The tech entrepreneur: Katrina Anderson, CEO and Co-Founder

What is the name of the company and/or product?

ClinicianNexus can be found at cliniciannexus.com, on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

What distinct problem does this solve for who and how does this create value for them?

With increased reliance on nurse practitioner (NP) and physician assistant’s (PA) contributions to our future of healthcare system, clinical training sites and schools work diligently to fill this demand through education. NP and PA students need 500-1000 hours of clinical experience in several different settings, but the current technology does not support the need to find providers to train with or track their experience. In addition, the time and energy required to onboard a student can be so great that some clinics simply do not offer training.  ClinicianNexus considers all stakeholders involved with this demand and we are building a software platform that will simplify matching, communication and tracking of clinical rotations.
