    Hi Sonia,

    Congratulations on your California practice!

    The most important thing you can do is to research the area you are going into and look carefully at the SOP for Florida. It can be done, you just need to be aware of the challenges NPs in Florida have.

    Best wishes!

    I am looking into starting my own practice. I am very nervous about doing this there is so much to know. My speciality is sleep disorders and pulmonary. I dont see any NPs out there that are sleepNPs. I am living in Montana and looking into moving to a rural area. Are there any incentives for us to start up a practice in this type of area? Your site is great and has alot of good information.
    Thanks Mary

    Hello,
    I have home health service company incorporated in the state of Texas but never start the business. Now that I am FNP-BC, is it possible to use the same company to start housecall business? Also, I need information on how to get it start. Open to any suggestions.

    You might be able to, depending on the rules in your state, you’ll need to check with whoever controls corporations in your state in order to change any names.

    As far as starting a practice, regardless of what you are doing there are 7 broad steps to doing so. You’ll find more info on this video: http://npbusiness.org/startup-video/.

    The NPs I work with in Texas tell me one of their biggest challenges is finding and keep a collaborating physician, so you’ll want to make sure you have one or even two firmly in place.

    I am NP and thinking of buying a practice in California, which is running for last 20 years.
    Two questions:
    1. Do I need a physician to be co owner of the practice
    2. Which insurances will pay me 100% against my billing and which will not.

    Regards,
    Shireen

    Shireen,

    In California, if you want to own a “medical corporation”, you will have to have a physician own the business @ 51%. However, if you create a “nursing corporation” you can own it. Of course, you still need a collaborating physician in CA.

    There is no way for me to know which insurance companies will pay you what. They are different from company to company and location to location.

    Best,

    Barbara

    Hello, how does one establish a nursing corporation? What distinguishes a nursing corporation from a medical corporation?

    Just a couple of questions of the many I will have.

    Hi. I am employed at a weight loss franchise in Tennessee. Since our clientele pay out of pocket for services rendered, is a face-to-face encounter required for prescriptions to be written for noncontrolled medications? My “boss” wants my contact to be via phone, and their medication will be sent to their home, bypassing the need for a brick-and-mortar business, improving his profit margin. Kosher? Have spent a great deal of time on this with no answer by way of my research. Thanks-Pam Hirst

    Hi Pam,

    Prescribing medication to patients you have not seen face to face @ least once and then periodically is not, IMHO, a very safe practice.

    If your employer wants to avoid the brick-and-mortar storefront, then what about visits to the person at home/work in order to do a physical evaluation first?

    If there was a problem caused by medication you prescribed and you had not seen the patient, guess who would be held liable?

    I’m a PNP and would love to be added to your blog list! I write mainly about experiences in my day to day life in practice, but do hit on issues important to NPs. I tend to take an irreverent view of medicine, but I do care deeply about my patients! My sense of humor helps me keep my stress level down.

  29. Amy Pharr, FNP-C, FPMHNP-C

    I am wanting to start a business from home (to keep overhead low) performing nurse practitioner home health and hospice here in NC. I have a supervising M.D., a nurse, a biller and a home health aide lined up . Does anyone have any information on what is required to get this started? I am already panelled with insurance companies — just need to switch them over to my LLC. Do patients have to be referred to me or can I market for and establish patient cases based on patient self referral?

    Amy, sounds like you are off to a good start.
    Be sure you have a NPI number and tax ID number for your LLC. Some insurance (Medicare for sure) will require to reapply. Others will just change the tax ID number.

    Unless you want to be a referral only business, go ahead an market to your ideal patients….and let other providers know you are there to help and ask for referrals.

    Best wishes!

    I have been a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner for over twenty years. I first started my Women’s Health practice in Harlem NY in 2005. My practice is integrative and focuses on self care, health education, health advocacy and holistic therapies. My practice was designed for those experiencing disparities in todays health care system. One of my favorite sayings is by an English physician, ” The basics of Medicine is sympathy and the desire to help others, and whatever is done with this end must be called medicine”, Frank Payne (1840-1910) .

    Hi Barbara,
    I am an FNP-C in California. I am extremely interested in opening my own wellness practice, but don’t want to have a physician own the majority. I know I will need a collaborating physician. Any tips and advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Brittany
