The Board of Registration in Medicine’s regulation 243 CMR 2:10 provides that a physician may be a supervising physician for any advanced practice nurse engaged in prescriptive practice if he/she has completed training approved by the ACGME or RCPSC in a specialty area appropriately related to the nurse’s area of practice, is Board-certified in a specialty area appropriately related to the nurses area of practice, or has hospital admitting privileges in a specialty area appropriately related to the nurse’s area of practice.  This regulation includes advanced practice nurses who practice pursuant to MGL 112 sec. 80 H.   A physician who is not an anesthesiologist may be a supervising physician for a CRNA as long as he/she complies with the requirements of 243 CMR 2:10.
