NP's at Walgreen's, and CVS clinics?
- 0Jan 19, '11 by btlrcthyDoes anyone know what the responsibilities, salary, autonomy, and requirements are to work in the retail pharmacies outpatient clinics? Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.

very limited. My family practice MD hit the roof when they
did not treat a common complaint that his NPs treat routinely.
My sense is that their clinics are covered by one MD who is not
necessarily located in the same state as the clinics.
If you are looking to us all of your skills as an NP you might
be disappointed in the limited role some of these opportunities provide.

Bascially for everything there are guidelines you have to follow very little ability to practice how you would like but have still heard great things.
