FNP making the move to Florida; need advise

Hello everyone!

I am an FNP with 1 year of family practice/urgent care experience in addition to 16 years of ICU and ER experience as an RN. I am strongly considering a move to Florida to be closer to the grandbabies and am needing a better insight on the realities of the restricted Florida NP license. I currently practice in Arizona which allows NPs to work to the fullest level of their license, but understand Florida requires a collaborative physician agreement. Is it common for a physician led practice to charge you as the FNP for this agreement or is there typically only a charge if you own your own FNP practice?

 

Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you in advance,
