“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” Cicero
This time of year, Thanksgiving in the US, many of us recount all that we are grateful for, myself included. That said, I’d like to thank each individual who is a part of our community. You do amazing work for your patients, your communities and yourselves. It’s not easy and sometimes it’s not fun. But, as you can attest…it’s never boring.
Because our work with patients and others can sometimes be a challenge, I learned long ago when I was involved with an AIDS hospice to keep a gratitude journal. When our journey feels difficult, it’s a blessing to remember all that we are grateful for.
I wish to thank you for being a part of the NPBO community, your kudos and your feedback encouraging all of us to be better at what we do.
However you choose to spend the Thanksgiving holiday – with family and friends, in nature or in service to others, have a blessed holiday.

Every November, we celebrate NP Week. It’s a great time to collectively spread the word that we exist, are available to see patients and that we are just all around fabulous. It’s time to toot your own horn!
AANP has made that easy for all of us. On their website, they have published a 19 page PDF document, the “NPWeek Binder” [click to continue…]
Join me on Sunday November 10, 2013 to kick off NPWeek. This free community wide teleseminar is just for you. I get (literally) hundreds of questions every week about some aspect of business for the healthcare provider. It’s impossible to answer them all on a 1:1 basis. So why not host an event to answer all the questions at one time? You can sign up and submit your questions at www.NPWeek.com.
Remember to send in your questions and mark your calendar for Sunday Nov 10th!
