As I understand it, NPs must work under a collaborative agreement with a physician. I was contacted by an agency that does compensation type evaluations. They said that NPs don't generally need agreements if you're not prescribing, but I should look into it. Anyone have experience with this under Florida laws? It's unclear what the BON defines as "operation", does that mean anything?
From the FL BON website:
"According to Rule 64B9-4.010(1), Florida Administrative Code, An Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner shall only perform medical acts of diagnosis, treatment, and operation pursuant to a protocol between the ARNP and a Florida-licensed medical doctor, osteopathic physician, or dentist.â€"
