In brief: Yes, with limits...
Nurse practitioners are able to call in (or direct someone to call in) a prescription for a patient.
In many offices, a triage or phone nurse is often directed to call in prescriptions for patients.

In brief: Not prescribe
They may call a script over the phone that a doctor or physician assistant prescribes, but nurses do not have prescription privileges.
At least in ohio they dont.
