When accepted by the court, a medical certificate shall be completed by a physician, a certified psychiatric nurse clinical specialist, a licensed psychologist or a nurse practitioner, professionally competent to complete a medical certificate.

Amended effective November 16, 2010.

Reporter's Notes 

(2010) The title and practice were amended to allow a nurse practitioner to complete a Medical Certificate. The requirement that the medical certificate be dated and the examination have taken place within thirty (30) days prior to the entry of the decree is deleted since it is required by G.L. c.190B, 5-306(b)(4) .
