Dear Nurses,

Every new adventure begins with the first step! We are currently coordinating our annual educational conference on nurse entrepreneurship, which is always an exciting adventure. This year even more so  because of the pandemic’s influence of what we are seeing in emerging business opportunities for entrepreneurial nurses. For example, nurses with safety and quality control backgrounds, prevention of infection, or patient and staff safety and wellness, are all areas of nursing consultant services that are in high demand. Our conference provides nurse with the current information on what methods and media works best to share their message. We love introducing new speakers and providing massive-value and actionable content to the growing ranks of nurse entrepreneurs. Mark your calendars for September 24th – 26th for NNBA 2021 Virtual Conference. Registration will open in April!

Julia fell in love with her Community Health Nursing Clinical and knew she wanted to make this area her specialty. She loved the impact that nurses in the community had on patients who had no or little access to health care in the rural upstate NY area. She was intrigued by the difference nurse’s made in patients’ lives. She then graduated and started her nursing career at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. She worked on a medical surgical telemetry unit to ensure she gained a solid foundation in clinical Nursing. Julia then entered into Community Health Nursing by accepting her first home care job offer as a Case Manager in a Certified Home Care Agency. There she learned the fundamentals of Public Health Nursing and Medicare/Medicaid. It didn’t take her long before she climbed the corporate ladder in management. Julia served as a RN Director of Patient Services in New York City for several years. After working long hours and being continuously on call, Julia decided she would use her expertise to serve as a Home Care Consultant in the NY area. She left her full-time job and there Emmanuel Consulting was born.
