This is what happens when a nursing board tries to discipline NP's. These nurses on the board does not even have a single experience prescribing a simple Zpak, yet they try to determine how narcotics should be prescribed appropriately.

While that's an appropriate theoretical concern, I'm not sure it applies in this case.  A quick Google search finds a LinkedIn for Lee Ann Stearns, most likely the one mentioned in the aritcle: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lee-ann-stearnes-79b81831/

She's a 2009 MSN graduate practicing in emergency medicine, with a background in family medicine as an RN. She should know better.

The American Pain Society, whose journal she's accused of relying on inappropriately, has been called an Astroturfing organization: https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/addiction-corporate-morality-crisis-171029102559319.html (yeah, that's not a great source for the allegation)

It is quite sad to see that they don't know what they really dont know.

Um, a simple search of the Tennessee Board of Nursing demonstrates that the members of the Board include both RNs and APRNs.
