"You can get past the dead end. You can break through the ceiling. I did and so have countless others."

The Elite NURSE Practitioner | About

Greetings. My name is Justin Allan. I have been practicing as an MSN prepared Nurse Practitioner for 8 years in a variety of settings.

In just the last 3 years, I have increased my personal income to well over $450k a year. How did I do this? Through starting multiple side businesses and implementing the principles of The Elite Nurse Practitioner Model into my life!

I created the Elite Nurse Practitioner with one goal in mind: to help form an elite group of nurse practitioners who make what they deserve and are in control of their professional and personal lives.

This is not a care bear blog filled with a bunch of non-sense nursing theory, non-practical BS advice from educators and administrators, and how to get in touch with your inner being. This is a blog for those nurse practitioners out there that want to take control of their lives and have professional FREEDOM through practical real world actionable advice and content.

You might not like or agree with what I have to say. That is fine. But what I am going to show you is the cold hard truth on how to get results in the real world. It works for me, students I have precepted, multiple other successful entrepreneurs I have consulted with, and the THOUSANDS of nurse practitioners who have took Elite Nurse Practitioner courses.

Listen, its time for:

No more crap pay for equal work.

No more being told what to do because some pencil pusher thinks it’s what you “should” do.

No more physicians dictating your life: telling you how to practice, offloading all the work they don’t want to do onto you, being an asshole to you for no reason and treating you like you are an inferior medical provider.

You can get past the dead end. You can break through the ceiling. I did and so have countless other nurse practitioners.

It is time for YOU to become one of the Elite Nurse Practitioners!

Justin Allan, MSN FNP

Justin holds a BS in biology, a BSN, and an MSN. He is a practicing FNP and member of the AANP. He has worked in multiple practice settings including urgent care, emergency medicine, addiction medicine, family practice, and men’s health. He is the owner and author of The Elite Nurse Practitioner.

“I have been practicing as an FNP for 8 years in multiple different settings all over the country. One thing I have learned is that nurse practitioners do not fully utilize their true power. Well, I am here to change that! I am dedicated to help nurse practitioners break free from the shackles of modern healthcare. My mission is to help create a group of nurse practitioners that are wealthy, powerful, and professionally fulfilled.

I own multiple successful practices and businesses as a nurse practitioner. I have learned through trial and error and I want to share my knowledge with the nurse practitioner community.

You can be a financially, professionally, and personally free medical provider. I am here to help create a new group of nurse practitioners who can finally build the life they desire. This is why I created The Elite Nurse Practitioner and all its content!

If I can do it, you can do it as well! I will be here for every step of the way in your journey to freedom.”

The Elite Nurse Practitioner is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. 

Justin's Journey (Timeline)

Justin Allan MSN FNP went from a slave to the healthcare system to a fully independent nurse practitioner entrepreneur in just 3 years.

“If I can do it, and the other countless nurse practitioners who have taken my courses can do it, then so can you!”

The Graduation

Justin Allan graduates with his MSN-FNP in May of 2013 and begins working in an urgent care within 1 month of graduating.


Emergency Department

Continues to work in an urgent care but transfers to an emergency department to expand skill set.


Back to Urgent Care

Realizes there is a ceiling in the emergency department setting and transfers back to an urgent care for a more lucrative production-based compensation model.


The Relocation

Justin Allan becomes sick of working in a restrictive state and wants to open his own practice. He decides to apply to an urgent care job in an independent state and relocates across the country so he can pursue nurse practitioner entrepreneurship and be free.


Added Income Stream

Starts a part-time insurance accepting opioid addiction practice and continues to work in the urgent care setting.


Cash Based Services

Realizes the insurance model is restrictive to practice and decides to pursue cash-based businesses while continuing to work in the urgent care setting. Justin Allan decides to start a medical cannabis clinic early in the year and steps away from his opioid addiction practice (even though it was growing).


The Entrepreneurial Bug

Justin Allan catches the entrepreneurial bug and opens his men’s health clinic.

