Advanced registered nurse practitioners celebrate a victory today.

The Kentucky Senate has voted to let them prescribe controlled substances to patients.

The bill now goes to the house which in the past has supported giving nurse practitioners such prescription-writing authority.

Under the bill, nurse practitioners could sign prescriptions for such powerful painkillers as morphine and oxycontin.
