    Why would you think that practicing without protocols is "practicing medicine without a license"?I practice independently and even if a site had "protocols", there is nothing illegal about not following them.

    Which is why I said the APN must be "adventurous". Read that, "highly structured" and able/willing to follow rote protocols. Stepping out of said protocols is "practicing medicine w/o a license".

    Also these clinics only treat very basic things. I called once to see if i could get some prednisone and inhaler for my asthma and they are not allowed to treat that.
    It is basically very low skill use.
    I think it is a waste of our skills as NPs and would be afraid I would lose skills if I only worked in such a clinic.
    a True urgent care is much better use of our brains and education.

    $50ish an hour is typical $3 more for weekends, and a CVS gift card as an incentive...and as far as the protocols, one of my pt's said, hey you read the questions and click the answer and the computer tells you what to do...yes sadly thats what it felt like too and that was my last week at MC

    The market has found a way to prey on the intermediate care provider's interest in autonomy. An MD or DO would be prohibitively expensive and cut into their profit margin so they try to figure out a way to legally use the NP or PA but still cover their own a**e* in case something goes wrong. As long as intermediate provivers consent to their retail rules, they'll keep trying. I just read a survey that talked about the NPs having to do all their own paperwork and clean the clinic. Please! Retail is about profit, not about good medicine. I hope every provider involved refuses to be treated this way or practice medicine this way. The clinics are a good idea but the way they're being implemented needs to be "nipped in the bud, Andy; nip it in the bud" (Barney Fife, 1960-something).

    Please enlighten us as to what an "intermediate care provider" is?
    I am certainly not an "intermediate care provider".

    In regards to some of the comments that Retail clinics are bad medicine and a waste of education for an NP I have to disagree. I'm a new grad and its seems like a safe environment to learn basic, common illnesses that happen commonly. If the treatment is evidenced-based and the NP is the one diagnosing and determing what treatment is appropriate, whats wrong with that?
    My plan, if I choose this path, is to get my feet wet, enjoy my small children and be close to home while getting paid well ($50-60/hr in my area) and then if i so choose, move on as an experienced NP..

    There is nothing wrong with choosing a job whose location and hours works best for your family. Personally I don't need an amazing job in the CVICU or at a high volume clinic where I am forced to see 38 patients per day.

    I would also highly encourage you in your job search to take a few days every week to get dressed up, print off some resumes and drop by the smaller, privately owned physician offices. Sell yourself as someone who has a great set of skills, is eager to be with a smaller practice and always eager to learn. You might very well be surprised that there is a doc who was thinking he might be interested in a part-time NP but he is so overwhelmed running his practice that he/she hasn't had the time to make a want or whatever.

    "Intermediate care provider" is what the medical biz considers PAs and NPs. Their term, not mine.

    Don't use it. Correct it every time someone uses it. Our NP organizations came out long ago against the terms.
    We provide the SAME level of care as physicians. We are JUDGED at the SAME EXACT level of care as physicians.
