How Primary Care Offices Work for New Nurse PractitionersJun 08, 2021
⭐️ CME Opportunity for this video below ⭐️
As nurse practitioners, we primarily learn the clinical aspects of practice. For good reason-- we’re taking care of real patients’ lives. But there’s a whole lot more to learn on the job, from delegation and leadership, to navigating day-to-day challenges in the ecosystem of a clinic.
I was SO focused on learning the clinical parts as a new NP, that I was caught by surprise at my first job. I didn’t realize how primary care offices work-- the business of running a clinic -- and the role I now played.
Understanding how primary care offices work from a business perspective can help you in SO many aspects of your job as a nurse practitioner-- from asking the right questions during a clinic interview, to negotiating salary, to making improvements in clinic workflow or requesting more support.

In this week’s video, I’m covering the foundations of how primary care clinics work from a business perspective, your role, and it will serve for the basis of a few upcoming videos where I address the “ideal world” and the “real world” of primary care offices, and how to navigate the common issues that come up.
