"As of right now, no one knows how many of us are in our own practices and how many NPs want to start their own practices to help meet the needs of the American public.” said Barbara C. Phillips, NP, and founder of NPBO™.
Aberdeen, WA (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
Nurse Practitioner Business Owner (NPBO™), the leading online community for Nurse Practitioners in business, announces an opportunity for Nurse Practitioners to participate in the first ever survey for NPs in business. According to the Pearson Report, there are now almost 158,000 Nurse Practitioners in the United States, however, the actual number of NPs in their own business is unknown. The purpose of this project is to discover how many NPs own their own business and practices as well as how many are considering joining their ranks.
“Within the next few years, nearly 32 million Americans will gain health insurance. It's a well known fact that there is a health care provider shortage. Nurse Practitioners are, and will continue to help fill that gap. As of right now, no one knows how many of us are in our own practices and how many NPs want to start their own practices to help meet the needs of the American public,” said Barbara C. Phillips, NP, and founder of NPBO™. “We want as many NPs as possible to take the survey, which can be found online at http://www.NPBusinessSurvey.com. The survey should take participants no more than five-seven minutes to complete,” said Ms. Phillips.
All survey participants will have the opportunity to receive the survey results. Ms. Phillips anticipates publishing a report of the survey later in the year.
