for new NPs
Tools, resources & support your NP career transition (and beyond!)
What is Real World NP?
Real World NP is an online medical education company. Since 2019, we've created comprehensive, concise, and relevant medical continuing educational materials for nurse practitioners based on their real-world needs.
Why do we do this? It all started with our CEO’s own nurse practitioner journey.
Hi! I'm Liz Rohr.
I’m a primary care family nurse practitioner, and I formed Real World NP, an online educational platform and business because:
- I'm obsessed with learning, teaching, and am fascinated by medicine.
- It's painful seeing new nurse practitioners struggle with the same issues again and again (and I get to help way more NPs online than I ever could in person).
- I wish I had a resource like this when I was new.
I've been a nurse for over a decade, and got my BSN from Boston College and MSN from UCLA.
Today, I work part-time in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Boston, MA and run this site.
Credentials aside, I'm the kind of girl you'll find perusing Up-To-Date on her phone before bed — I can't help myself.
Technically, my teaching career started as a pathophysiology and pharmacology tutor in undergrad– but I like to think it started back in third grade, when my teacher asked me to show my classmate how to write a short story.
When I’m not poring over textbooks or crafting videos, you can find me snuggling my German Shepherd-mix, Charlie, playing Anna & Elsa with my daughter, Amelia (that's us up there), or getting lost in my Nintendo Switch.
