Subject: NNBA Entrepreneur Highlights ~ Call for Speakers

President's Corner
November 1, 2021
Dear Nurses,

Have you ever thought about what nurses want, and why so many are choosing to have their careers coincide with entrepreneurship? I have the honor of speaking with many different nurses each week from all over the country, and I see five factors that are significant to nurses for their futures. They are autonomy, flexibility, passion, purpose, and legacy.
Many nurses simply desire to be their own boss. After working so many years for others, they discover a path to being their own boss. Nurses desire the flexibility to create their own schedule, the number of hours they work and the amount of time available for family and friends. Many are passionate about an aspect of healthcare that their current job or role will not allow them to fully express. Nurses know they can do better than is currently being done and it is their purpose to improve upon conventional approaches instead of 'it has always been done that way'. And nurses may be at a place in their career where they're looking at the legacy they will leave. Mentoring and continually contributing to healthcare and nursing feels essential.
No one anticipated that along with this pandemic would be the total upheaval and disruption of healthcare delivery systems and marketplaces. While challenging, we are inspired and motivated to create our future looking at the services, products, and programs that healthcare consumers need and we as nurses can provide. Be sure to check out NNBA’s member's doing just that below, plus opportunities and resources!

“Had the pleasure of meeting fellow author Lucie Dickinson and her daughter (also an author) last evening at an event to promote awareness for mental health. Lucie shared with me that after hearing me speak about my book Falling Together several years ago she was inspired to write her own book. This is why I do what I do and these are the moments I live for”
