What People Are Saying About ThriveAP’s Online Clinical Skills Training & Professional Development

“I am passionate about helping our newest Advanced Practice Providers transition into practice, working with ThriveAP made it all possible. Together we will grow confident clinicians and facilitate high quality patient experiences.”
"Being enrolled in the ThriveAP program has been super helpful. I learned a lot that I didn't learn in my NP program, or if I did, having not put it into practice I didn't understand the intricacies."
"A couple of years ago, our CEO made an important strategic decision to “invest” in the onboarding of our brand new nurse practitioners and physician assistants by enrolling them in ThriveAP. It has turned out to be beneficial to Johnson Health Center and a terrific complement to our providers’ ongoing training, providing them with essential ‘just-in-time’ knowledge and skill building. We highly recommend ThriveAP for your new NP or PA."
“I would encourage anybody, any way you can work with the NP to make both your time more effective, is a win-win. I have certainly seen that through the ThriveAP Program. I am sold on the partnership. The program itself is making participants more confident.”
