NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 02/15/2018
I want to thank every nurse who entered proposals for our Nurse Entrepreneur & Career Alternatives annual educational conference. This year we had over forty-five entries! Nurse entrepreneurship is growing, and is increasingly popular due to many factors influencing the nursing profession. This is the conference to discover, explore and expand upon hundreds of ideas using your nursing knowledge and life experience in business!
LeAnn Thieman, author of the New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for Nurses Soul series, is now collecting stories for her third edition of SelfCare for HealthCare™. Send your story written the best you can with all the details, and LeAnn will take it from there! Be sure to put your full name, and contact information on your submission. If your story is selected, a fee of $200 will be paid. Email your story to LeAnn@LeAnnThieman.com; write “My Story” in the subject line. Deadline March 15, 2018! Good luck nurses and we are looking forward to LeAnn’s keynote address at our conference October 12-14th in Las Vegas!
An important reminder! NNBA Members Web Page: NNBA members can have their own web page to promote themselves and their business. Business owners that have a website will benefit from backlinks to your site, increasing your SEO. For nurses that don’t have a website, a web presence is a must in today’s digital age. Check out the directory here for examples: https://nnbanow.com/web/. This benefit alone is worth more than double the cost of membership. Just fill out the Web Presence Application form, and within 5 business days, your webpage will be up!
