NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 08/15/2018
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the single largest payer for healthcare in the United States. I’m a big believer in our ability to “follow the money” so I have included our first article of interest about the proposed changes to the CMS rule and what it means to telehealth. Communication technology will have additional reimbursement codes letting us know that services in the telehealth space are being expanded. In the Nurse Business Insider Tip, I include how you can be knowledgeable about the financial legislation coming down the road.
Would you like to launch or expand your own speaking business and master the art, science, and business of professional speaking? You will learn that and more in Donna Cardillo’s Speak with Style for Fun and Profit. Nurses have so much expertise to share – and need to be able to present themselves with polish and clarity. Pat Iyer’s So You Need to Write, How to Write Like a Pro! will take you by the hand to guide you through writing principles that affect everything you write. According to the Harvard Business Review, the #1 criteria for advancement and promotion of professionals is the ability to communicate effectively. So you will not want to miss Donna’s and Pat’s valuable workshops!

Networking for Introverts, the Shy and Socially Anxious is one of the best articles I’ve read on networking that gives practical advice. We can all use a little extra income and that is why 80 Ideas for Making Books with Your Creative Skills is so fantastic. I’ve completed a few of the ideas and look forward to attempting even more. Isn’t is fun when you see ideas to learn things you never thought of before that you can see yourself doing? That is what so many nurses tell me about attending our conference. Being exposed to so many ideas, and nurse business owner’s best practices is inspiring and motivating for so many. Remember, conference pricing goes up next month, so register now! NNBA 2018 Nurse Entrepreneurship & Career Alternatives Conference is 58 days away. Thank you to all the nurses that have already registered for the conference, we look forward to seeing you soon!
