Greater Good Health announces the launch of a Clinic Leadership Program for Emerging Nurse Practitioners

The program aims to provide NPs with the essential leadership and management skills to help them advance their careers and improve patient outcomes

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA., November 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Greater Good Health, the company redefining value-based care through its primary care model centered around nurse practitioners (NPs), today announced the launch of its Clinician Leadership Program (CLP). Designed for emerging NP leaders interested in further professional growth and development, CLP provides NPs with a series of training sessions and coaching. Upon completion, participants will be equipped with the practical leadership and management skills needed to effectively lead teams, understand the business of healthcare, and improve patient outcomes. Created by the GGH Institute, the program content is accredited by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and offers 16 continuing education (CE) credits.

“We know that GPs will play a key role in primary care and fill major gaps in our current healthcare system,” said Silvia Hapana, founder and CEO of Greater Good Health. “However, too many NPs still do not have easy access to development programs, support systems, or resources that will enhance their leadership and management experiences. As Greater Good Health continues to expand, we are committed to developing NP leaders alongside the business. As such, we are excited to open up more opportunities for NPs and further invest in the next generation of healthcare leaders by launching this unique program.”

Specific areas of focus include emotional intelligence, effective communication, coaching and feedback, professional development and core human resources. In addition, NP leaders learn more about the healthcare ecosystem, clinical operations, current payment models and relevant levers in value-based care. Participants are connected with a clinical NP advisor who offers support and guidance throughout the program.

“With a passion for lifelong learning, self-investment and well-being, we aim to inspire NPs to become even better clinicians, ultimately improving care and health outcomes for their patients,” said Glynis Gray, director of the GGH Institute. “Our goal is to promote a healthier existence for both NPs and patients, and we’re confident that this type of program—not typically offered to NPs—is a step in the right direction.”

Currently available by invitation only to selected NPs who are part of the GGH network in CaliforniaCLP will expand to NP in additional states in the near future.

“CLP is a game changer for NPs looking to advance into clinical leadership roles,” said Pamela Bryant, DNP, Greater Good Health NP Advisory Council and President of the South Bay Chapter for the California Association of Nurse Practitioners (CANP). “By making this investment in NPs, Greater Good Health is enabling NPs to practice at the top of their licensure while strengthening advocacy for full practice authority. I’m excited for this program to launch!”

Since its launch in 2021, the GGH Institute has provided a framework to support clinical excellence, self-development, work-life balance and personal fulfillment. For more information, visit www.greatergoodhealth.com/ggh-institute.
