Independent Practice and Business Owners (IPBO) Committee
Share |

The NPO Independent Practice and Business Owners Committee (IPBO) works to advocate for and provide support and education to nurse practitioners who practice independently or own their own business. 

While these NPs face many of the same issues other NPs encounter in practice, they also have to deal with issues involving running a business, billing and coding, working directly with insurance companies and more.

The IPBO committee supports these NPs by:

  • Offering a fun and unique networking opportunity for independent NPs
  • Providing a forum for NPs who are business owners to identify and recommend action on issues
  • Exploring business arrangements and entities to assist members in operating their practice

Committee Involvement

The IPBO is open for any NPO member who currently, or plans in the future to, practice independently or own their own practice.

Non-member NPs are invited to attend a meeting to learn more about the IPBO, but must be an NPO member to be on the committee and participate regularly. Click here to learn more about NPO membership and to join today!

Subscribe to the IPBO Email List

NPs can subscribe to the NPO Independent Practice and Business Owners (IPBO) mailing list. By subscribing, you agree to receive emails from NPO regarding future IPBO meetings, updates on issues related to IPBO and notices of future NPO events. You can unsubscribe at any time.

IPBO Group on Facebook

NPO has created a private group on Facebook for IPBO members. The group provides an opportunity and a venue for NPO members to discuss issues impacting NPs that are self-employed, in independent practice, or own their own businesses.
