December 4, 2019: NP Practice Owners - We Need YOU!

NNPEN is collaborating with healthcare researchers at Boston College School of Nursing and Brandeis University to discover the incidence of value-based payment arrangements (VBP) offered by payers in your market. From our initial solicitation of practice owners, we have a 5% response rate. We can do better!! If you are a nurse practitioner (NP) private practice owner willing to participate in a 10-question VBP survey, we need you! Even if you feel you have no experience with value-based payment to report, your response will help us establish a VBP baseline. TOGETHER WE SKATE TO WHERE THE PUCK IS GOING TO BE! Complete the Survey.


NNPEN depends on its committed supporters and members to deliver services.  Please be one!
