  1. NPs going into business…need an array of services available…such as attorneys who are familiar with NP practice acts in each state, insurance companies familiar with NP scope of practice, more business classes. Information on contract language when applying for positions…more options available in the hiring process especially in this day and age of reimbursement …percentages are a far better income possibility.

  2. I really enjoy this site, it is very informative and supportive. I also use Office Ally, I find it to be a good fit for my practice at this time and the price is great. I am going to check out the esurg site and see what they have to offer. Please keep up the good work and I will send resources as I find them.

  3. Can others share the difference between what Office Ally would provide compared to Medisoft? If you have OfficeAlly, do you not use a biller? I have contracted with a biller who I really like, we have just not gotten started yet. Thanks, and again, this site is so supportive for me. Carla Anderson

  4. Under Continuing Education Resources- I find to be excellent. They often have articles that are worth 2-4 contact hours instead of the usual 1, and you get a great certificate printed out immediately. The website has a tracker that keeps track of your hours and most of them are ANCC accredited.

  5. I also love E-Surg, and they were very quick to set up an account and line of credit for me.

    Another site I would like posted as a resource is I was able to order some security prescriptions very easily, and so in addition to using the regular ones off of the emr, it is good to have the special security ones for class 2 drugs. They cannot be copied, and the pharmacists can check for fraud easily with a special light.

    Another Medical supply order site is called Every site has different things, but they have great table paper in colors, and sundry jars, and just some great odds and ends.

  6. I don’t know if this would be the correct category for this but AT&T sent me an invitation to be on a wecast entite “The Girls Guide To Building A Million Dollar Business” The person who will be giving the presentation is Susan Solovic. It looks as if she has a background in journalism and the media… The one thing that attracted me to her website is the fact that most of us are women and I am not trying to leave males out but there are a lot of resources for women who own their own business (organizations etc) at the bottom of her webpage… and continous feeds on what is going on in the business world…. I just thought it could be another resource for all of us… is the name of the website.
