This book is a great way to access state-by-state information related to NP practice. I do recommend that readers not solely rely on its information. They should still contact each state's board of nursing. I found discrepancies between Ms. Buppert's requirements for practice in Ohio and actual law.
Overall, I highly recommend this book to both NP students and clinicians.

I found Carolyn Buppert's second edition of Business Practice and Legal Guide to be very helpful. The additional chapters are useful for my practice and for research on a state wide level. I would recommend this book to nurse practitioners and students of the profession. It is proving to be a valuable resource for improving NP practice in Alabama. Be sure to get the second edition (2003/2004)as the first was published in 1995.

As a grad student interested in starting my own practice upon graduation, I found this book to be useless. It has been reprinted by another publishing company and its original copyright date is 1999. Between then and now - 2004 - a lot of things have changed. Therefore, I would recommend that anyone who requires current information should look elsewhere. This is a very expensive book as is not helpful at all!!!

Not worth the money. The information contained within can be found by doing simple searches on CINHAL and locating scholarly articles. Used this for a class and felt that it was not worth the time or money.

Good, but missing some essentials ... might get diluted with her audience being those who are independent as well as those who work in groups/larger systems. Addressing the comprehensive needs of the truly independent provider, even the solo provider, is lacking. Also, a new version just came out, so maybe some of what this one missed is included. Also, having a single-payer health care system and standardized scopes of practice aligned with the Institute of Medicine's recommendations in their Future of Nursing Report would go a long way toward cutting out about 70% of the administrative/legal/reimbursement red tape and waste that currently exists in the "health*care(?)" system that is anything but provision of services that contribute to individuals health!!! Instead, we keep this dysfunctional system to protect the turf of certain providers and maintain the exorbitant profits of the "health*iinsurance(?)" plans. I think both of these groups are ensuring/insuring is their own continued profits and power!

I had the pleasure of reading this book while finishing my last year in nurse practitioner school.
Ms. Buppert is a master in defining how to negotiate business contracts.
I met the author at a nurse practioner conference in Nashville Tn and she was very down to earth and truly magnificent in her knowledge of laws affecting nurse practioners.
I highly recommend this book.

I used this for my Advanced Professional Practice Management class. It had some good information, however I felt it was geared more towards primary care. I found this to not be as helpful to me as an acute care student.

This book explains how to negotiate salary and wages, something nurse practitioners may not be familiar with. Nurse practitioners need to value their worth and years of experience as a nurse compared to other mid-level practitioners, such as PAs.
