Dispensing Physicians, Physician Assistants, & Nurse Practitioners - Registration Requirements



A physician who dispenses prescription drugs, for a fee or other charge, must register with the Board each year. All dispensing physicians must comply in all respects with the laws and regulations that apply to pharmacists governing the distribution of drugs. These responsibilities include drug utilization review, patient counseling, appropriate packaging, labeling, and record keeping.

The Board registers Physician Assistants or Nurse Practitioners approved by the North Carolina Medical Board to write prescriptions. A Board registration allows a PA or NP to dispense prescriptions that they have written. Such dispensing must occur under the supervision of a licensed consulting pharmacist from a facility holding a valid pharmacy permit. A PA or NP may not dispense drugs under a dispensing physician’s registration.
