NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 01/15/2018
It’s hard to believe the holidays were just a couple of weeks ago. There are so many exciting things going on that this is definitely a back to work newsletter! NNBA membership continues to grow and that is credited to many of you who see the benefit of being part of the #1 Nurse Business Owner Network! NNBA’s event calendar is full of continued education opportunities from Aesthetic Training, to a Case Managers Cruise. Did you see Donna Cardillo’s upcoming webcast? https://nnbanow.com/event/webcast-10-strategies-building-resilience/. We can all use strategies to build our resilience and continue to provide more value to our communities.
We’re announcing #NNBA2018 Call for Speakers. The deadline for submission is February 4th. The link is here: https://nnbanow.com/call-speakers-2018/ . Please read it thoroughly, because the format is changing to appeal to even more nurses. We are expecting over two hundred nurses and many of our sponsor packages have already sold out!
Please join me in welcoming Tim Raderstorf, MSN, RN, to NNBA’s Advisory Board. Many of you know Tim from his very popular NNBA conference session on building your pitch, and perfecting your plan. Tim is the Founder & CEO of Quality Health Communications as well as a Clinical Instructor of Practice and DNP student at Ohio State University College of Nursing. Tim’s true passion is in the development of novel commercial innovations to enhance patient outcomes.
Save the Dates – October 12-14, 2018! Las Vegas, Nevada, the entertainment capital of the world, is the location of next year’s conference. Join over two hundred nurses from all over the country in discovering the latest trends, opportunities, and take-a-ways in entrepreneurship. The conference hashtag is #NNBA2018. Stay tuned at our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/nnbanow/ as we release information and registration dates.
Healthcare Becomes US Largest Employer: 6 Take-a-Ways, is the first article of interest below. Please note to #5 and #6. The majority of new healthcare jobs are not in clinical roles, and Eldercare is the market category that will see the most growth. Next, is a great read from NNBA member Brittney Wilson, 3 Ways that Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants are Leading Healthcare Innovation. I agree with Brittney, as more NPs and PAs are in practices, the more innovation will happen each day. Brittney does an excellent job of outlining how this will happen. When you read the last article, How to Write a Cover Letter, try to think outside the box. Give consideration on how else these suggestions could be used, such as writing a proposal, introducing yourself in networking settings, and pitching an idea.
Have a great week ahead; I look forward to sharing our speakers and topics for #NNBA2018!
