What are the BEST and WORST States to practice as an NP? - Page 12Register Today!
- Apr 18, '07 by mvanz9999Quote from BAtoCNMFrom what I know, that response is essentially it. The AMA keeps the use of NPs limited, as well as keeping the NP salaries artificially low. That, in itself, is enough to make it undesireable.I'm not the first person to ask this but only one person seems to be offering more detail about why Illinois is such a terrbiel place to be an NP. Several people have mentioned it's among the worst, but only one person has offered her 2 cents (thanks, mamanaynay!). Any body else want to comment? IL is also not ranked well on one of the websites that offers a measure of job conditions for NPs.
Search for posts by traumaRUs. She has some advice on this topic as well.

Hello. We should not be stereotyping. The CDC is in Atlanta, hardly a group of yahoos.

Would be nice to have a resource with side-by-side comparisons of states.
If anybody knows of such a thing, do tell. Matter of fact, I'm going to check my library now. The data probably changes from year to year, though.
- RE: Info about nurse practitioners:
There is a journal with a web site:
On amazon, it looks like books are either reviews for certification exams, or specifics about the practice. Pubmed has an abstract about statistics from the government concerning state regulations, but it's not exactly new.
Each state definitely will have their rules online, but as far as knowing the "real deal" about working state to state, allnurses.com seems like a reliable source, eh?

- May 9, '07 by lblamonsHere is a great reference with each state regarding legisative issues for NPs (includes legal authority, reimbursement, & prescriptive authority)
Philips, S.J. (2006) Eighteenth annual legislative update: A comprehensive look at legislative issues affecting advanced nursing practice. The Nurse Practitioner, 31(1), 6-38.
- May 13, '07 by ProudGayRNQuote from chris_at_lucasThey have a large whiney lobby - look at san fran freeko - the legislature refusing to cooperate with the FEDERAL government regarding illegal aliens, its a disgrace.I wonder why California is waiting until 2008 to require NP's to have a master's degree? Anybody know?
- May 22, '07 by flute421How is Florida? I hear it isn't so good and can't prescribe controlled substances...is that going to change anytime? (I hear there are plans to change that)
- May 22, '07 by sirIHello, flute421,
Read the Pearson Report that core0 provided regarding RX privileges in FL. I don't have firsthand information if this will change or not.
