Support for Running a Practice and Managing a Business
With everything else stripped away, impacting the health of your patients and the health of your community is fundamentally dependent on the ability of your practice to pay the bills and keep its doors open. There is no health care if there are no health providers or health care locations. The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) offers a range of tools to support your practice, from quality improvement to reimbursement to business management.
“Not only nurse practitioners [NPs] who want to start a practice, but NPs who are employed also need to understand the business of health care and how that impacts the work that they do. If an NP really understands the business of health care — the economics of health care — they really can make a bigger impact on patient care.”

Business Resources for NPs
