Dear Nurse Practitioner,

Just imagine...

How would your life be if you owned your own practice?

Just think, you’d decide how many patients you’d see each day and how much time you’d spend with them.

You’d decide the days you’re in your office, and you alone would decide the hours you’d work each day.

But most importantly…

You could finally give your patients the care they deserve.

Because now you’d be 100% free to give them the kind of care you were educated to provide, without unnecessary limitations or restrictions.

Can you see yourself in your own practice, enjoying your work?

Can you see yourself enjoying a level of freedom that’s only possible when you’re in your own practice?

 

Hi, I’m Barbara C. Phillips, MN, GNP, FNP-BC, FAANP

Like you, I’m a Nurse Practitioner. I’ve worked in critical care, primary care, specialty care, and more...

I own my own clinical and non-clinical businesses. And over the years I've done a lot, and I've seen a lot.

A little over ten years ago, a set of circumstances led me to the decision to start my own practice.

Thinking back, I have to admit I was excited and scared all at the same time.

But one day, I’d come to realize I just couldn't stay where I was anymore!

All my attempts to change how I worked in this office fell on deaf ears; they were getting blocked.

I was tired of working for someone who didn’t have my or my patients' best interest at heart. And it bothered me to see so many patients going without the care they so desperately needed.

I knew I could do better, far better that this!

That’s when I got busy. I was determined to start my own practice just as soon as possible.

But to my surprise, I kept running into one roadblock after another.

I was trying to figure out:

  • What’s the first step I need to take?
  • How much is it going to cost me?
  • Where do I find the money?
  • How does the billing work?
  • Should I outsource the billing or keep it in-house?
  • What about hiring staff? What should I look for?
  • How much should I charge?
  • Do I need a permit or license to get started?
  • What’s a business structure and do I need one?

These are just some of the questions I needed to find answers for. And I needed to find them fast...

About the only thing I did know was that I didn’t need a collaborator in Washington State.

  

And That’s When It Hit Me!

For the first time, I realized this…

My education had provided me with excellent clinical training, but it had done NOTHING to prepare me for starting my own practice!

I was up to me to figure it out!

Now, don’t get me wrong…

I’m not complaining.

Once I realized that it was up to me to find the answers, I flew into search mode.

I went online. I checked Google in hopes of finding some answers… but no luck. There was NOTHING for Nurse Practitioners!

Next, I visited the forums. I asked questions… but again, nothing.

Well, let me take that back…

While I didn’t get answers to my questions, I had plenty of questions coming my way.

To my surprise, other NPs were facing the same hurdles. They were asking the same questions I was asking.

So I started to share whatever answers I found with my fellow NPs.

And this is how it all started…

These were the beginnings of what years later became my formal system for starting a practice.

Today we call it the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0. 

 

Looking Back…

Needless to say, I made plenty mistakes when I first got started (and then some).

Looking back, I know this. If I had had some help from the very start, things would have been much easier for me. I would have been able to speed up the process and start my practice much faster; not to mention that I would have saved myself a lot of money.

It took me years to develop the insights and strategies I’m sharing in the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0. Now anyone can start a practice by simply following my proven system.

By now, many Nurse Practitioners have gone through the program, implemented the system, and started their practice.

Here is what two of them have said about the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0.

 

"You are such an inspiration to all of us out there forging a path for ourselves. In so many ways I feel like a pioneer. Having your websites and Facebook pages has been INVALUABLE to me. I don't feel so alone."

Sonia Smith, MN, PNP/CNS
Owner: Emerald Coast Pediatric Sleep Consultants

"A huge thank you to Barbara C. Phillips for without her NPBO Startup Kit I never would have made it to where I am today! "

Paula Bohn Langeloh, NP
Owner of Langeloh Family Healthcare

Our program is a proven blueprint designed to help clinicians like you get started in their own practice. I’ve been teaching it for many years, keeping it current and up-to-date.


 

So now let me introduce you to the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0. Let me walk you through the program so you can see how it can benefit you when you start your practice.

But before I get to all the details, let me be completely upfront with you.

