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?
