NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 01/01/2020
Happy New Year! 2020 promises to be an exciting year for nurses. While the World Health Organization declared it the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, the NNBA has been dedicated to advancing and promoting nurses roles in business every year since 1985. Nurse autonomy, flexibility, and financial freedom is something we rally around, and will continue to for 2020 and beyond! If you have ever thought about starting your own business, and amplifying your influence, make sure you are a member of the NNBA community of nurse entrepreneurs and business owners.
What are you looking forward to in 2020? Is this the year you author a book to share your message? Are you going to take your educational programs into hospitals and corporate settings? Are you going to advocate for increased diversity and health literacy to improve the world’s health and wellness? Are you going to create a business serving the elderly in your community? Are you creating online educational courses? Have you decided to learn more about telehealth and its major impact on how healthcare services are provided? Is 2020 the year that you continue the momentum of 2019 or is it a time to regroup?
Tabula Rasa means clean slate, and each New Year is a clean slate of personal and professional growth opportunities! For 2020, you can design your new year or your next decade. It is said that we over estimate what we can achieve in a year, and underestimate what we can achieve in ten years. Many nurses view NNBA’s annual educational conference on entrepreneurship and career alternatives as a launch point for designing their career over the next several years. The strategies and tactics learned, and the connections made with peers and successful business owners, give nurses resources they can trust as they pivot their careers into owning their own business. Place September 25-27th on your calendars for #NNBA2020 Conference. We have many special events are planned for NNBA’s 35th Anniversary.