Our program is a proven blueprint, teaching you everything you need to know.

The program will work for you, but only as long as you do the work and implement what you’ll learn.

So if you’re prepared and willing to do what it takes…

 

Here’s What’s Included With The Program

The NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0 is a 100% digital program, delivered over a total of eight modules.

Once you place your order and complete the checkout process, you have immediate access to everything. You get instant access to all the lessons, worksheets, mind-maps, PDFs, and more.

Here’s a detailed breakdown of what’s included and covered in each of the eight modules.

 

Introductory Module...

The first module equips you with the right mindset. It will set you up for success from the get-go.

I want you to be clear on where you want to go with your practice; why and what you want to create. Hence you begin your journey by looking down the road, toward your future.

Because I want to set you up for success, we tackle the sensitive topic of Healthcare & Business; two words often thought to be mutually exclusive. But as you will see, that’s not the case at all.

We’ll spend time discussing the ethics of money, business & healthcare, something most clinicians still struggle with.

 

Module 1 - The "PPMF Analysis."

This module introduces the “PPMF Analysis.” It’s a unique and fundamental approach to getting started in business.

The PPMF Analysis is a framework I developed, encompassing the areas of personal, professional, financial and market.

You’ll be asking some questions of yourself and work on finding the answers that are right for you. You’ll also be reflecting on your personal reasons for wanting to start a practice.

The insights gained from going through the PPFM Analysis provide you with clarity, certainty, and focus before starting your practice.

Completing this process gives you the foundational piece you need before moving forward with anything else. It also helps you get started with creating your business plan.

 

Module 2 - "Creating Your Business."

You’ll start your business by selecting the best legal structure for your particular situation. Choosing the right legal structure not only establishes your business but also provides protection for you and your business.

I'll show you how to find any regulations that might get in your way, and where to turn to obtain the appropriate licenses and permits.

Next is building your team of professionals.  Business is rarely done by oneself, and it helps to have experts in other fields you can turn to for advice.

If you live in a state requiring collaboration, then this section is a MUST for you.

You’ll discover how to find the right person for you. You’ll learn how to start working with them and what types of agreements you need. You’ll also find out how to protect yourself and your practice.

 

Module 3 - "Getting Paid."

An all-important topic, since you don’t want to work for free!

We’ll look at various revenue models you can utilize in your practice and how you'll get paid.

Our discussion includes information on both, insurance and direct pay practices. We’ll talk about the all-important billing process.

Our most recent update to the course includes an additional module on payment reform, specifically MACRA. The module discusses quality indicators, where to find them and how to report them.

We’ll discuss how to set up your billing and which billing options you may want to consider.

Should you go with in-house billing or would it be better to outsource? What specifically should you be looking for?

We’ll talk about how to handle front desk collections.

We’ll discuss your back office, so you’ll have a collections process in place when someone does not pay.

We’ll cover how to set your fees so that they’ll be fair and legal, yet still benefit you.

Discover and learn how to bill Medicare, Medicaid, commercial payers, and self-pay without violating existing laws.

Closely connected to your fees and the billing process are documentation and coding.

You know as well as I do that your documentation must justify the level of service you are billing. If not, you’re asking for trouble, potentially setting yourself up for health care fraud.

Two additional areas closely connected are insurance and credentialing. While credentialing may sound scary now, you’ll find out that it’s not that bad after all.

 

Module 4 - "Equipment, Tools & Technology."

No matter what type of practice you’re going to set up, you will need equipment, tools, and technology in your office.

We’ll talk about different types of practices and what their space and equipment needs might be.

Since technology is an integral part of practicing we’ll devote time to EMRs, incentive programs and more.

This module also introduces the benefits of purchasing used vs. new. We’ll talk about how you can go about finding quality used equipment for your new office.

 

Module 5 - "Clinical Practice Management."

No, we’re not going to talk about clinical matters here. No need to, you ARE already the expert clinician.

However, we will talk about the backend of your office. We’ll look at how your patients move through your clinic and what systems you should have in place.

