A resident is a licensed physician who is still continuing postgraduate training.
An NP student is NOT yet licensed to practice independently of a physician.
Definitely NOT the same thing as a resident.
Your state licensing board may be able to give you additional guidance.
Now, to further complicate matters ... we sometimes have a licensed NP who is getting ADDITIONAL specialty training ... that person IS billable EXCEPT for procedures/services that are part of his/her advanced training. (More akin to our fellows than to students.) But I don't think that's the scenario you are dsecribing.
Hope that helps.
