"Should I start my own business?"

Starting a business is exciting and scary at times. AANE offers many resources - courses, coaching, workshops, etc - to help you start your business the right way. You can find freedom, flexibility, and make more money by starting your own practice!

"Where can I connect with mentors who can help me grow my practice?"

You’re in the right place! One of the reasons we started AANE was to connect experienced and successful practice owners with those who are growing their own practice. AANE is a wonderful community of nurse owners who want to help each other be successful.

"I'm concerned about state laws and regulations. Where can I find resources to make sure I don't break any laws?"

AANE compiles up-to-date and easy-to-understand summaries of the laws and regulations that apply to APN-owned practices in your state. Plus you have access to our in-house general counsel for guidance.

"How do I find funding for my business?"

There are many different ways to fund your practice. AANE can walk you through each option to find the right fit for you!


The AANE was started by an APN. She experienced the struggles and frustrations of starting and growing a practice without any guidance or resources. She created AANE to be THE place nurses could find everything they need for building successful businesses.

Are Nurses Keeping Each Other Quiet?

One of my favorite parts about the American Academy of Nurse Entrepreneurs is how I get to bring in fantastic guest experts for our monthly masterclasses for our membership. And our last masterclass was certainly no exception! For this month, I had the pleasure of inviting Tamsen Webster to share her marketing and messaging know-how.
