    This is what you said.

    "Oh I totally agree! I wouldn't dare think of going independent as a new NP and quite frankly not after multiple years of experience! That would totally be a bad recipe for disaster.

    I meant that as a NP down here in Florida. It's not a crooked shaped state for nothing. I would do it but only of I considered moving out of Florida. I would also have to trust a good mentor to guide me a little in the beginning but after I get a set if new wings anything is possible. My previous post was a misunderstanding on my part. I'm simply saying that I would want to practice independently but not as a new grad in Florida or even with experience in Florida. It's bad for us down here period.

    In other words, you aren't saying that you or experienced NPs are incompetent to provide care independently, just that with the regulations in florida you wouldn't want to try to do it.

    Exactly. I would have to fight like a gladiator but I am 100% all for independent practice and Florida needs to totally step up their game.

    If you are a California NP and would like to say that you actually did something to ensure of SB 491 passing, send me a PM. I have some thoughts.

    I am amazed and happily admit that I was wrong! It isn't completely there yet, but the California Senate passed SB491 today! The bill will now go to the Assembly. Please contact Sen Hernandez, who sponsored the bill and thank him....ASK that he PLEASE not amend the bill as he is thinking of doing (to require the NP to be on board with an HMO, or other practice organization)! The bill is great as is! We do not want a new barrier to practice to replace an old one!
