NNPEN's 8th Annual Nurse Practitioner Conference

Entrepreneurs Color Outside the Lines

The 2024 NNPEN conference aims to open NP eyes to the possibility that NP transition to growth mode and risk readiness is well underway—despite NP skepticism.   Restlessness with the status quo has produced many “color outside the lines” strategies, and we’ll focus on three:
  1.  “Call me doctor” litigation brought by 3 NPs against the CA Board of Nursing
  2.  A fact check challenge to the AMA’s disturbing put-down of NPs as primary care equals
  3. An academic proposal to move nursing out of the shadows of the bed rate to financial accountability as a free-standing revenue center, be it in a corporate setting or health system or nurse -led clinic.  PS, It doesn’t hurt to hold your attorney close when Coloring Outside the Lines: two of our favorite NP-literate attorneys [hello Dena and Justin] will share their views on how growth uncertainties can be managed.

Box Lunches will encourage maximum time for networking, and networking will continue into two consecutive breakout sessions for in-person attendees to choose from, ranging from Practicing Without Walls to Adding Cash Business to Your Practice.
