For PBJ, where do we allocate NP hours?
If performing MD delegated duties report Job code 13 (see definitions below)
Per the PBJ manual,
- Job Code 7 Registered Nurse hours include: Those persons licensed to practice as registered nurses in the State where the facility is located. Includes geriatric nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists who primarily perform nursing, not Physician-delegated tasks. Do not include Registered Nurses’ hours reported elsewhere.
- Job code 13 NP includes A registered nurse with specialized graduate education who is licensed by the state to diagnose and treat illness, independently or as part of a healthcare team.
