Dear Nurses,

Do you sometimes feel like you have entered a time machine? Two articles this past week made me feel like I was shipped to both ends of the spectrum.The Medscape publishing of the Nurse Career Satisfaction Report for 2018 made me feel like I was shipped to the past. How many studies and surveys do we need to know that nurses are there for the patients, not the politics and administration? Enough already. Then, I was shipped to the future with Becker’s report on Amazon Selling Hospital Rooms. I believe in a day, not far from now, where nursing will be provided independently, more as it was originally. I’m excited about the future of the nursing profession. Nurses will advance to the forefront of the healthcare marketplace by their continued development of services, programs, and products that solve issues for healthcare consumers. For over thirty years the NNBA has been dedicated to nurses starting, growing and managing their own businesses. It's great seeing the next generation of innovative and influential nurses joining and participating in our growth.

Have you ever wondered if people even care about your writing?

You pour out your heart and soul, but sometimes that feels like shouting your words down a bottomless abyss.

You know you have a world of knowledge to pass on – but you have no idea how to wrap it into an exciting package your readers will love.

Could it be that … your writing just isn’t engaging enough?
Social media has evolved as an important communication channel for brands.
