If the NP is going to be billing under the MD's NPI and the payer is Medicare, Medicaid or any payer that follows CMS "incident to" guidelines, the physician must be in the office. If the NP is billing under their own NPI,"incident to" guidelines do not need to be followed.
I would also look up your State scope of practice for NP's. There are often many rules to follow, such as a collaborative agreement. Make sure you do your research well in advance of the hiring.
