Advanced Practice Provider Onboarding Checklist

physician and NP collaborate

If you’re an employer who hires advanced practice providers, you’re well aware of the challenges associated with onboarding a new nurse practitioner or physician assistant. The NP or PA many times must complete their own certification and licensure process. Then, credentialing resumes. Not only must the proper paperwork be submitted to state boards of medicine and nursing, as well as payers, the provider also needs an introduction to your practice. Without systems in place for the advanced practice provider onboarding process, something is bound to fall through the cracks.

At ThriveAP we’ve worked with hospitals and clinics nationwide in their quest to train and retain, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Through these interactions, we’ve seen the onboarding process for providers go smoothly, and in other instances, not so smoothly. Starting the employment relationship off on the right foot is essential for your advanced practice new hire to have confidence in and satisfaction with their new position.

If your practice could stand to be a bit more organized when it comes to the onboarding process for nurse practitioners and physician assistants, check out our advanced practice provider onboarding checklist. The checklist contains the basic steps you’ll need to take to make sure your new hire process goes without a hitch. This sample checklist should guide you through  nurse practitioner orientation or physician assistant orientation efficiently.
