Controlled Substance Registration Information

Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs)
All APRNs who intend to prescribe controlled substances must obtain a federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) controlled substance registration. APRNs may not prescribe under a collaborating physician registration.
DEA registrations must be completed for each state where the APRN intends to prescribe controlled substances.
Nebraska does not issue a separate state controlled substance registration.
Registration forms and support can be accessed at