Late 2018

More Expansion

The men’s health clinic continues to flourish, and Justin decides to open a transgender HRT telemedicine practice that explodes in growth. He ends up selling the telemedicine practice 11 months after starting it. He continues to work urgent care but in a part-time capacity while building his medical cannabis clinic and men’s health practice. He picks up shifts at a local methadone clinic running their Suboxone practice to supplement income into his businesses as they grow.


The Elite Nurse Practitioner

Justin Allan decides that he wants to share his experiences, success, and The Elite NP Model with the nurse practitioner community and starts The Elite Nurse Practitioner.

Late 2019

The Elite NP Model Created

Justin continues to work part-time at the urgent care and works day and night growing his men’s health practice and The Elite Nurse Practitioner. He releases his first book “The Elite Nurse Practitioner Model” in January of 2020. Later in 2020, Justin opens his second men’s health practice while continuing to produce courses and content for the nurse practitioner community.


Total Financial Freedom

The men’s health practices surpass the $50,000 a month revenue mark and continue to grow exponentially. He hires 2 other nurse practitioners to help see patients. Justin continues to work on The Elite Nurse Practitioner helping thousands of nurse practitioners build successful practices. Justin Allan eventually drops to PRN status at the urgent care and becomes a totally self-sufficient nurse practitioner.

  1. I love you already! Yessssssssss! You speaking truth. Please reach out to me. I’m all about getting this paper out here and for ppl that are willing to teach others and not sugar coat with a bunch of bs lies, is the person I want to follow.

  2. Nice! I’m eager to learn. Do share tips on services, model and business plan if you will. Are you in full-practice state?
    Thanks for doing this!

    1. Full practice state yes. It is the only way to practice. I moved out of a very restrictive state. Best decision I ever made.

  3. I am in Florida and interested in becoming my own boss! I want to be independent and profitable and would love information on how to do so.

      1. What kind of business are you looking to start? I am definitely interested in getting connected. I am in the SE Orlando area

  4. Would love to hear more information! I’m an FNP been in urgent care setting for almost 2 years and feeling so burnt out, can’t find a job in the acute care setting and I’m so exhausted trying. I would like to eventually start my own clinic/business but have no clue on how or where to start. You make it sound easy and simple, and that’s why I’m seeking your help! Thank you for sharing

    1. Yes Melanie, it is exhausting and frustrating to look for a good job to no avail. The only way to break free is to start your own business. You have a powerful skill that the majority of the population does not have: The ability to diagnose and prescribe. Utilize that skill and privilege. So many business minded individuals would love to have that power.

  5. I just finished my DNP in FNP and currently doing my certification in Acute Care. I am very business conscious. Have multiple ideas for private business, one of them is wound care, Sabaxone treatment center with hope to one day open my extended hours primary care clinic. I resides in Michigan.

    1. Best of luck. Wound care and Suboxone can be very lucrative. My piece of advise for you is to just jump into it. You gotta pull the trigger.

  6. Desperately searching for a change and freedom. I live in a full practice authority state. Taking the free burprenorpjine class given by the AANP online. Tell me more please.

    1. We would love to have you join! Please comment and discuss on the articles. I will be launching a forum sometime in the near future.

  7. I think you are the first source that doesn’t BS us with fluff and nonsense. Getting ahead as an NP is hard work.
    Say on Brother!!!

    1. Thanks Carol! There is a lot of total garbage fluff that is out there in nursing. It is hard work. Physicians have it made. We have to put in the extra work to elevate ourselves to those income levels. It can be done!

  8. I read one of your post and felt you have the audacity to tell me to stop whining and start thinking outside of the box. YOU WERE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. Going rate for a collaborator is 1000.00 a month. Can’t do it, Won’t do it. Waiting on my license for a full practice state. Business formed. Accounts open ready to order supplies. You are exactly what I needed! Thanks

    1. $1k a month? F*ck that! For doing what? Signing off on a few charts? Not worth it. Get on it Jacqueline! Get multiple licenses and start hustling hard. The money is there. You just need patience and the willpower to do it! Keep me updated!

