President's Corner
After reading two significant reports in the Department of Health and Human Services and Nursing Economics, I am convinced that there is going to be significant growth in nurse entrepreneurship during the next decade. In 1980, over 66% of all employed RNs worked in hospitals and today 58% of RNs work in hospitals. There is considerable legislation occurring giving nurses more opportunities in business such as Connecticut becoming the 18th state to allow NP independent practices. Healthcare Reform has caused a proliferation of (HIT) Health Information Technology companies to create new systems and software. As a result, there is a great need for translation of medical information from the programmers to the providers and on to the patients. In one of the articles of interest below you will read about a franchise catering to the explosive senior market. This aging of society is global. Speaking of global, the Medical Tourism industry is also having explosive growth with employers contracting with the best care for the best dollars regardless of location.

This is a great time to be a nurse in business and participate in the NNBA. Our upcoming conference is going to provide high value information for nurses that want to take their businesses to the next level, as well as, for the nurses that are just starting in business and checking us out. We have several very successful nurse business owners that are professional speakers and leaders that are going to share invaluable information and examples. Go to NNBA’s website and click on the conference information to see an overview of the agenda and check out advertising and promotional opportunities. Make sure to save the dates of October 4-5, 2014 for NNBA's 29th Annual Conference!

All the best,
