My family and I will be moving to Florida in the next couple of months since my husband was admitted into CRNA school. I am currently practicing as APNP in wisconsin and am having a hard time with the Florida license. Its seems intense. Where do you get fingerprinting done if you dont want to pay $300 dollars and are not in florida? What is average pay for APNP in Florida? Any advice?
Quote from AndersRN
On the contrary, I believe FL is the best place for APN to work. The original intent of APN was to be physicians extender. APN training is inadequate; therefore, close supervision is needed as way to prevent them from harming patients... That supposedly 'supervision' is still very lax in FL.
I live in a state with 100% independence for NPs (WA) and is considered, along with Oregon, one of the best places to practice.
I don't hear of any massive malpractice suits or any news reports of renegade and poorly trained NPs harming patients. My hospital frequently uses NP/CRNAs and the physician-led groups are clamoring for more to help in specialty and hospitalist groups.
The SDN dogma and rhetoric is going to your head. SDN isn't real life.
