I need a collaborative agreement template!!

  1. 0
    Hello everyone-- The practice that I have just joined has not used employment contracts ro collaborative agreements in the past, and I need to build one but I have no idea how. I need a template or some hard factors in which to include. I am a new grad and I want to make sure that all is well for me here and onward.

    Any advice for me?


    Thanks!

    Your state BON may have specific requirements regarding physician-NP collaboration. Therefore, I suggest you check with someone at your state's BON to find out if there are certain elements that need to be included in the document. There are also specific requirements set forth by Medicaid and Medicare and they also need to be included in the document. My state nursing association has a guide for APN's to follow when writing collaborative agreements based on the requirements set forth by the Michigan Public Health Code regarding NP's and how these rules apply to our practice. This guide may not apply to your state's specific requirements. I am posting the link here just as examples: http://www.minurses.org/apn/apn-npfaq.shtml#collab

    I couldn't find a similar link for Connecticut but it looks like the APRN practice act in your state is found here: http://www.ctnurses.org/displaycommo...barticlenbr=12. I would read through these documents and make sure your collaborative agreement document complies with the rules stated in the said link.

    I agree!
    Here is some information you may want to look at from here in Georgia:
    http://medicalboard.georgia.gov/00/a...475486,00.html

    I would be surprised if your program didn't have any examples of collaborative

    agreements...

    I apologize for being so sketchy but the agreement will probably vary widely from state to state, by provider, by situation, etc...
