Nurses desire more autonomy, flexibility, financial compensation, and career satisfaction than is currently available to them inside a conventional setting. Founded in 1985 for this very reason, the NNBA supports nurses with the transition from employee to entrepreneur, mainly through education, mentoring, and networking.

32 Quotes About Positivity

When Qadirah Bridgeman was 22-years-old, retirement was the furthest thing from her mind.
