This past week I had an experience that highlights the benefits of social media and having so many nurses following the NNBA Facebook page. I received a phone call from a gentleman that told me he was looking for nursing services for his wife during an upcoming trip. He didn’t know where to turn and then found the National Nurses in Business Association and called. After a wonderful conversation I told him I would use my social media channels and put the information out there. The response was amazing; thank you! The client sent me a follow-up email thanking me for getting involved and using my social network. This family now can go on a trip and have lifetime memories. By the way their trip is planned for the Fourth of July…perfect timing to highlight an independent nurse that will be with them on their trip!

Nurse Business Insider Tip         by Michelle Podlesni
Where Nurses in Business will share an insider tip that may benefit other nurses in different stages of business development.
Florence Nightingale Knew Her Numbers! (Be sure to check out the Article of Interest below)
Do you know your numbers? Key performance Indicators? Gross Sales Revenue? Net Sales Revenue? Operating Profit? Cost per Unit Sold?

Florence Nightingale knew her numbers and as a result was able to graphically display statistics to persuade people for the dire need for improved sanitary conditions for England’s soldiers. Persuasive infographics are important but only if you have the info. What data do you store that lets you know what your cost of business is? When taking on a new service, have you done a cost/benefit analysis? When you invest in a program or product have you determined what your Return on Investment (ROI) would be?

Keeping business statistics, analyzing them and determining productive goals will provide nurses business owners the security in knowing future goals are attainable and ultimately profitable, and will allow you to move forward as Florence did, to help more people!

Best Nursing Career Advice From Leaders in the Industry

Creating a Better Elderly Healthcare System in America

Soar to Success
Florence Nightingale’s Infographics Were Better Than Most Today

Atlas Obscura
Ask a nurse you admire how they got to where they are and more often than not, they'll point to a mentor or preceptor who helped them along the way.

Advice from someone who has overcome the challenges that go along with being a nurse can be invaluable in helping you succeed.

We asked 30 influential nurse leaders to share some of their best career advice for our readers. Here's what they said.
Stella Nsong has “Soared to Success” as a columnist, mentor, consultant, speaker and trainer. She developed a nursing and healthcare service from scratch to help aging adults receive the expert care they need, plus her company provides opportunities for nurses looking to build their own businesses. She also writes, consults and speaks extensively in the healthcare industry.
The famed nurse was also an early practitioner of marshaling statistics to advance social causes.

WHEN SOMEONE MENTIONS FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE, who was born this week in 1820, one particular image likely comes to mind: A caring presence, head covered by a shawl, holding a lamp as she ministers to patients in the dark. The “Lady with the Lamp,” as she was known, still serves as a symbol for nurses everywhere.
