NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 08/01/2018
It’s no wonder why entrepreneurship is growing in the nursing profession. I spoke with three nurse leaders this week that have been downsized and displaced because, their roles were consolidated into one position. I’ve written a good deal about the increase in merger and acquisition activity, and the continued corporatization of healthcare. Major players such as Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and Walmart are gearing up for major disruptions to the healthcare marketplace. Nurses need to keep themselves marketable, and one of the best ways is to attend our annual educational conference on entrepreneurship. Be empowered by surrounding yourself with savvy nurse business owners with diverse backgrounds, passions and pursuits. Have candid conversations, provocative thinking, innovative business ideas and how-to-solutions. Have your challenges, concerns, and questions addressed in this one-of-a-kind event. Register for this affordable conference here: Nurse Entrepreneurship & Career Alternatives Conference, October 12-14th at the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas!

That is why I am so excited for nurses to learn about case management and patient advocacy from the best. Anne Llewellyn and Deanna Gillingham are providing an amazing workshop that looks at the emerging roles of case management and patient advocacy for nurse entrepreneurs.
