RALEIGH — For two meetings and a few signatures, Stephenie Brinson pays $24,000 to stay in business each year.

As a nurse practitioner in North Carolina, Brinson must have a supervising physician whose scope of practice encompasses her duties. If she loses the supervising physician, she has 30 days to find a new one, or she must shutter her business and lose everything.