We'll discuss management, monitoring, policies and procedures for everyday clinical activities:

  • How to facilitate labs and medication refills.
  • What protocols you need to have in place for your staff.
  • How to handle medication samples.
  • How to set up monitoring of your vaccines.
  • What kind of documentation and what systems need to be in place.

 

Module 6 - "Operations."

This is the business side of managing your practice, something you most likely didn’t learn in school.

Since you are in the business of healthcare, you need to know how to manage the financial side of your practice. You’ll need to understand how to control your cash flow and how to utilize financial records and statements.

We’ll discuss human resources, risk management, safety of people and data, compliance, and more in this module.

Once you realize most of these areas are driven by federal programs and regulations, you’ll agree that knowing about them and following them is in your best interest.

 

Module 7 - "Marketing Your Practice."

Patients are the lifeblood of your practice. Find out how to attract a steady stream of patients into your business.

You will learn that marketing is not a one-time event but an ongoing process. This includes everything you do, on a daily basis, to bring patients into your practice.

Next, we’ll discuss the “who, what, when, where, why, and how” of putting your marketing plan into place.

Our discussion includes both offline and online marketing strategies you can use to reach your audience.

By the end of this module, you will know how to identify your target market and what marketing channels are best to reach them.


 

So now you know what topics are covered and what’s included in each module of the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0.

Our program is a proven system. It has been "field tested" and put to use by many of your colleagues.

Here’s what some of your colleagues are saying about the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0.

"I have always followed your advice, and today I have started my own women’s health clinic in Arizona. There isn’t a better time as today to start a private practice in this country. Thank you, and God bless you for all you do."

Maryjane Luhumbu, DNP
WHNP-BC/CFW

"In 2013 I lost my NP position due to organizational changes. It was the springboard I needed to answer this question...Do I want to start my own practice? Although my answer was yes... I had one hundred questions... and NOT a clue as how to get started! Then I was introduced to Barbara C. Phillips. I became a member and purchased The NPBO Startup Kit. It was the roadmap that put me closer to fulfilling my dream of providing health care services in an under-served urban community in North City. "

Arneatrice Myers, APRN
St. Louis, MO

"Just a short note to praise NPBO for their wonderful start-up program! My husband, Tommy, and I purchased the program in 2011 and utilized it to open our primary care practice, Home Town Healthcare. Five years later we are a thriving practice with over 5,000 patients! Anyone interested in starting up a practice should purchase NPBO’s start-up program!"

Linda Hagins, APRN-BC
Home Town HealthCare, Americus, GA

What’s My Investment?

Now you may be wondering… "How much is it going to cost me to get started with your program?"

Business training, just like medical training, can be expensive.

However, as an NP owned company, it’s important to us to offer our products at a reasonable level of investment. Of course, this includes the NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0.

But before I tell you how you can join our elite group of Clinician Business Owners, let me ask you this:

  • Are you tired of working for someone else?
  • Are you tired of being told what days and hours you must work?
  • Are you frustrated with having to see too many patients?
  • Are you tired of knowing you can do better for your patients, but can't in your current job?
  • And, are you ready to build a business, an asset, for yourself?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, it might be time for you to start your own practice.

The NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0 is a proven blueprint for starting your own practice. It is available to you for the one-time investment of $597.

Remember, you no longer have to go it alone. We are here to help.

But in case you’re still not sure if this is right for you, let me say this…

You already know how tough it is to get started in your own practice, to start your own business.

Sure, you can go it alone. But chances are it’ll cost you valuable time and money to figure it out by yourself.

Of course, that's if you don't give up on your dream all together…

 

Don't Let Fear Hold You Back...

Perhaps you're afraid of getting started? Or maybe you think now is not a good time to start a practice?

Believe me when I say "I understand," because I was afraid myself.

But don’t let these fears hold you back. Don’t let anything hold you back, because...

There will never be a perfect time to get started, and you will always have some fears!

So if you’re serious about starting your own practice, the time is now.

Don’t let fears and excuses hold you back any longer.

The NPBO™ Practice Startup System 2.0 is a proven blueprint for starting your own practice. In it, you’ll discover what you need to do, step by step, from start to finish!
