RN(NP)’s Can Prescribe Mifegymiso

Mifegymiso is an antihormonal medication consisting of two medications (mifepristone and misoprostol) that work together to block the effects of progesterone for termination of early pregnancy.

Health Canada recently broadened the interpretation of Mifegymiso prescriber to include prescribing health professional, resulting in Nurse Practitioners having the legal authority to prescribe Mifegymiso within Canada. The Saskatchewan Registered Nurses’ Association (SRNA) has determined that it is within the RN(NP)’s scope of practice whom have the appropriate knowledge, skills and competencies to prescribe Mifegymiso to Saskatchewan patients.
