I just had a general question about owning your own practice as a Nurse Practitioner. My father is a Physician with his own family practice. I was wondering, if i were to get my MSN as a Family Nurse Practitioner, would I be able to take over my father's practice? He's planning on retiring and I think it would be great if i could take over the family business.
How exactly does it work? I have read that you need to have a "collaborating" physician with you, so i dont know exactly if you are COMPLETELY independent. We are from florida too, so i was wondering if there were regulations as to practicing in our state. I know some states dont allow you to be independent.
