There are many ways a startup can boost its level of competitiveness. Reducing costs, especially overhead costs is one of the simplest approaches that will allow a company to remain competitive in a saturated market. In the healthcare industry, startups and existing corporations are also taking active steps to reduce costs. One of the most effective methods to lower healthcare costs, according to studies by Bradley University and its doctor of nurse practitioner programs, is by recruiting nurse practitioners.
Nurse practitioners have the skills and knowledge of doctors and physicians, which means they can handle patients that require more advanced treatments. On the other hand, NPs are not as expensive as doctors or specialists, which is why hospitals and healthcare startups can hire more without increasing their overhead costs substantially.
