Hi there! About to finish my program in PMHNP and wondering about physician supervision in California.  The dream is to start my own practice and wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to find a supervising physician?  I read in different threads here some some physicians are willing do supervise for a fee--how does one find them?  Thanks for any tips.

Connections. Most people starting their own practice have worked for employers with physicians and they gain connections that way. There's also a company called Doctors for Providers that claims to match providers.

Can you reach out to your school for a list of doctors/organizations to reach out to?
