Hi all,

I am a nurse practitioner currently practicing in surgical oncology. I work with 4 surgeons and 1 APP. I am curious about the working relationship NP’s have with surgeons, and specifically how NP’s work to bring their value to the practice. Do you work independently? Work with one specific surgeon? Work with all of them? See post-op patients? Work up surgical patients? Combination of all these things?

I have a good working relationship with both of the surgeons in my group. I work with both evenly. I am in clinic, independently, every other week. On the other weeks, I am in the hospital rounding on inpatients, doing consults, admissions, discharges, SOAPs and also scrubbing all of the OR cases that week.
