The New Year is nearly here (are you ready?!) and naturally it’s time to make a few changes. Here at ThriveAP, we’re onboard with implementing a few new features for nurse practitioners and physician assistants in 2016. One of the changes I’m most excited about? Live ThriveAP webinars!
Written content is certainly helpful for personal and professional development, but live, in (virtual) person insight and instruction provides an added layer of depth to such information. So, in 2016, ThriveAP will regularly host live webinars covering topics from applying to a nurse practitioner program to tips for finding a job in a difficult NP job market and more.
In January, ThriveAP’s new webinar series kicks off with What you need to know about applying for a job with a major healthcare system. Many nurse practitioners have expressed that applying to large employers can be a frustrating experience. How do you stand out in a stack of hundreds of online applications? What are the best steps to take to get a hospital recruiting department to respond to your desperate emails? Next month we’re calling in experts to answer these questions and more.
January 13th at 1:00pm CST, ThriveAP’s inaugural webinar will give insight into ways nurse practitioners and physician assistants can give their job applications an edge when applying to large hospitals and major healthcare systems. If you would like to attend the webinar, reserve your spot by signing up here as attendance is limited.
