Hello, just curious as to any independent NP practices out there. My state is an independent NP state. I am considering it down the road. Are there any NPs that don't do traditional Primary Care? I work in physical medicine and rehabilitation right now. We see a good variety....pain management, DOT physicals, workers comp injuries. I just didn't know if any NPs had tried opening an occupational medicine practice or even pain management as I am very familiar with both. I still need to look into insurances in my area to see if I would even get reimbursed as a independent NP. I am planning on getting my DNP first which will take a couple years. So this is a bit premature, but simply curious as to what ventures everyone is taking. Thank you!
