This course is designed to inform the physician and advanced practice provider of many important legal and practical considerations before entering into a supervisory or collaborative relationship.  Included in this course is a review of the requirements and responsibilities for the supervision of and/or collaboration with APPs. There are numerous specialty population focused certifications for APPs, and this course will generally be referring only to the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse or Nurse Practitioner (APRN, NP, Licensed Nurse Practitioner, Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner) and the Physician Assistant (PA). This course does not undertake to outline the specialty-specific roles, rules or regulations of certain credentialed APPs such as orthopedic physician assistants, nurse anesthetists, clinical nurse specialists, or nurse midwives (OPA, CRNA, CNS, CNMW). Physicians and APPs should consult with a healthcare attorney before entering into a supervisory or collaborative arrangement. Additionally, it is recommended that providers consult with any healthcare facilities, hospitals, nursing homes and insurance payers they are credentialed with, as many have additional requirements in bylaws, accreditation agencies or in payer contracts.
