National Nurse Practitioner Entrepreneur Network (NNPEN)
Have you thought about starting your own healthcare business but didn’t know how? NNPEN is your “go to” resource. We’re a network of Nurse Practitioners (NPs) started by NPs to accelerate the number and rate of NPs becoming owners of sustainable businesses. Our offerings are motivated by a single question: To preserve the benefits of nurse-led care, the number of nurse-led start-ups must grow substantially and operate sustainably. HOW WILL THAT HAPPEN?
Welcome to our new website! Take a look around. We hope you enjoy the improved layout and functionality. With this new website, we now have a discussion forum for NNPEN members. The forum can be found under the Resources menu and is only visible to signed-in members. Be sure to subscribe to the forum so that you receive email updates when topics are posted. If you have a question or discussion item, feel free to post and start interacting with your fellow members!

December 9, 2019: Executive Order Addressing Changes to Medicare
President Trump signed an executive order on October 3, 2019 addressing changes to Medicare. Pay special attention to section 5. In summary, it states all clinicians practice to the highest level of their education and training which equates to FPA. Also, it states payment will be based upon the service provided not the provider of the service. This affects payment. So what does this mean? It has one year to be implemented so stay tuned.
December 4, 2019: NP Practice Owners - We Need YOU!
NNPEN is collaborating with healthcare researchers at Boston College School of Nursing and Brandeis University to discover the incidence of value-based payment arrangements (VBP) offered by payers in your market. From our initial solicitation of practice owners, we have a 5% response rate. We can do better!! If you are a nurse practitioner (NP) private practice owner willing to participate in a 10-question VBP survey, we need you! Even if you feel you have no experience with value-based payment to report, your response will help us establish a VBP baseline. TOGETHER WE SKATE TO WHERE THE PUCK IS GOING TO BE! Complete the Survey.
Our monthly meetings, called Office Ours, are accessible via teleconference and webinar. Each month we share critical information and updates pertinent to NP owned businesses. Office Ours are held the third Tuesday of every month from 8:30 PM-9:30 PM EST.
