Episode #41 Planning for your Business Success
Not many people want to talk about business planning, and yet it's crucial! We already know the majority of businesses fail. A business plan, however, can give you a leg up and help put you on the path of business success.

#40 Choosing and EHR for your Practice
Choosing which EHR to invest in is a big decision.
It cost money in terms of dollars as well as the time it takes to master the software. It can affect your practice and your workload. And if you don’t like the one you started with, it’s not exactly a walk in the park to switch to another one.
In this episode of the NP Business Matters podcast, I talk about the criteria the Institute of Medicine published for EHRs. In addition, I talk about CMS and the 21st Century Cures Act Final Rules.
Plus we'll discuss how you can create your own criteria when choosing the best EHR for your practice.
You'll find the show notes and lists on the show notes.

Episode 38 Are you making these common mistakes?
Nurse Practitioners are pretty excited at the aspect of having their own practice in that’s true more so today than ever before especially since more states are opening up to full practice authority.
Sometimes what happens though, Is in our excitement we tend to rush into things. And this is where we run into trouble. So on today’s podcast I’d like to go over some of the most common mistakes that I see with clinicians starting up their own practice.
Mistakes to Avoid
Unseasoned clinicians starting a practice.Not having a clear picture of what you are doing, what you are offering.Ignoring both practice and business rules and regulations.Failure to fully understand scope of practice.Misinformation about FPA and practicing across state lines.Collaboration – understanding what it is and why as well as the rules in your state. Also, not having a written agreement and more than one CP, is a big mistakes.Thinking you don’t need a business plan.Financial illiteracy – not understanding the finances – cost, resources, revenues, statements and more.Waiting to market the practice. Not starting your credentialing early enough Find the show notes at https://npbusiness.org/are-you-making-these-common-mistakes/
Wow! Episode 28 with Dr. Hardy was everything I needed to hear going into this work week. I am not an NP, but I do work in healthcare as an MLS, (ASCP). Dr. Hardy’s professional and personal experiences resonated with me as woman trying to elevate herself in the medical field, while balancing everyday life. Thank you for such an incredible interview!
Episode 33: Hard to listen to
Wow. I have to assume this upload was a mistake. This episode was littered with awkward pauses, restarts, etc. Overall the podcast isn’t too bad, could do without the cheesy light jazz intro music, but otherwise appreciate the content and discussion usually.
Excited for this needed NP podcast!
I am so excited to be listening in to every episode! Just started my own practice and looking forward to more learning and inspiration! Thanks for all you do!
