What Providers Are Saying

The ThriveAP program was helpful clinically with excellent presentations that were pertinent for my first year. More than that, the relationships that were built were my saving grace. Being a new NP I was able to come to my Class Leader and the others and voice my frustrations, victories, and insecurities and I was heard. I would recommend this program for NP’s just starting out or returning to the workforce.
