About Us

Np2Be is a turn-key solution to the confusing certification & licensure process for advanced practice nurses. Founded and run by two certified advanced practice nurses, we are the only resource that provides advanced practice nurses all the information they need to become a licensed NP. There was no one resource that existed which provided new graduate APNs that information until now. Np2Be is that one point of contact regardless of what state you are located!

We liberate new graduates from the burden of this process. For a small fee, you get the relief, freedom, and confidence that your certification and licensure is being done correctly and quickly! We are where you start your career on the right foot – we are available for constant customer support, answering many questions regarding the cumbersome process of board certification, state licensure, and prescriptive authority. Through our articles, webinars, and products, we are here to be your guiding light!

As APNs ourselves, we remember what it was like being in graduate school, working as an RN, trying to study for board certification, find a new career, and not to mention, have balanced personal lives of our own outside of school and work! It was an overwhelming time during which we spent countless hours researching what it was exactly we were supposed to do, and in what order we were supposed to do it in, to become certified nurse practitioners after the education part was completed. Once we gained our experience and footing in the clinical world, we started interacting with students who voiced the same frustrations, driving our desire to give back and provide a seamless process that would assist the APNs of tomorrow!
