In collaboration with Jennifer Plescia, DNP, who owns a successful mobile COVID testing clinic, the Elite Nurse Practitioner is proud to announce that The Mobile COVID and Point of Care Testing Practice Course is now on sale! This course compliments the recently released House call and Mobile Practice Course as it can be implemented very easily into a standard mobile practice. The information in this course could also be used to start a stand alone “niche service” mobile point of care testing practice if you were interested in a great low liability part-time practice!
The COVID pandemic has changed how healthcare is delivered in this country. Not only has healthcare delivery changed, but multiple other industries such as food and retail have seen this radical shift in delivering convenience. The general American consumer is becoming accustomed to services and products being delivered directly to their home. For this reason, telemedicine and mobile practice will continue to flourish for the foreseeable future. Providing mobile on demand point of care testing will satisfy this ever-increasing demand.
Many practices have seen tremendous success over the past year delivering mobile COVID testing to the patient. This trend will continue and for the astute nurse practitioner entrepreneur, delivering COVID testing IN ADDITION to other CLIA-waived point of care testing would be smart move! Many patients see the value in having point of care testing done in their home vs. going to a busy urgent care or primary care office and waiting around for possible hours at a time. Because of this, many people are actively seeking out this type of convenient concierge service.
Providing mobile point of care and COVID testing can be implemented into an established practice or can be started as a great stand-alone side practice for any nurse practitioner! You can set this up as a cash model or bill insurance for it as well. Be aware though, that many patients are more than happy to pay cash simply because of the safety and convenience the mobile model delivers!
This course is a concise and straight to the point guide on how to do mobile point of care testing with a focus on COVID testing. We are focusing predominately on COVID testing as it has multiple regulatory and safety considerations surrounding it as compared to the other simple point of care tests like Strep, Influenza, and MONO, but the general mobile point of care processes are all the same regardless of the test.
This course will teach the nurse practitioner on how to start a simple mobile point of care and COVID testing practice. Be aware though, it will not go into the detail that The House Call and Mobile Practice Course goes into as that course covers every facet of a mobile practice whereas this course covers predominately the point of care and COVID testing aspects. Therefore, they complement each other very well.
This course will teach you:
- What a mobile point of care and COVID testing practice is.
- How to obtain a CLIA waiver.
- The difference between rapid and PCR COVID testing.
- When to obtain a COVID PCR test based off the rapid result and where to get the test from.

- How to succeed and more!
