Who hasn’t dreamt of running away and living on a beautiful island somewhere? As luxurious as views of pristine beaches and captivating landscapes right outside your doorstep sounds, actually making island living a reality can come with a lot of fears and hesitation.

Our New Program Helps Recent Grads...Thrive

I am SO excited to announce today that MidlevelU is rolling out a new program for advanced practice providers. Why, you ask? Based on my own experience as a nurse practitioner, the transition from being in a NP program to actual practice is a tough one. While my nurse practitioner program gave me a solid clinical foundation, in my first job I still had a lot to learn. Providers I worked with didn't have enough time in their days to train, educate and mentor me to help fill gaps in my knowledge. This made for a frustrating first work experience. So, here at MidlevelU we decided to do something about it. Enter ThriveAP
