HOW THE AANE NURSE OWNER MASTERMIND WORKS

The AANE Nurse Owner Mastermind is a Coaching Program and Community

Comprehensive Practice Audit

To help you get you where you want to go, we start by understanding where you’re at, right now. We will guide you through a top-to-bottom review of your current practice.

Personalized Practice Blueprint

After the audit, our team of experts will provide you with a detailed plan for how to improve your practice at every level. Your Blueprint will address processes, procedures, protocols, customer experience, marketing, and branding – highlighting your strengths and areas for improvement.

Scaleable SOPs

Growing your practice requires a scalable infrastructure. As an AANE Mastermind member, you get access to our plug-and-play templates for Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) – from HR to OPS, and everything in between.

Monthly Community Calls

Each month we gather as a group to celebrate our wins and support each other with actionable advice – helping you reach business successes and peace of mind.

Monthly Top-Notch Guest Experts

In addition to our group discussions, AANE also introduces you to top-tier experts – unprecedented within Nurse Entrepreneurship communities. Our experts share topic-specific deep dives, followed by Q&A with the group! Within the AANE Master, you will elevate your network instantly! Past experts have included New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best Selling Authors, nationally recognized professional speakers, international creative agencies, specialists in healthcare supporting services (i.e. financial, legal, leadership, and technology experts).  

4 One-on-One Coaching Calls

In addition to the group experience, you also get 4 one-on-one coaching calls with fellow Nurse Owner and AANE Founder, Veronica Max. These quarterly intensives help you evaluate where you are in your practice, create a plan that helps you scale, and course correct as needed.

Private Slack Group

You’re never alone as an AANE Mastermind Member. You can reach out and ask a question 24/7 in our active Slack group! (If you’re not familiar with Slack, don’t worry. It’s an easy-to-use, free messaging app. Some of our members have even started using it in their business and with  their families, too!)

My marketer just informed me that in the first three weeks in the Mastermind group, he has decreased my new patient acquisition costs from $42 to $10. I didn't even know I was hemorrhaging so much money on that. Thanks, Veronica, for the insight on marketing.

Who is the Mastermind for?

Membership Requirements are as follows:

You Own a Practice (or are within 6 months of starting one)
Our Mastermind has 2 groups – Growth-focused owners and Start-Up-focused soon-to-be-owners. Growth and Start-Up members have their own Community Calls and specific Slack channels. All members attend Guest Expert Calls together and all other Slack channels are open for everyone.

Willing to Invest in Yourself 
The most important person you can invest in for your business (and your life) is yourself. Our membership is filled with Nurse Owners who know their worth and who are determined to achieve.

You Commit to Attending All Calls
Our community is strengthened by each member showing up for themselves and showing up for the group. This is how we create exponential value together!

You’re Willing to Share Your Knowledge
We are a group of givers and collaborators. No one is stingy with their experience or expertise in this group. Expect to serve just as much as you seek help.

You’re Humble and Honest
We share helpful and sometimes hard truths with one another – all with the intention to build up one another, not tear each other down.

You’re Willing Receive Feedback
You don’t have to take every piece of advice given, but you must be open-minded to the feedback given from the group.

You Have an Optimistic and Positive Attitude
Entrepreneurship (and life) is hard enough. We embrace the lighthearted side of our journeys together!

Still on the fence? That’s ok. Keep reading… 🙂

Small, Intimate, Powerful

Our commitment to you is that we will always keep our Mastermind Groups small – no more than 15 people per cohort. We will sometimes have raw conversations during our year-long journey together. The intimate size makes it a safe place to discuss the emotions of entrepreneurship and work/life balance issues.

PLUS, we commit to only 1 Nurse Owner per geographic area. This way you can focus on collaboration, not competition.

My concierge health practice has really taken off! Thank you so much Veronica for your help and guidance. It's taken me forever to do this and I struggled with gaining the confidence that I could actually be successful. I feel so incredibly blessed to be helping people and to truly be in charge of my own destiny!

THE AANE MASTERMIND BREAKDOWN

Nurse Owners Helping Nurse Owners

Nurse. Owner. Employer. Manager. Marketer. Mentor. Student. Parent.

Just a few of the MANY hats Nurse Entrepreneurs wear everyday. It’s not easy, but it IS worth it. And you don’t have to do it alone. Our network of Nurse Owners are dedicated to serve patients and the community, while they set themselves and their family’s up for success.

We take a holistic approach to our intimate Mastermind groups because when you’re a Nurse Owner, business isn’t just business. Big business goals come with business challenges, psychological hurdles, and an ever-evolving practice of work/life balance.

We are Nurses helping Nurses get what they want from business and from life.

