Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioners

Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioners

We help psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners start their business, complete any transactions with their business, protect their license, sell their business, hire and fire workers and maintain compliance with board rules, Minnesota law and Federal law.

In Minnesota, a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner has many rules to follow ranging from Minnesota Nursing board propagated rules all the way to Federal Law. Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners are also often in many contracts with vendors, commercial real estate agents, insurance companies, employers, employees, independent contractors, partners and local, state and federal agencies. 

Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners should also take note of the endless amount of administrative rules that can suspend or revoke a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner’s license if violated. These are listed under  Minn Stat 148.261.  This includes language as broad and ambiguous as “Engaging in any unethical conduct, including, but not limited to, conduct likely to deceive, defraud, or harm the public, or demonstrating a willful or careless disregard for the health, welfare, or safety of a patient. Actual injury need not be established under this clause.” 

Often times psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners will partner with other professionals to form a multidisciplinary clinic. The Corporate Practice of Medicine Doctrine, as well as fee splitting laws and the Minnesota Professional Firms Act are all considerations that need to be considered in these arrangements. 

Invest in experienced legal counsel so you can focus on providing quality care (and enjoying quality time for yourself) rather than guessing and worrying about the law.
