Can Nurse Practitioners Gain Freedom From the Medical Rat Race?

On episode 478 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith welcomes back Dr. Annie DePasquale of CollaboratingDocs.com. This time, Keith and Dr. Annie discuss the hottest trends in nurse practitioner career paths, especially for cash-based business endeavors like medical aesthetics, weight loss, IV hydration and vitamin infusions, telepsychiatry, and concierge medicine. Many NPs are wanting more freedom from the healthcare system rat race, and cash-based private practices are one way to circumvent the slog that so many NPs are encountering when working in the mainstream medical system. Dr. Annie DePasquale, MD is a Board-certified Family Medicine physician who first-hand saw an unmet need for her NP colleagues who need a supervising physician to practice independently. Dr. DePasquale studied piano & French as an Undergrad at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and completing her Facility Medicine Residency program at Georgetown University in Washington DC. She taught for the Teach America program in Baltimore, MD and worked for Federally Qualified Health Centers in Washington, DC, Medford, OR & Lynchburg, VA. In 2020, Dr. Annie DePasquale founded Collaborating Docs when she realized how hard it is for NPs to find a collaborating physician. The hoops that nurse practitioners have to jump through to start practicing are too exhausting for anyone to handle alone. Dr. DePasquale benefited greatly from the mentorship of NPs throughout her career, especially when she was a green new grad, so she is very committed to giving back to the community that helped her so much. Along with her team, Dr. DePasquale's mission is to make it easy for NPs to help more patients by having the freedom of choice. Collaborating Docs has helped over 4000 NPs match with collaborating physicians. Please check out Dr. Annie's previous interview on episode 453 of The Nurse Keith Show, "Where Do Nurse Practitioners Turn When They Need Collaborating Docs?"

Investing in Nurses! Leadership & Care Transformation

Despite broad awareness and agreement on the need for massive and urgent investment in nursing to transform our complex health and care systems, the American Nurses Foundation’s Philanthropic Support for the Nursing Profession report revealed that nursing receives just one penny of every healthcare philanthropy dollar. In this third and final episode in our series of rare, in-depth unscripted conversations with philanthropists, fundraisers, program managers, executive directors, grantees, and innovators we explore the creative, strategic, and evidence-based approaches to investing and fostering nurses as drivers of transformative, systemic change in health systems.   In conversations with Marion Leary, PhD, MPH, RN, Director of Innovation at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Nursing, Howard Reid, Johnson & Johnson Global Head of Global Health Equity, and Ahrin Mishan Executive Director of The Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation, we hear the connection between nurses as catalysts in care delivery transformation and investments in leadership programming and the concern that without addressing the current and significant workplace stresses, the attrition of well trained, skilled nurses from the profession will continue.   Through strategic, targeted, and enduring investments that evolve alongside changing workforce needs, programs like the Hillman Foundation’s nurse innovation grants, Design Thinking for Health, Johnson & Johnson’s Nursing Innovation Fellowship, and NurseHack4Health demonstrate their powerful impact on career growth, longevity, and preparing nurses in taking on leadership roles within their institutions, in the broader health care sector, and at all levels of public policy. These thought leaders encourage more funders to look at nursing as an investment in accelerating the improvement of our healthcare systems and make clear that nurses are best positioned to identify, implement, and disseminate innovative strategies to advance health care access, quality and equity.