  9. I love everything you said! I literally say this everyday! Please help me and hopefully I can help you too! I have just subscribed! Thank you for creating this website!!

    1. Thanks Roshini! You are welcome, I hope I can reach out to those nurse practitioners who are just sick of it. If I help one NP get out from under the bullshit and really create a successful life, then it was totally worth it!

  10. You are my hero! Please be my mentor. That was the greatest thing I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to read all your articles!

  11. Thank you for doing this. It could not have come at a better time. I am an FNP that works for a surgical service. I’m tired of shift work and making lots of money for the hospital and surgeons. I work in a restrictive state and not in the position to move. I would be interested in some help to get moving in the right direction.

    1. I do offer consultations for 1 one 1 support if you need direction or assistance creating a business. I have been there Kim, working long shifts enriching others… It is demoralizing after a while. Even if you are in a restrictive state, you still have options like telemedicine or finding a collaborator.

      1. I currently work in pain management as an Adult NP. The physician pays me $125.00 per hour. His practice is strictly cash. During the holiday break the staff scheduled 60 patients for myself and the MD, ,, he made 24,000.00 dollars in 8 hours. And of course I was paid $125.00/h for a 10 hour shift. Yes I definitely need to start my own business.

        1. Yep… Welcome to being nickel and dimed. You made that guy a small fortune in one day. You were reimbursed well but still, you produced a significant profit. You know the game, start your own practice and make that kind of money. It can be done, I promise you it can. Be careful, cash opioid clinics can raise red flags if that is what you are doing.

  12. I was lucky and had a good preceptor at a rural healthcare clinic. He gave me all the info I needed about starting a rural healthcare clinic. I did my 2.5 years as a Hospitalist and working in a private clinic in a rural community. A lot of leg work and hiring the right office manager I was able to open my own clinic after just 3 years of experience as a FNP. I’ve been open now for 4 months and the practice is starting to pick up. Being my own boss is wonderful. Can’t wait to read your story. I just logged on to the blog.

    1. Awesome Matt! I love to hear these stories. Shoot me an email through the consulting tab. I would love to post an interview about your story.

  13. Love your insight- love to learn more- shoot me an email how to proceed. Want to work part-time(weekend/after hours/ SNF rounder) as ARNP to keep my skills fresh and current.

  14. Hi Justin,
    I am finishing my FNP in December and plan to get a post masters in psych NP starting next summer. We live in a restricted state, but my hubby is willing to move so I can eventually practice in a free practice state. I am interested in many areas including psych & addiction, but was thinking the psych would help me get more telemedicine?

    1. I think it would benefit you tremendously for telemedicine, especially for addiction treatment. A hybrid primary care/psych practice would be great with the right niche!

  15. Sounds great and I’m ready, do u have a step by step recommendation for getting a small office open and going? I already have a supervising physician and idea (especially in these difficult times).

  16. Justin,

    What guarantees do you offer on the purchase of your courses? If other words, if I am not satisfied with what I spent, is it refundable?

  17. Justin, I saw that you granted a preview to an above participant. Would you extend that same offer to me regarding the testosterone replacement course?

  18. First of all, I’d like to say my interactions with you have been immensely inspiring. Secondly, I am so motivated to start hustling and acquiring that financial freedom that I’ve been wanting for sooo long!
    Can’t wait to start my course!

    1. It has been a pleasure talking with you over email Anuraj! Thank you for the kind words. I hope the information on The Elite NP helps ignite that spark to get out there and create your own practice!

  19. Justin…..preach it brother!
    Ive been a NP for the last 18 years & way past time for me to take control. My goal is to open and run my own (Cash) Suboxone Clinic – and do it the right way. I have some ideas…I’d love to run them by you….

  20. When do you think you might have the Opioid clinic class? I’m in the process of putting one together……would you like mine – maybe we can barter?

