What Providers Are Saying

"Being enrolled in the ThriveAP program has been super helpful. I learned a lot that I didn't learn in my NP program, or if I did, having not put it into practice I didn't understand the intricacies."

Kathryn F., NP | Meridian Health Services

“I have been so encouraged by how helpful the topics and speakers have been. I continually find myself wanting to go back and listen to lectures after tough cases or to prepare myself for a patient I'll be seeing in the upcoming week. Thank you for making this program so great! I can't recommend it enough to others.”
