I am thrilled to announce that NPBusiness has been named one of 5 of the Best Nurse Practitioner Blogs. Here is what was written:
The Nurse Practitioner Business Owners (NPBO) blog is a dedicated resource for NPs who want to go beyond practicing medicine and create a business related to the field. The NPBO houses a number of useful articles for NPs who are exploring, starting, or building their own business. From productivity tips to legislative updates, the NPBO empowers NPs to carve out a piece of the healthcare pie for themselves, and that’s what makes it one of Barton’s Best!
“The NP Business blog was started to answer the many questions I was receiving about how to start a business and a practice by both PAs and NPs. I’m thrilled there is now more interest than ever from NPs and PAs who are thinking about starting a business, are in the startup phase, or are business owners already and want to continue learning, improving, and growing.”
Congratulations to my friends and colleagues. You can read the entire article about all the winners @ The Barton Blog.
Congrats Barbara! You are one of my heroes!
Awwww, thanks Jennifer! I’m sorry we did not get to meet in Florida for this years conference. Hopefully you’ll make it out to Las Vegas for next years conference. In the meantime, if I make it to the south again, I’ll let you know.
Hello, I work with an NP who is looking to open a house call practice under the supervision of an MD in CA. They are looking to perform house calls to their patients with wound care needs and occasional IV infusions. Besides a medicare certification, what all is needed to initiate this business venture? Who else might I be able to contact for step by step guidelines on how to start this business?
Hello Ethan, the first thing that needs to be done is plan it out. This is often missing. Can you make this a viable business on paper? It will take some research to understand your patients, your market area, reimbursements, cost etc. Secondly, it’s important to understand the nuances of CA law when it comes to NP owned practices.
You can certainly look to CA attorneys who are versed in NPs and business to help navigate the legal aspect of this. You may also want to understand more on the business end of this. Many CA NPs have taken our startup course. There is more information about that here: https://www.clinicianbusinessinstitute.com/piab
