Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 4, 2008
Nurse Practitioner Business Owner (NPBO), the leading online community for Nurse Practitioners and Advanced Practice Nurses exploring, starting, and building their own business, congratulates Dr. Scharmaine Lawson-Baker for being named 2008 Nurse Practitioner Entrepreneur of the Year by Advance for Nurse Practitioners.
In March 2005, Dr. Scharmaine Lawson-Baker founded Advanced Clinical Consultants based on a mission to provide a house call to every senior or disabled person in the City of New Orleans who is not able to visit their regular primary care physician. She also founded Geriatric Initiatives, Inc., a non-profit agency formed to raise awareness to the plight of the homebound elderly and disabled of New Orleans who are still struggling to recover from Hurricane KATRINA.
"NPBO is proud to recognize one of our online community members for this outstanding award," said Barbara C. Phillips, NP, and founder of Nurse Practitioner Business Owner. "It is an honor to include Dr. Scharmaine not only as a Panel Expert for NPBO, but also as one of our favorite NP Interview participants. We are looking forward to speaking with her on Sunday, December, 7, as part of our regular NP Interview series," said Ms. Phillips.
"NPBO has helped me improve my practice immensely," says Lawson-Baker. "The practical tools, ready-made checklists, and proven ideas have saved me the time and effort of researching and developing them myself."
