After a year in development, The Elite Nurse Practitioner and Heath Tunnell, FNP (owner of a successful and profitable wound and foot care clinic) are proud to announce The Wound and Foot Care Clinic Course! This is the DEFINITIVE guide for the nurse practitioner looking to open their own Wound and Foot Care Clinic or to simply integrate these services into their practice!
This course is designed for the nurse practitioner who is looking for the training and information necessary to open a clinic specializing in the treatment of wounds and foot issues or for the nurse practitioner who wants to integrate this service into their already established practice! This course will cover 90% of the problems you would ever encounter when it comes to wound and foot care.
Did you know that 2% of the American population suffer from a chronic wound? Did you know that Medicare estimates the cost of managing acute and chronic wounds to be approximately $50 BILLION dollars a year? Listen, the rise of chronic disease and our aging population is fueling the demand and NEED for nurse practitioners educated in providing wound and foot care! So, what does this mean? A great opportunity for the astute nurse practitioner entrepreneur to start their own practice and provide a VALUABLE service to their community.
Wound and foot care clinics are increasing in demand as our population ages. There are limited resources in many communities and patients are forced to travel long distances to receive ESSENTIAL care that should be available in their homes. Additionally, many clinics who provide these services have long wait times and patients are forced to go without adequate treatment. It is within the scope of the nurse practitioner to provide wound and foot care to their communities to enhance the wellbeing and health of their patients! You are an RN after all right?
Wound and foot care clinics make for a great part-time or full-time practice with HIGH REVENUE potential (Heath makes a healthy mid-six figure self-employed income through his practice). They also make for a great additional service line and revenue stream for the established practice. Any type of practice could deliver foot and wound care, but integrating it into a primary care, direct primary care, concierge care, dermatology, or even a general wellness practice where you see older individuals could prove to be worthwhile. Wounds affect all patient types and having the ability to treat this need will not only improve patient outcomes but improve patient satisfaction and your bottom line.
Wound and foot care can be delivered via the mobile/house call route, in the office, or in other facilities such as assisted living facilities or nursing homes. There are endless possibilities to deliver this needed service for the nurse practitioner entrepreneur. Wound and foot care clinics are predominately going to be an insurance accepting practice and we will cover billing in the course but integrating cash services into it are possible and also discussed in the course.
The best part? This type of practice is CHEAP to start and it has a low barrier to entry. Wound and foot care is a simple service to learn and implement into your practice!
This course is designed to teach the nurse practitioner who has ZERO experience with wound and foot care the necessary knowledge to get started with this in demand service! This course provides you all the information needed to start your own wound and foot care clinic from the ground floor with step-by-step instruction on a multitude of wound and foot care treatment protocols and the clinical aspects that YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Morgan H: I have taken about 7 courses and I love every single one of them ! I have learned so much that I didn’t even learn in NP school! Thank you for honest teaching and giving everything needed to open our business, and encouraging us to step to freedom.
Jen O: This is one of the best APRN entrepreneurship programs on the market. I am building my practice and the courses are excellent!
Dee D: I have purchased many education courses from the Elite Nurse Practitioner. Because of his courses, I’m now working part time, and growing a niche side clinic. His ongoing shots of wisdom and encouragement are effective and, when needed, he provides a “kick in the ass”. He stays with you and doesn’t teach you and then drop you. He also knows and appreciates the value of a hard working Nurse Practitioner and is fantastic at communicating that value. It doesn’t take long before you begin to realize that the only thing holding you back is that you bought into the idea that being a slave to corporate run healthcare is the only way to function meaningfully as an NP, to have financial security, and to be happy. It’s time for you to get out of your way :)

Hi, I'm Justin Allan MSN FNP
I am the owner and author of The Elite Nurse Practitioner, one of the hottest blogs for nurse practitioners who want to break free from the shackles of modern healthcare.
I have been practicing as an NP for 7 years. I have worked all over the country and in many different settings. I became sick of working for others and not earning what I knew what was possible and fair. So, I decided to venture out on my own.
I now own multiple successful side practices and businesses as an NP. My goal is to share the knowledge I have learned and developed to my fellow NP colleagues so you can reach a level of success that very few NPs will ever achieve. It is possible to build profitable practices and businesses as a nurse practitioner! Do not let anyone else tell you otherwise!
