    I'm starting a new medical practice in Illinois. My PAs and NPs will not be prescribing medications. They will be working as independent contractors (yes, this is legal since they are making their own schedules, etc.) So, I'm having all of them sign a Independent Contractor agreement. I'm also having the NPs complete a state-mandated "Collaborative Agreement". Do any PAs know what they completed for their employers? Do RNs need a "Collaborative Agreement" since they are "supervised"?

    Thank you!

    Why will your PA's and NP's not prescribe? What kind of medical practice are you starting? Depending on your type of practice, you may have a hard time getting PA's/NP's to work for you if they cannot prescribe.
