APP Mission Statement

Educating and providing high quality, patient-centered healthcare

The Advanced Practice Providers at Hennepin Healthcare advocate for, educate, and provide high quality, patient-centered healthcare to diverse populations while helping to develop current and future healthcare professionals.

The APP Professional Center

A growing APP workforce

Developed in 2013 as a result of a growing APP workforce and the need for increased support and advocacy, the APP Center stands as a centralized department dedicated to the 300+ APPs at Hennepin Healthcare.

Located on R7 room 202, the center is open 24/7 to all advanced practice providers. Similar to a lounge, it has a number of amenities that are exclusive to APPs. This serves as a unique and relaxing environment for APPs to enjoy between clinical responsibilities. It is also home to the APP director and APP manager.

Functions of the APP Center include:

  • Orientation and onboarding of newly hired APPs.
  • Recruitment of new APPs and retention of employed APPs.
  • Placement of all APP student rotations.
  • Oversight of APP compensation.
  • Privileging and credentialing of APPs.
  • Administration of APP performance metrics and scorecards while overseeing productivity and quality.
  • APP comportment.
  • Promoting the APP role and scope of practice in an effort to optimize utilization of APPs.
  • Participating in organizational strategic planning initiatives.
  • Providing mentorship and professional development for APPs.
  • Representing an APP perspective on committees and in key policy decisions.
