National Physician Assistant Week is October 6 – 12
National Nurse Practitioner Week is November 11-17
Take this time to celebrate ALL of your advanced practice providers. Put together something extra special this year to thank them and show your appreciation. The ideas are limitless! Get creative and show them that you care! Here are a few examples:
- Omelet station or breakfast bar
- Goodie baskets
- 15-minute massages
- Umbrella, t-shirt or stadium blanket
- Decorated lounge area
- After-hours social
- Oscars awards – with staff nominating/voting
Think about what you can do all year-round to keep APPs on your radar. APPs are key decision makers, so build meaningful relationships with them and be sure they are always included in your outreach and communication efforts. Another best practice is to include Advanced Practice Providers in your organization’s onboarding and retention program along with new physicians. If you don’t have a formalized onboarding and retention program, or need help taking it to another level, give us a call. We can help make a huge difference related to rapid ramp-up and long-term retention!
