New AGNP with a question...

Can an adult-gero primary care NP work in a plastic surgery office seeing post-op patients?

No, there would be no rounding in the hospital.

No, there would be no stepping in the OR -- strictly in the clinic seeing post-op patients, and doing injectables (this part I know I can for sure do). 

I will also be contacting my BON for clarification. Thanks in advance!

Hey! Fellow AGPCNP here! It sounds appropriate. Post op f/u Is apart of primary care.

Hi! Thank you for your reply… that’s the line of thinking I was going for. I’ve also found a lot of other AGPCNP’s in my area who work in the field, so that helped too. Thank you again!
