New Venue
We will be announcing a new venue for NNBA’s Nurse Entrepreneurship Educational Conference because the Riviera plans to implode prior to our rocking it down at our 30th anniversary! Seriously, the NNBA couldn't come up with the $191 million plus for the property so the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has bought the landmark hotel. The Riviera is closing on May 2, 2015. This means we will have new digs for the conference and I will be announcing the new venue in the next couple weeks!

Keynote Address
The announcement of Dr. Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio kicking off our conference with her keynote presentation “Making a Million in Nursing” is generating a lot of excitement. One of the most successful nurse entrepreneurs ever, Laura was a past president of the NNBA. Educator extraordinaire; she has been a role model and mentor to thousands of nurses. Thanks for your emails!

What I am about to share with you could completely turn your business around and have wealth managers chasing you to help invest the many dollars you are putting into your account.

    How To Name Your Business | Entrepreneur

    What's in a name? A lot, when it comes to small-business success. The right name can make your company the talk of the town. The wrong one can doom it to obscurity and failure. Ideally, your name should convey the expertise, value and uniqueness of the product or service you have developed.
    Some experts believe that the best names are abstract, a blank slate upon which to create an image. Others think that names should be informative so customers know immediately what your business is. Some believe that coined names (that come from made-up words) are more memorable than names that use real words. Others think they're forgettable.
    In reality, any name can be effective if it's backed by the appropriate marketing strategy. Here's what you'll need to consider in order to give your small business the most appropriate and effective name.

    Harvard Study Unveils Meditation’s Effect On the Brain | CE

    Numerous studies have indicated the many physiological benefits of meditation, and the latest one comes from Harvard University.
    An eight week study conducted by Harvard researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) determined that meditation literally rebuilds the brains grey matter in just eight weeks. It’s the very first study to document that meditation produces changes over time in the brain’s grey matter. (1)
    Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day. This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing.” – (1) Sara Lazar of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and a Harvard Medical School Instructor in Psychology.   Read More

    Jan Lee
    RN, Certified Hypnotist

    Jan Lee is a Certified Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists.  She is also a Psychiatric RN with over 25 years experience.  She has always been interested in how the mind affects our health. It makes sense that she chose psychiatric nursing as a career.

    Hypnosis is her passion and grew out of the realization that traditional medicine often ignores the power of the MIND. Wake up in the morning and think a positive thought over and will set your day on the right track- a simple but powerful action.

    She was drawn to Hypnosis 20 years ago when an employer offered an inservice on the process. The experience of being hypnotized was dynamic for her and no doubt, INSPIRATION was planted. It just took a long time for her to realize her passion, her niche!

    Alternative medicine is about "thinking outside the box."
    Hypnosis is a safe natural way to get past the busy CONSCIOUS MIND and access the receptive quiet SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.  The SUBCONSCIOUS MIND is home to our memories, habits, quirks, automatic behaviors. Positive suggestions will take hold in this "child-like" part of our minds and change will occur. A kind of brain "rewiring" takes place and healthy habits replace the unhealthy. Hypnosis is a path to positivity, balance..for life!

    Imagine a busy highway... cars merging, braking, speeding. Let this represent your CONSCIOUS MIND. If you could bypass that mess, you would, right?  You want to arrive at your destination.  HYPNOSIS is the bypass, the way around this chaos (your CONSCIOUS MIND)...the way to your destination, a peaceful place (your SUBCONSCIOUS MIND).

    Jan is your everyday person on a great adventure of using HYPNOSIS to help you improve your life. She will be your guide, your teacher and your student.
