Program Description

The Housecall Course was designed to equip nurse practitioners and other clinicians with essential skills and tools necessary for establishing a successful housecall practice. The practitioner will obtain critical knowledge on how to incorporate house calls into an already existing medical practice or learn how to start an independent housecall practice.

The course is completed over a span of two days in New Orleans. The first day is spent in the field and the second day is in the office/clinic. Enrollment is limited to two students per session, with dates available every month. The schedule fills up fast, so plan several months in advance if you want to attend The Housecall Course in New Orleans. Please call (504) 861-0108 with questions or use our online contact form.

Cost

The seminar costs $1,100 (including $100 registration fee) per participant for the two-day course. 

Due to the nature of The Housecall Course, I can only accommodate two NPs at a time. This will bring the total to three people entering a person’s home. Most of the patients surveyed for the Housecall program said that three is the maximum amount of visitors at any time from home health that they would be able to comfortably accommodate in their home.
