NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 06/15/2018
Renee Thompson, DNP, RN, CMSRN, has received the prestigious CSP® designation from the National Speaker’s Association. Renee is one of only twenty-six nurses in the world to have this designation. The NNBA is fortunate to count among our membership, several of those twenty-six nurses! And awesome news for Donna Cardillo, RN, MA, CSP®; Donna is being inducted this November into the American Academy of Nursing as a Fellow and will add FAAN after her name. Congratulations Donna and Renee!
The NNBA Nurse Entrepreneurship & Career Alternatives Conference is only 4 months away! Registrations keep coming in so be sure to contact the Westgate Resort & Casino to reserve your rooms at the special discounted rate for the NNBA. Make reservations online by using the dedicated website available for NNBA participants https://aws.passkey.com/go/SNNB8R. We were there earlier this week looking at the beautiful rooms for the breakouts and main sessions.

I want to remind NNBA members that there are two benefits that you should be taking advantage of, the web page presence page link https://nnbanow.com/web-presence-form/ and submitting your events on the calendar of events. This is additional advertising and marketing for you, and your business. Thousands of NNBA website visitors are able to learn more about you and what you do. These two benefits alone are worth more than double the $149.00 membership!
All the sponsor packages for the conference are sold out except for the Gold Level and there is limited space available for an exhibitor’s table. This will be closing soon.

The first article of interest below is 9 Top Book Marketing Takeaways from Book Expo 2018 for the many nurse authors in our community. Marketing is important to a book’s success.

And I just had to wrap the articles up with something different. Summer is the time for entertaining, especially in the backyard. Best Big Batch Summer Cocktails is on my summer bucket list. These drinks look healthy, delicious and refreshing; let me know if you try one!
