Hello fellow colleagues,
I am interested to know if anyone has known of Chiropractors ever teaming up with FNP's in family practice style or collaborative practice of any sort (under one roof)? My Chiropractor and I were talking about this recently and I want to know if it seems possible or reasonably possible to any of you for an FNP (possibly with a DNP) to work as a Primary Care Physician and team up with a Chiropractor for a more holistic practice? I graduated recently from Massage Therapy school and am soon to pursue my BSN unto my FNP or DNP. I will possibly also pursue certification in Holistic Nursing at some point if I go that route.
I have considered pursuing my D.O. instead of a MSN or DNP and that brings me to my second question. What would seem more appropriate (and even acceptable in the eyes of those who are pursuing holistic healthcare)? A FNP with holistic training acting a PCP or a D.O. (all considering the proposal of working with a Chiropractor and or other "alternative" health-care providers?
Thank you very much for your feedback,

Yes, that's a good point and I will look into it. It doesn't matter somewhat for me yet because my husband and I are not sure where we are going to settle down yet. But our careers --not the move-- would be a bigger factor in the decision as a whole. So for me I am simply curious to know if it is known whether Chiropractic Doctors work with FNP's and/or D.O.'s and what the general viewpoint on the subject of the partnership itself from those who might be familiar with this type of partnership. If it seems like a promising and potentially rewarding avenue then I would look further into what states support FNP's that are in private practice.
Thank you for your input.
