BJC HealthCare Collaborates with ThriveAP for Innovative APP Educational Program | News

NASHVILLE, Tenn., February 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — ThriveAP is proud to announce a new relationship with BJC Healthcare to help nurse practitioners and physician assistants accelerate their clinical practice goals.

ThriveAP is a Nashvillepostgraduate training resource based on hospitals, clinics and other institutions employing Advanced Practice Providers (APPs). ThriveAP’s program will allow BJC providers to receive live, online, accredited programming specifically designed to address the growing impact of APPs in the delivery of healthcare across the country.

Recent studies have identified the need for programs that support the transition from a learning-to-practice environment in response to the increased complexity of patient care and the projected growth in PPA employment. These programs help accelerate the adoption of clinical education to actual clinical practice and have been shown to increase facility productivity, organizational performance, retention, satisfaction and patient outcomes.

“We are delighted to partner with such a respected medical institution as BJC Healthcare,” said Chris Pool, CEO of ThriveAP. “Advanced practice providers are critical to successful care delivery, and employers recognize the need to invest in the development and success of these providers. The continued shortage of physicians and our nation’s shortcomings in delivering caregivers have increased reliance on PPAs, which in turn has led to growth in their employment and expansion of their autonomy and responsibility.As a result, employers are increasing their investments in training programs and education to support the importance of these professionals.
