NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 11/01/2020
The past two weeks have been filled with exciting developments from nurses in business! Several businesses have been launched since the conference: two in eldercare, two in legal nurse consulting, one
in education, and two nurses launched services and programs in health and wellness. Many more are in the planning stages, so 2021 will see nurses increasing the ranks of entrepreneurship. Many established business owners told me that the conference gave them incredible ideas for expanding their services. They are planning additional offerings after they learned of new markets that they were not aware of. Two nurses that have founded successful businesses for over ten years, are looking at exit strategies including the possible sale of their businesses. These potential financial opportunities results from their efforts and years of hard work. We also had a couple of members that applied for ANA’s Innovation Awards program from reading about it in our last newsletter. We say it over and over, it is an exciting time to be a nurse!

As the demand for caregiving rises with an aging population, there is so much opportunity for public and private sectors to work together to develop solutions to support family caregivers and those under their care.
