Cathy Lanzalaco – Nurse Entrepreneur’s Exchange Video Interview
Nurse Entrepreneur’s Exchange are interviews covering how nurses become nurse entrepreneurs and how nurses succeed in business. The name is attributed to the grassroots newsletter that evolved into the founding of the NNBA in 1985. The NNBA was and continues as the only professional nursing organization that is dedicated to the independent practice of nursing through entrepreneurial models.
NNBA member interviews are moving accounts of dreams, opportunities, challenges, and triumphs. In a spirit of trust and generosity nurse entrepreneurs shared their experiences with me during these interviews. Nurses will find confidence, motivation, and inspiration in their stories of transforming their careers through entrepreneurship.
