National Nurse Practitioner Entrepreneur Network (NNPEN)
Have you thought about starting your own healthcare business but didn’t know how? NNPEN is your “go to” resource. We’re a network of Nurse Practitioners (NPs) started by Nurse Practitioners to accelerate the number and rate of Nurse Practitioners becoming owners of sustainable businesses. Our offerings are motivated by a single question: To preserve the benefits of nurse-led care, the number of nurse-led start-ups must grow substantially and operate sustainably. HOW WILL THAT HAPPEN?
Welcome to our website! Take a look around. We have a discussion forum for NNPEN members. The forum can be found under the Resources menu and is only visible to signed-in members. Be sure to subscribe to the forum so that you receive email updates when topics are posted. If you have a question or discussion item, feel free to post and start interacting with your fellow members!

DATE: December 21st, 2021
TIME: 8:30pm ET
SPEAKER: Lindsey Maloney, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC
TOPIC: Medicine On The Move: The Development of a Mobile Primary Care
Dr. Lindsey Maloney is a Connecticut native and began her healthcare journey as a CNA in the nursing home setting. She practiced as an RN in the home care and hospital setting for 6 years before becoming an NP. Her early career as an NP was spent in a community health center providing acute and chronic care to high-risk patients with multiple, poorly managed health conditions facing multiple socioeconomic barriers. In 2020, she developed a home based primary care model in her area to remove transportation, physical, socioeconomic, or emotional barriers to high quality primary care. Her business is actively growing with a patient panel greater than 200 and an enlarging staff base. She is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish, and has received specialized training in infectious disease and LGBTQ+ care. Outside of running her business, she is an active member of local business associations and enjoys traveling with her husband Patrick or relaxing with her fur babies Frank and Cloud.
Join in and listen to this story of how an NP developed her practice, why she decided to go into business for herself and things she wished she knew before getting started!
