Registration for Medication Dispensing
In Nevada, physicians may dispense medications as long as they follow all state and federal regulations. They must also complete an Application for Authority to Dispense Drugs from the Nevada Board of Pharmacy and receive a dispensing permit.
The permit is required for legend drugs which are both controlled and non-controlled.
Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners may also dispense but must complete a separate application. Currently, along with the application, there is a $300 fee.
