“I think this course is better than the NAMS provider manual. I think if you want to take the NAMS test this class is a must. The book does not provide how to prescribe as you did. I am a certified provider since Oct. and after this course, I finally feel confident to prescribe MHT and HRT!”

Mandy L Corvino, FNP-BC, NCMP

“Absolutely, I would recommend to a colleague! I particularly found Heather’s enthusiasm contagious and her style of evidence-based teaching highly effective. Through the FB group, I was able to expand my referral network. The ongoing support and feedback are invaluable, especially with respect to challenging cases.”

Ann Boss CNM, APN, NCMP

“This will definitely help me feel prepared. I’ve applied to take the test June 2024. I have taken the NAMS basic course so far and plan to watch the 2023 conference. This was more practical, more useful for things like how do I actually write that in an Rx type of thing. It was also a more concise summary of some of the literature for a quick refresh.”

Dr. J Davis
