A Message From the Entrepreneur SIG Co-chairs

Lynn Rapsilber, DNP, ANP-BC, APRN, FAANP

With excitement, enthusiasm, and bestowed privilege, I begin my service as co-chair of the Entrepreneur SPG.

A little about me…. I currently practice as a NP in GI. I own NP Business Consultants, LLC educating NPs to the nuances of documentation, coding, and billing. I am CEO/co-founder of the National Nurse Practitioner Entrepreneur Network (NNPEN) founded by NPs to build and sustain NP led businesses.

I have been an active participant on this site and am excited by the number of NPs considering practice/business ownership. NP education is lacking in business brain development. It is my hope this site will provide a forum for thoughtful, supportive discussion of issues affecting the NPE. Many thanks to all who are already participating in the Entrepreneur SPG. I am extending an open invitation for all who are contemplating, in the planning phase, newly opened, experiencing growing pains or seasoned NPEs to join in the discussion.

Stephen Roller, FNP, FAANP

I believe that to see the future of our profession become what we know it can be, we must actively engaged each other to stay sharp. The SIGs allow you to do that and I encourage every AANP member to find their SIG and get involved.
