(a) A practitioner may order official prescription forms from the board only if the practitioner is registered by the DEA to prescribe a Schedule II controlled substance.

(c) This subsection applies only to an institutional practitioner who is employed by a hospital or other training institution. An institutional practitioner authorized by a hospital or institution to prescribe a Schedule II controlled substance under the DEA registration of the hospital or institution may order official prescription forms under this section if:

  (1) the practitioner prescribes a controlled substance in the usual course of the practitioner's training, teaching program, or employment at the hospital or institution;

  (2) the appropriate state health regulatory agency has assigned an institutional permit or similar number to the practitioner; and

  (3) the hospital or institution:

    (A) maintains a current list of each institutional practitioner and each assigned institutional permit number; and

    (B) makes the list available to another registrant or a member of a state health regulatory or law enforcement agency for the purpose of verifying the authority of the practitioner to prescribe the substance.

(d) An advanced practice registered nurse or physician assistant operating under a prescriptive authority agreement pursuant to Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 157 may order official prescription forms under this section if authority to prescribe has been delegated by a physician. Upon withdrawal of the delegating physician's authority such forms are void and must be returned to the board.
