    In the OP setting, we currently have 4 NP’s.  One works a a satellite clinic (we have 2 that serve hem/onc) along with an attending.  There are 3 NP’s at our main campus.  One specializes in Solid Tumor, one in hemophilia/bleeding disorders and the other will see pretty much any patient.  The NP that specializes in solid tumor’s will also see most patients if her schedule allows. 
    We do have 3 mornings where we send out patients to a PACU area for procedures (LP/BM) and 2 of the NPs do a majority of those procedures which does take them out of clinic.

    We currently have 1 NP in the inpatient setting.

    I know this has been asked before so if someone can send me a summary I would apprecaite it.  We are restructuring and  wondered how you utilize NPs in the office – are they population specific (leukemia, solid tumor, etc), only see well pts for chemotherapy, how many pts per day, how many independent visits prior to seeing an MD?  Thanks, Laurie
