Setting the Stage for a National Model of Sustainable NP-led Care

Recognizing that approximately 30,000 NP students graduate annually, they must be ready to not only hit the ground running clinically, but to also develop a clear understanding of sustainable practice development and management. It is estimated that by 2030, two-thirds of primary care in the U.S. will be provided by nurse practitioners. These modules provide an opportunity to learn about an Integrated Model of Sustainable and Innovative (IMSI) NP-Led Care including ways to build a relationship-based practice, long-term community and business partnerships and to develop a diverse financial portfolio for accessible, equitable, patient-and family-centered, cost-effective care. Participants will be introduced to the re-aim framework for planning and ongoing evaluation. Be a part of this inaugural NAPNAP team as NPs work to control our professional future while developing innovative models of healthcare delivery. These modules are supported by the NAPNAP Foundation and a grant from the Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation.
