Everything new nurse practitioners need to know about lab interpretation — in one place
It's time to take the stress out of lab interpretation because...
➡️ Clinic is too busy to waste time on bulky, impractical, hard-to-navigate resources.
➡️ Who has time for another boring continuing education lecture that doesn’t even get to the point?

➡️ You're ready to stop feeling overwhelmed, and start feeling confident.Sign me up for the Lab Interpretation Crash Course!
The Lab Interpretation Crash Course makes labs easier for new nurse practitioners
As a primary care nurse practitioner, you deal with lab results every day...but did school really prepare you for the real world of ordering and interpreting labs as a nurse practitioner (especially the ~slightly~ abnormal ones)?
Every day, new nurse practitioners have to figure out what to do about...
CBC with Differentials
Liver Function Tests (LFTs)
Basic Metabolic Panels
PCOS, Testosterone & Menopause
Urinalysis & Urine Dipstick
Becoming a nurse practitioner is HARD
And handling lab results is a big part of that. The uncertainty — are you doing it right?! — is scary.
The Lab Crash Course is designed for real-life nurse practitioners — the NPs looking to:
✅ Find information that's concise, comprehensive, and hyper-relevant to their everyday clinical practice.
✅ Take charge of clinic life and make a difference in their patients' lives.
✅ Feel confident and empowered by their knowledge.
✅ Get hours back for yourself every day.Sign me up!
TIME FOR SOME REAL TALK.
I understand where you're at because I WAS you.
When I was a new NP, I felt queasy every time I opened my laptop and saw lab results in my inbox.
I’d try to figure it out on my own, hopping from resource to resource, eyes glazing over while I read the same lines again and again.
I'd stare at lab results before finally breaking down and asking for help again…but getting different answers from different providers.
Which is exactly why I wanted to help.
I dug into all (literally, all) the evidence-based resources available and found the good stuff — you know, the information you actually need to use in your day-to-day work.
All in all, the Lab Crash Course represents 120 hours of reading, deciphering, and analyzing!
I also interviewed expert internal medicine, hematology, gastroenterology and nephrology physicians to provide the highest degree of specialist verification.
The result: A step-by-step overview for interpreting the most common labs in primary care, so you’ll know what ranges to worry about, when to recheck, what to manage in-house and what to refer out.
Because knowing what to do with a lab result is the difference between spending hours every week stressing...and spending more time with your family, friends, and self-care during your time off.
How the Lab Interpretation Crash Course has helped NPs
Cynthia H., NP
I started the course when I got my first job as a PCP. This course was very concise and focused in on what I really needed to know to practice. Totally worth it. I will be listening to it again and again.
Sarah B., FNP
Until I found you I spent endless hours researching patient labs (repeatedly). I've learned a ton of new information. I am finding that some of the NPs that have been practicing for much much longer are coming to me for help with labs. This knowledge is invaluable!
Fatima M., FNP-BC
Just wanted to say thank you for all your online resources and the lab crash course! I felt so comfortable sitting down, reviewing my patients CBC and iron studies to figure out what was going on!

Shelly P., NP
This course has changed the way I look at patients. I am starting to consider other systems when I go to order labs and am starting be more specific instead of just order labs and interpret them when I get them.
I think the best part is that I get to go back and look at the videos again because I pick up more each time I review them.
Sarah K., NP
In my practice as a new grad, I found that if I could pinpoint any particular area that I wished we had more detailed coursework in school, it would have been lab interpretation. We got tidbits here and there when it was applicable to the disease we were learning about, but nothing as comprehensive and detailed as this course. I feel much more confident in my ability to make day-to-day decisions when reviewing labs.
Megan R., NP
This definitely lessens the stress! I have had NP friends come to me with lab questions and I find myself knowing exactly what to do! This has saved me so much time!
I do not believe I would have learned this information in the immediate future without this course. This has had such a positive impact on my practice!
