Right now, no one knows how many of us Nurse Practitioners are in our own practices and how many NPs want to start their own practices to help meet the needs of the American public.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 31, 2010
Nurse Practitioner Business Owner (NPBO™), the leading online community for Nurse Practitioners in business, is encouraging Nurse Practitioners to participate in the first ever survey for NPs in business. 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.
As many uninsured Americans gain health insurance via the American Health Care Reform, NPs are at the forefront to curb the looming Primary Care shortage. As NPs step up to become practice and business owners, there is a dire need for concrete numbers and statistics to brand this innovative class of primary care providers. This survey will fulfill the need for those numbers by questioning NPs currently in business as well as those who plan to be.
“Right now, no one knows how many of us Nurse Practitioners 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.
