Paper Copy Registration Form (if you want to pay via check)
Want to know if your current California nurse-midwife furnishing license includes Schedule II medications? Go to the Department of Consumer Affair's BReEZe site and click on "Verify a License" under the Consumers section on the left. Search by your name or license number, then click on "Nurse Midwife Furnishing" under License Type. If you are licensed to administer Schedule II substances in California, it will say Specialty: Controlled Substances II.
The federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) may verify your furnishing privileges via the BRN's website and can deny you a DEA number if your California furnishing license does not include Schedule II medications. However, even if your DEA registration includes Schedule II medications, you are not allowed to furnish Schedule 2 medications until your California BreEZe registration also specifies Schedule II substances in your furnishing section. Both need to be in place.
