Aberdeen, WA (PressExposure) April 15, 2008 -- When Nancy Dirubbo graduated from Northeastern Universityâs Family Nurse Practitioner Program in 1978 she had a visionâ¦she wanted to help people. And as she began practicing full time as a Nurse Practitioner she fulfilled that dream. Seven years later she did something that was rarely done at the time; she opened her own independent practice. In 1985, the Laconia Womenâs Health Center in Laconia, New Hampshire opened itsâ doors to the public. Today, 23 years later, Ms. Dirubbo runs one of the oldest Nurse Practitioner owned and operated primary care practices in the United States.
Health care providers know that operating your own practice in todayâs health care climate is challenging and time consuming to say the least. Yet Ms. Dirubbo continues to find time to provide continuing education programs to other health professionals throughout the US. She has been published by various journals such as, the American Journal of Nursing and The Nurse Practitioner Journal, and has been featured on 60 minutes. Now, sheâs speaking with us at NPInterviews â a division of Nurse Practitioner Business Owner (NPBO).
NPBOâs founder, Barbara C. Phillips said âNurse Practitioners donât have a lot of role models for business ownership. According to recent statistics available from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, an estimated 4% of all practicing NPs in the US, own their own business. This is a chance for Nurse Practitioners to learn from one of our pioneers. This promises to be an enlightening as well as stimulating interview.â This interesting and informative interview will take place on March 16th, 2008. NPs and other interested parties are invited to listen in. Details are available at http://www.NPInterviews.com.