Together, we are dedicated to helping you build a practice that supports your family, supports your community, supports your team, and supports you!

If you reach burnout… If you spread yourself too thin… your practice will suffer. In the AANE Mastermind, we combine our years of experience to help you operate more efficiently and scale your practices so you can live the life you’ve always envisioned!

You have been a caretaker to so many people. Let our group of caretakers care for YOU as you take your business to the next level!

A message from our President

My name is Veronica Pike. I’m a family nurse practitioner who had the crazy idea of starting my own healthcare practice back in 2013 …in the highly restrictive state of Texas no less!

The start-up process was hard. My education fell dismally short in preparing me to start my own business, plus I didn’t have any peers to look to for guidance or support. So, I did what most people do when looking for answers – I took to the web.

First, I went to my state board of nursing website. No information.

Next up was my NP professional organization. No information.

Ok, I thought – Google it is!  

I found forums with a couple of threads by people looking for answers to the same questions I had, but I couldn’t find any reputable resources about APN owned practices.

Next stop: Amazon. I ordered every book I could find on the subject, but most of the information was too general or based in theory, with no applicable instructions on how to actually start or run an APN practice.

I also turned to attorneys for advice. Turns out that if you ask three different attorneys the same question, you’ll likely get three different answers! (And in some cases, I received flat out incorrect advice!)

I eventually overcame these obstacles and started my first practice (Med2You), but the process took a lot longer than needed – thanks to a lack of information and guidance.

The struggle wasn’t over yet. I’ve learned that being an entrepreneur means being a professional problem-solver. This is great, because I love challenges. But must I face every challenge alone? Why should I reinvent the wheel time and time again? It can be so exhausting. There should be a better way for APN’s to start their businesses and serve their communities!

It was at this moment that the idea for the American Academy of Nurse Entrepreneurs was born. The AANE has designed the educational programs, resources, and community support network to fast-track the success of APN business owners.

I’m so happy that you’ve discovered the AANE because I know that this is the community and educational resource you’ve been looking for. I look forward to you becoming a member because you shouldn’t have to figure things out the hard way, like I did.

This Is Your Time

Your community needs your special gift of providing compassionate healthcare.  

Your family needs your presence.  You deserve to see financial rewards from your hard work.  On behalf of myself and the entire AANE Mastermind community, we sincerely hope to have the honor and privilege of working with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

So, you have questions? Let us try to answer them for you…

This is a year-long educational, coaching, and mentorship program. Together we build your strategy for success and keep you accountable.

It’s LIVE! We do record our group calls and guest expert deep dives so you can refer back to them whenever you need to! As a Mastermind member, you make the commitment – for yourself and for the group – to attend our monthly group calls. This is how we step up and support one another throughout the year.

There is a monthly fee to be a member of the Nurse Owner Mastermind. There is a discount if you elect for pay upfront for the year. For more details on your payment options, please click here.

Mastermind members commit to the full-year program.

Yep! Sure does! Tax deductible, baby!

Yes! There are plenty of ways you can get your questions quickly answered. In addition to our monthly group calls, we also have an active discussion group within Slack – a free, easy-to-use chat. 



If you are 6-months away from opening your practice, then yes, you can still apply for the Mastermind. We have 2 distinct groups within for the Nurse Owner Mastermind – new Nurse Owners and established Nurse Owners. We all come together for our Guest Expert Calls and have open discussions within Slack as well.

We also have dedicated Slack channels for each group to make sure everyone gets the specific value they need. The new and established Nurse Owners also have their own monthly group calls with Veronica, making sure we’re meeting you exactly where you’re at.

Absolutely! This Mastermind was created to help Nurse Entrepreneurs take their business to the next level. Whether that means opening up more locations, breaking into new markets, managing a growing team, or improving sustainable standard operating procedures, we’re here to help you through it all. Not only that, our community of Nurse Owners are dedicated to growing businesses that *don’t* sacrifice your work/life balance. We’re just as concerned about your well-being as we are your business’s well-being. That’s why this program takes a holistic approach to both professional and personal development.

Yes to all of the above! One of the wonderful things about the Nurse Owner Mastermind is that we don’t teach a cookie-cutter approach. We help you identify which business models make the most sense for you, your goals, and your target market. Plus, during our discussions, you’ll learn about all different kinds of business models – the challenges behind them and the benefits for having them. We help you grow at your own desired pace. 



Nope. We ensure that competing markets are not represented in the Nurse Owner Mastermind. That’s why our application process is important. We want you to feel comfortable sharing all the ups and downs behind your business without worrying about any competition listening in.

If there is anything at all that you’re not certain about, anything we haven’t made clear; any concerns or questions then please do contact us as info@aane.us and we’ll help you out.
