re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - guttata
That's exactly what will happen. They'll pay NPs a bit more b/c now the NP won't need the collaborating physican. Whether it's right or wrong, ethically, they will see the ability to make $$....

re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - guttata
Once this bill passes, MDs will be opening up urgent care clinics all over the place. I highly doubt many NPs are going to throw a shingle up and start seeing patients. I think what you will actually see are the business MDs setting up urgent care clinics all over the place and just let the NPs ru...

Non compete clauses are worth about as much as the paper they are written on. You can't stop someone from making a living. The only way they would be enforceable is if there was some sort of trade secret protection involved. ...

re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - guttata
Sure, as long as the medical board puts a NP on the board so their is someone there to have their best interests at heart, just like the MDs on the board have MDs best interest at heart. Why the heck would NPs blindly allow the medical board to determine what is required of them to be qualified to ...

MDs aren't worried about PAs. PAs were created by MDs and fall directly under their thumbs. MDs only worry about the ones who are governed by their own board and decide to evolve as a profession. ...

re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - guttata
I'm not quite sure that letter is totally accurate. Optometry is not governed by the medical board and they can prescribe meds, diagnose, and treat pretty much any condition of the eye that an MD can treat. Yes, I know they can't treat cataracts, retina, etc. So, I guess it depends on what your d...

My wife has been in practice 13 yrs. I guess that comes out to at least 22,000 clinical hours. Would that be enough? By the way, she has no desire to open her own clinic. ...
