OUR STORY

Charlene Platon and Liliana Bogin are a duo of board-certified Family Nurse Practitioners based on the West Coast of the United States. Despite the rising momentum and popularity of Nurse Practitioner (NP) programs, they both found that while going through their NP journeys, there were few online and in-person resources to help them along the way. After fatefully crossing paths, Charlene and Liliana joined forces and set out on a mission to help prospective and new graduate NPs navigate the challenging obstacles involved in the NP path.


Our Mission

NP for Me is the ultimate resource to help you on your own Nurse Practitioner journey, whether it's contemplating on starting, or working your first NP job. Not sure where to begin? We got you from point A to point B.


Who We Are

Charlene-Platon-Portrait1 (1).jpg

Charlene Platon was born into a family of nurses. As a result, she received her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing Science degree at University of California, Irvine. Several years later, Charlene returned to her alma mater to obtain her Master's of Science in Nursing Science degree in the Family Nurse Practitioner concentration. During the entirety of her nursing career, Charlene found herself in unique career opportunities that inspired her passion for quality and process improvement within health systems. Today, she works as a manager for advanced practice providers within a large health system.

Despite the wealth of exciting and unconventional opportunities she was granted, Charlene admits that the road wasn't easy. After a series of hiccups, trial and error (and a bit of luck), she was able to move forward in her career. Nevertheless, she realized the importance and significance of a support system for nurse practitioners and nursing professionals who were just embarking on their own journeys.

Charlene's goal is to help NP students and current professionals find their true north and succeed.

Liliana Bogin graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor's of Science in Public Health and went on to get her Master's in Nursing at Seattle University to become a nurse practitioner. Throughout undergraduate and graduate school, Liliana provided guidance for students completing their college applications. Since graduating from NP school, Liliana has been practicing as a family and urgent care nurse practitioner based in Seattle, Washington.

After her unsuccessful attempt at admission to the University of Washington nursing program, Liliana decided to shift her approach. Instead of completing applications as a hopeful nurse, she approached them as a business woman. This altered mindset allowed her to present herself as a complete package for her next round of applications. With essentially the same qualifications, she found herself admitted to top nurse practitioner programs across the country, including Yale, Columbia, Boston College, Emory, and Seattle University.

It is Liliana's goal to help clients find success and feel supported as they navigate the application process, using her own experience as a guide.

Do you have a question about NP for Me that you would like to be answered? If so, please Contact Us and we will get back to you as soon as possible with a response. Our goal is post our most frequently asked questions on this page.

 

This is a huge investment for me. What happens if I do not enjoy the service? Can I get a refund?

Our NP for Me consultants created this platform to help you achieve your Nurse Practitioner goals. For that reason, we are committed to resolving any issues that may come our way. Just contact your consultant at yourfriends@npforme.org if you have any problems.

Which video chat platforms are used for scheduled sessions?

Your scheduled sessions may be done via video chat. If so, your consultant may use either Skype or Google Hangouts to conduct the session. This information will be discussed with you prior to your scheduled session.

What platform may I use to purchase services provided by NP for Me?

NP for Me is in the beta testing phase for its services. That being said, we currently use Venmo to make transactions for services we provide. Venmo is a mobile app that you can download for free. If you do not have this app, you may sign up by visiting their site or downloading the app on your phone.

What will happen if I am late to my scheduled NP for Me session?

If a client is late to a scheduled NP for Me coaching session, the session will only run until the scheduled end time, and the client will be charged at the full price for the session. Additionally, the client's information and service fees must be received by the designated NP for Me consultant at least 24 hours before the session to allow the client to maintain their scheduled session time. If the session is canceled (or a client fails to show up) with less than 24 hours’ notice, the client will be responsible for paying the full session fee.

May I cancel a scheduled NP for Me session?

Yes, clients may cancel an NP for Me session at any time. However, any cancellations for an individualized coaching session made less than 24 hours before the scheduled service will not qualify for a refund. Please contact yourfriends@npforme.org with any questions regarding the cancellation policy.
