As a NP, what types of surgical procedures can you do? Also, how do you bill for it, and at what rate?

What type of training is available to become one?

what type of procedures are you referring to? minor surgical procedures such as ingrown nails, I&D, etc OR full blown cases in theater?

Actually whatever is allowed....not sure where to begin my understanding. Are they the same types of procedures that PA's are allowed to do as well?
