NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 04/15/2020
News on COVID-19 continues to evolve, and there are more encouraging outcomes being reported. There are increases in diagnostic testing, varied and available treatments, and changes to protocols that alleviate so much of the bureaucracy that slows innovation and advancement. Some of our colleagues are still in need of support, especially in the hot spots around the globe. The NNBA supports nurses having safe environments, and the ability to speak freely without fear of retaliation, enabling them to do the tremendous work they are doing to combat COVID-19.
NNBA nurse business owners are an extended community of patients, customers, employees,vendors and partners. Our first article of interest contains the notes from our April 6th conference call titled Nurses in Business: Adapting and Adjusting During COVID-19 where we gave strategies, tools, and tips to help our business owner community. Many NNBA members and non-members engaged with us during this call. We hope you find the notes helpful, and let us know if you have any questions by replying to this newsletter. Have you ever thought about How to Start a Blog? My UNconventional Nurse® website started as a blog in 2011 and I wished I had this information back then! The final article Prepare for the Ultimate Gaslighting* will give you pause and perhaps action we should take before the world returns to normal, or the new normal.
Looking to the future, we have been working on a brand new website that will carry the NNBA forward for several years. Most of the work will be seen within the Member’s Area, which has been completely transformed. Since the current site is an e-commerce, and membership website, the migration to the new URL is no small task. We are targeting the migration to occur by the end of April; however, due to this being a very complex task, this deadline could possibly slip a few days.
At that point in time, the Members Area of the NNBANow.com website will be taken off-line for several hours (the outer facing website will remain on-line). No one will be able to login to access the Members Area, and anybody logged in will be automatically logged out. Once the migration is completed and tested, we will be re-directing the NNBANow.com website to the new website’s URL. At that time, members will be able to access the new Members Area using your current credentials (username and password will not change). If you have your username and password to the NNBANow.com website saved in your browser, understand this will not function to log you in to the new website. You must know your current username and password, so you can login to the Members Area on the new website.
We will keep you posted on definitive dates and times. Our goal continues to be mission driven, and dedicated to the advancement and promotion of nurse entrepreneurship. If you have any questions, please let us know.
