Where to Start? Nurse Practitioner Business Planning.


The first step in becoming a nurse entrepreneur is a business plan. Your business plan can start with anything from a name for your NP-owned business, to the payers you’d like to accept, to the patients you’d like to see. These ideas can form the basis of and guidance for a nurse practitioner business model. Some important components to consider are: 

  • When would you like to open your NP business? 
  • What will you name your independent practice? 
  • In what states would you like to practice? 
  • Where can nurse practitioners practice independently? 
  • Will your nurse practitioner business be brick-and-mortar? Telehealth? Home visit?  
  • What specialties/services will you offer? Is there a need for that in the community you’re serving? 
  • Will you be accepting insurance? Which payers? 
  • What steps can you take to grow your practice
  • Will you start full-time? If not, when will you make the transition to full-time?
