this service.

I am writing to inform you that amended youth recreation camp licensing rules (PDF) will go into effect on September 1, 2017. These amendments specifically allow licensed APRNs (in addition to physicians) to provide medical supervision to licensed youth recreation camps.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Chip
