“Nurse Next Door’s discovery process was very thorough and transparent. Not only did I have access to anyone on the team including Senior Management to learn from and ask questions; I also had access to talk to any of the Franchise Partners. Training week at HeartQuarters was energetic and fun and provided great “in the field” experience to prepare me for being a Franchise Owner.” - Christopher Peacock, (Nurse Next Door Sarasota, FL)
