NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 07/01/2018
Where nurses work has significantly changed over the past twenty-five years. Previously, 68% of nurses worked in a hospital setting. Today, that number is slightly above 50%.That means over 1.5 million nurses work in settings other than hospitals. These nurses are in alternative healthcare career settings, business owners, or nurse entrepreneurs. NNBA’s Nurse Entrepreneurship and Career Alternatives annual educational conference shares valuable information on options for nurses today. NNBA is an organization that is dedicated to promoting and expanding the role of nurses in business by:
- Encouraging nurse entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to develop, grow, own or manage their own businesses.
- Developing opportunities locally and nationally for nurses in business
- Serving the networking and educational needs of its members.
