Pearls and Pitfalls: The Journey of APRN Entrepreneurs

Nurse Practitioners are experts in clinical care, but most are often novices when it comes to business, marketing, financial management and working outside mainstream healthcare settings. There is little focus on the business side within the curriculum of current nurse practitioner education. However, these skills are essential for nurse practitioners who want to grow, innovate and work in independent practice. Whether you are ready to open your own practice or enhance your current business capabilities and skills, join us for this day-long webinar and learn from Dr. Wendy Wright’s experience building her business over the last 15 years. She will share tips for effective and accurate billing and coding, mistakes to avoid in contract negotiation, and documentation that stands up against malpractice claims, and much more!

The live, virtual event will begin at 8:45 am and will adjourn at 4:45 pm. Within the schedule for the day, we have incorporated 3 fifteen-minute breaks for those watching to stretch, grab a drink, etc., as well as a 45-minute lunch break. During the time set aside for breaks and lunch, Wendy will be monitoring the ZOOM Q&A feature to address your questions. It will be a fun, full day of learning for everyone participating and we hope you will choose to join us!