  21. Hello Justin Allan,
    Your posts are so positive and energetic!!! This is, “WHAT”, every new nurse practitioner needs to read and embrace. You are THE REAL DEAL, right? If you are, I truly appreciate it—since you offer a wealth of information from your blogs and educational options. I have yet to sign up, but definitely will weigh my options. Was going to join a membership through Empire Medical Training. Have you heard of them? Unfortunately, the package I want is over $5000.00+++!!! Plus, I would have to do in-person training: travel, transportation, and hotel costs are NOT included in the cost. OUCH!!! More lost money.

    I currently have, “Omaha Drip IV Health”. I have a LLC for this. Another unfortunate event, I signed up for this company through a business man in Kansas City (no medical background whatsoever—he is just making all the cash). I have to order through his pharmacy and pay shipping costs…since I live 3 hours away. For example, one IV Hangover drip costs me $50.00 for the bag, $9.00 for IV kit (tubing is extra), and $20.00 for shipping. I can order up to 8 bags for the $20.00 shipping charge. The patient pays me $135.00. May make $50.00 infusing the patient. Oh, Iforgot that we come to the patient: drive time and infusion time!!! So I can order one bag or 8 bags for the same shipping rate. Unfortunately, I am not definitive about which cocktails I will need over the next 30 days(if I was to stock-up)…so then they expire, some after two weeks. Then I suffer a huge loss, but the owner is still ahead. 🙁 This angers me. The margins are NOT good.

    You may ask, “Why did you sign-up for this”? I wanted my own business and was NOT educated on my options. I feel like I was mislead. But after reading your blogs, posts, and websites…I feel I may have other options. Would I need to recreate a new LLC if I rename the business? I think going through Wyoming for the LLC is optimal. Our lawyer friend helped me create the LLC I have now.

    Please let me know what you think. I would love to do IV Infusions, stem cell injections (another long story…was going to start with “Definitive Wellness” doing injections at $100.00 per person, NOT injection—DEFINITELY felt mislead), and BioTE or hormone therapy for women and men. BioTE training is $2500.00, but they so-called offer $35,000 of marketing and resources??? Any advice???

    Thank you for listening. Eager to hear what you think. I am certainly a hot mess…but want better.

    Robyn Rafter, MSN, APRN, FPNP-BC

    1. Robyn,

      Listen, we all make mistakes when we first start our businesses… It is NO BIG DEAL! Drop that LLC and form another one, get out from underneath this shark IMMEDIATELY! You can do IV infusions with much better margins going out on your own.

      I recommend forming an LLC in WY, it is simple, easy, and offers fantastic protections.

      BioTe is a scam… The training is overpriced and they take 40-50% off the top of every pellet you insert. Did you know you can get those same pellets from a compounding pharmacy for practically pennies on the dollar? You can learn how to do these yourself, IT IS NOT HARD!

      You can start any practice you want on yourself. You do not need to pay THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of dollars on training. It is a waste of money and the people that charge this are SHARKS. Take an Elite NP course, buy a book, and watch some YouTube videos. Save yourself the money.

  22. Thank you so so so much for this advice!!! It is much appreciated.
    Do you offer a deal if I take the IV drip, stem cell, and hormone courses? I would need to take the IV course so I know that I am doing things correctly—business wise, of course. 🙂

  23. Hello,
    I am interested in forming an LLC in Wyoming. I was wondering when creating a business name, should I take anything into consideration? I know it would be a good idea to leave my name out of it but anything else? I am an NP in Texas and was recently hired as an independent contractor (1099) and looking into options and benefits of forming an LLC.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Deanna,

      The name does not matter. I literally have an LLC that is nothing but random numbers. If you are forming this LLC strictly for a 1099 position, then just name it something generic, it does not matter! If you plan on opening a practice or something in the future, then name it something similar to what you envision the name being.

      Thanks for your comment!

  24. I have 8 years of open heart surgery with Icu experience and 2years cardiology experience. I am very interested in starting my own practice

    1. Then you have the experience to back up practicing independently in your own small niche side practice! You can do this, the most important step is just getting started!

