An Introduction and Your Application Questionnaire
Your interest in this new role of RN Patient Advocates clearly demonstrates that you are
a leader, a nurse able to grasp the larger picture and willing to change the care dynamic
patient by patient.
RN Patient Advocates, PLLC, and its partner, the University of Arizona’s College of
Nursing, have created the national Learning Intensive that will provide you with
expertise in the Patient Advocacy Process © as well as in depth knowledge of the
business, legal, insurance and marketing skills you will need to begin your own private
practice as an independent RN Patient Advocate. There is an online component followed
by a residential component – immersion learning. Completion of this program will
ensure your place in the new paradigm of patient advocacy services. You will be at the
forefront of an emerging healthcare field – a pioneer setting the standard and paving the
way for other nurses to follow.
Upon completion of this course, you will become eligible to become a member of the
National RN Patient Advocate Network – a network that will link you with all the RN
Patient Advocates across the nation. Through every individual RN Patient Advocate’s
work as well as through the combined efforts within The Network we can begin to realize
our goal of changing the quality of healthcare in the US – patient by patient.
