Are CRNA’s authorized to practice independent of physician supervision and delegation?
No, neither the Medical Practice Act nor the Nursing Practice Act authorize independent practice by a CRNA. Additionally, Texas Attorney General Opinion No. KP-0266 found “A certified registered nurse anesthetist does not possess independent authority to administer anesthesia without delegation by a physician.” (Page 5). Since the selection and administration of anesthesia is a medical act, CRNAs must be properly delegated this act by a physician. A CRNA who administers anesthesia without proper delegation from a physician would be liable for the unlicensed practice of medicine.
Do I have to let the Medical Board know about my delegates/supervising physicians?
Yes, if you are a physician or a physician assistant.
Physicians are required to register all PAs and APRNs that they supervise prior to the delegates beginning to work for them. If there is a change to the scope of the delegation, physicians must notify the Board within 30 days of this change.
PAs are likewise required to register their supervising physicians with the Board prior to beginning to practice under the employment or prescriptive authority agreement. They are also required to notify the Board within 30 days of any change to the scope of the delegation.
APRNs should look to guidance provided by the Texas Board of Nursing for how to register their delegating physicians, as the Medical Board does not have licensing authority for nurses.

Are there any additional requirements that I need to complete before I request to return my retired physician license to an active status?
To return to practice from retired status, a physician must obtain approval of the Board after submitting a written request. Please contact the Registration department for information on the approval procedure.
If the request is granted, it may be granted without conditions or subject to such conditions which the board determines are necessary to adequately protect the public. Requests are reviewed on a case by case basis.
Below are some examples of conditions that may be required (alone or in combination) to return a retired license to an active status:
limitation of the practice of the requestor to specified activities of medicine and/or exclusion of specified activities of medicine;
passage of the Special Purpose Examination (SPEX);
remedial education, including but not limited to a mini-residency, fellowship or other structured program;
passage of the Medical Jurisprudence Examination; and/or
such other remedial or restrictive conditions or requirements which, in the discretion of the board, are necessary to ensure protection of the public and minimal competency of the applicant to safely practice medicine.
