The recently passed Modernization Act in New York (NY) eliminates the mandatory collaborative physician requirement for nurse practitioners (NPs) with 3600 hours of experience. Although NPs must provide referral sources upon request, the new law eliminates the barrier of filing written signed agreements. These changes could facilitate the process for NPs to start their own practice. This article provides some insight into this process from the lens on one who started a primary care FNP practice in Western New York (WNY), including barriers encountered and lessons learned.
