  Section  1.  Subdivision  3  of  section 6902 of the education law, as
added by chapter 257 of the laws of 1988, is amended to read as follows:
  3. (a) The practice of registered  professional  nursing  by  a  nurse
practitioner,  certified  under section six thousand nine hundred ten of
this article, may include the diagnosis of illness and  physical  condi-
tions  and the performance of therapeutic and corrective measures within
a specialty area of practice[, in collaboration with a  licensed  physi-
cian  qualified  to collaborate in the specialty involved, provided such
services are performed in accordance with a written  practice  agreement
and  written  practice  protocols.  The written practice agreement shall
include explicit provisions  for  the  resolution  of  any  disagreement
between the collaborating physician and the nurse practitioner regarding
a  matter of diagnosis or treatment that is within the scope of practice
of both. To the extent the practice agreement does not so provide,  then
the collaborating physician's diagnosis or treatment shall prevail].
  (b)  Prescriptions  for  drugs,  devices  and immunizing agents may be
issued by a nurse practitioner, under this subdivision and  section  six
thousand nine hundred ten of this article[, in accordance with the prac-
tice  agreement  and  practice  protocols]. The nurse practitioner shall
obtain a certificate from the department upon successfully completing  a
program  including  an appropriate pharmacology component, or its equiv-
alent, as  established  by  the  commissioner's  regulations,  prior  to
prescribing under this subdivision. The certificate issued under section
