In the largest collaborative effort in Elite Nurse Practitioner history, The Elite Nurse Practitioner is proud to announce The Foundational Functional Medicine Course, the Elite NP guide on integrating functional medicine into your practice or starting a functional medicine practice from scratch! I have received hundreds of requests for a functional medicine course; therefore, we have spent multiple months and tens of thousands of dollars developing this course, so I am very excited to finally get it out to all my nurse practitioner sisters and brothers.
This course is designed for the nurse practitioner who wants to learn the clinical and business concepts and foundations of functional medicine. Starting a functional medicine practice is relatively straightforward, inexpensive to start, and can generate high revenue for the astute nurse practitioner entrepreneur. Integrating this into an established practice is even easier, and we will show you how to do it!
This course is the only nurse practitioner-specific functional medicine course on the market that will not only teach the nurse practitioner the foundational clinical knowledge of functional medicine but will also cover the business components of starting a functional medicine practice or how to integrate it into an established practice.
Functional medicine is defined as a patient-centered and systems biology-based approach to chronic disease management where the root cause of the disease is identified and addressed. Essentially, the underlying root cause of chronic diseases are identified, and a more holistic approach to treatment is pursued that focuses on treating the root cause of disease while enabling patients to make lifestyle changes that will bring their body back into balance and well-being.
Let’s face it, many patients are sick of the traditional medical and healthcare model. Patients are tired of the ever-revolving door of traditional medicine, where they take more pills to treat symptoms and continue to go to never-ending appointments that do not solve the underlying problem. Instead, patients want an ANSWER and a SOLUTION to health problems, and functional medicine can provide just that in many cases.
Functional medicine has exploded in growth over the past 5-7 years as patients are becoming more aware of alternatives to the traditional healthcare model. Patients in today’s marketplace are more health conscious and willing to make the changes in their life to improve their health conditions, but they still need direction from a creditable provider, and this is where the nurse practitioner can shine! Our course will educate the nurse practitioner on how to deliver this need to the patient!
Functional medicine is an 87-billion-dollar industry in the United States. The demand continues to increase; therefore, this is an amazing opportunity for the astute nurse practitioner entrepreneur who is looking to create a predominately cash-based practice that not only generates healthy profits but also allows the nurse practitioner to spend quality time with the patient and helps them find solutions to their health problems. Additionally, you can integrate this into an insurance-based practice, and we also cover that in this course!
This course is designed to teach the nurse practitioner with ZERO experience with functional medicine the foundational knowledge of integrating functional medicine into their practice. This course covers a variety of functional medicine-based clinical subjects in addition to the business concepts you need to know to start a functional medicine practice from scratch or to integrate it into an established practice. And the best part? This course doesn’t cost tens of thousands of dollars like other functional medicine programs! Our goal is to provide you with an AFFORDABLE option that also provides quality and up-to-date information!

Functional medicine will continue to grow in demand as more patients are wanting to ESCAPE the conventional medical model and find a way to bring their body back into balance and treat the ROOT cause of their problems instead of being given another pill that only masks the issue. Functional medicine has long-term growth potential as our population ages and as more people want to try alternative forms of healthcare. So, what are you waiting for? Get started today!
