About Us

Neighborhood Nurse was founded to help solve primary care access problems in individual communities throughout the US. Our team brings together clinical and business healthcare experiences to help solve these access problems.

 

There are several factors that have lead to the primary care access problems that communities face today. In many cases, these factors have lead to the sacrifice of patient-provider relationships, compounding these access problems.

 

We believe that community-based providers that have the ability to form strong patient relationships are a solution to restoring access to primary care. Assisted with efficiencies from modern technologies,  providers can now build sustainable practices that meet the needs of 21st century patients. We believe that Nurse Practitioners are well positioned for this role due to their professional licensure and personal characteristics.

Compared to other primary care disciplines, NPs are most likely to practice in rural communities. 18% of NPs practice in communities of fewer than 25,000 residents.
There is extensive and consistent evidence that NPs provide care of equal or better quality at a lower cost than comparable services provided by others.
