payment for hospital privilegesRegister Today!
- by nmcgpnp Jan 15, '04I'm considering a per-diem NP position in a private sector ED. Having spent the past 20 years as a municipal employee, I'm unfamiliar with the $300.00 fee the medical staff office is requesting for practice prerogatives. Is this routine? I work in Southern California. Thanks for your help!