  25. Hi Justin,

    I graduated last year as an FNP and I am currently working for a health insurance company doing health risk assessments (with a collaborating MD) NYC. I am interested in opening a pain management clinic down the line. What is your advice on what I should do now to prepare for that? My current job does not involve prescribing at all, but it’s a nice paying job with minimal hours. However, I know that I probably need a fuller experience to practice independently in the future (I believe I need 2 years of experience before I can go independent). Should I go directly into a pain management clinic and work there, or should I get some experience at an urgent care center/primary care clinic? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for this site! Have a great day!

  26. Good morning Justin! I completed the IV infusion course 2 weeks ago, thank you for organizing this. I also own a psych NP private practice, I already have space and some money put aside to get going. I am really overwhelmed by the administrative end of things; to add salt to injury, I am in the process of transitioning from sole proprietor LLC to an corporation. My business is in Boston, any advise in terms of whether I should add the IV nutrition to the current practice (practice takes insurance and self pay), or open a whole new s-corp for this will be appreciated. I have a meeting with my attorney, that said it will be great to show up prepared and articulate my needs clearly.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Susan! I am glad you enjoyed the IV course! To answer your question, I say just add it to your current practice if you are stretched thin. I always recommend starting a separate practice to truly market that service line and make it “unique” but with everything going on, I say just add it as a service line to your established practice and just market the hell out of it. If you decide to do it separately, then just do the LLC with an s-corp election.

  27. I finished the Stem Cell course and am working my way through the peptides and IV therapy courses. Super excited I purchased and am already looking into the HRT courses.

    What are your thoughts on a Ketamine infusion therapy for depression, etc course?

    1. Awesome Traci! Well I hope that these have been beneficial for you!

      Yes, I have considered the idea of a Ketamine Course. I am in the process of finding an NP who has experience with this to collaborate with developing a course, as I have with multiple Elite NP courses.

  28. Been up all night reading your blogs and information – needless to say – inspired! I completed my FNP and will take boards soon. In a state that requires a collaborator – contacted you about that already. As I study for boards and search for a collaborator, can I pursue the telemedicine in another state or some other form of business to create an income stream? Background includes, certifications in Functional Medicine, Wound Care, Clinical nutrition, manual therapies, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, NLP and some course work in homeopathy. I have several affiliate accounts with supplements and products I want to promote through my website, facebook and practice in the future. Interested in the IV Infusion clinic and other services (testosterone, pain management, etc) once I set up a practice, but what do you recommend in the meantime? Can I set up a consult with you?

    1. Greetings Cheryl!

      Very exciting, congrats on graduating and good luck with your boards.

      You can start a telemedicine in the mean time. Get licensed in other full practice authority states. Just be aware that you need to have a budget to market, so keep that in mind. This is all covered in the telemedicine course. I think focusing on functional medicine and nutrition for telemedicine could work, you just need to identify a specific target market. Be sure to review all the marketing articles.

      If you would like to consult, I would be more than happy to help you. Shoot me an email at if you want to set that up.

  29. Hello Everyone! I am trying to find a collaborating MD in Florida for a small cash pay clinic that sees less than 100 people per month online. I would appreciate any help on this. I just received a independent practice license and am a FNP and PMHNP. Your collaborator site is down TIA

  30. Could a PMHNP (without non-psych certification such as FNP) benefit from your program despite the obvious differences in allowable practice scope? Thanks!

    1. Absolutely! Most of these niche services could be issued for mental health issues. For example, testosterone replacement therapy in men improves anxiety and depression.

  31. I signed up for this course and listened to it … now it’s making me re watch everything because it wasn’t marked complete ? I’m just trying to find the resource page to move forward with insurance

    1. Melissa,

      We made a change on our course platform that requires people to select “Complete and Continue” at the top of each module as people were not pressing this button to move forward in their course to receive the certification at the end. Simply watch this video for steps on how to fix the issue. It is very simple:
