Thank you for you emails, comments, and social media posts! There is a collective voice of nurses rising up from the #NNBA2019 Entrepreneurship Conference in Las Vegas! “Now is time for nurses to take the lead in reframing nurse’s role in the healthcare marketplace.” Our wonderful speakers went in-depth with strategies, best practices, how-tos, blueprints, hacks, and examples.So many nurses are saying no to the status quo, becoming re- energized and revitalized for their nursing’s career potential. Thank you nurses for being part of this unique conference that has time-tested results of helping thousands of nurse intrepreneurs and entrepreneurs start, grow, and manage their own business.

The NNBA helps nurses reconnect to their love of nursing. In our articles of interest below, Before You Leave Your Nursing Career shares how an outside view point can help you see. Remember, you can’t read the label from inside the jar. Marketing is vital to the health of your business. How to Create anAD is an excellent article outlining 10 specifics to know when creating your ad. I read everything I am able to on the future of healthcare. This Is What the Future of Health Looks Like is a quick but important read. Innovation in healthcare is all the buzz right now. Words like “rapid change” and “unprecedented opportunity” are being bantered about. The World Economic Forum is looking at immune oncology, gene therapy, personalized medicine, artificial intelligence, and wearable digital devices. Being aware of this allows you to have the entrepreneur perspective, opening up possibilities in your nursing business. For example, this autumn, life insurance provider John Hancock said it would offer its policyholders an Apple Watch for just $25. Many of these technology companies, big names and small names would benefit having nurses innovating, educating and instructing on wearables. On stage at NNBA’s 5th Shark Tank Competition, Rhonda Adams, DNP, RN I Clinical Informatics Analyst shared with our audience her design of a cardiac smart watch. These are very exciting areas of growth and healthcare delivery.
When you received your lightbulb at #NNBA2019, we wanted it to symbolize ideas. We know from experience that nurses leave the NNBA annual educational conference full of ideas. Keep us posted and ask us questions. If we don’t know the answer, we will help you find someone that does. As I said at the conference, “not every nurse here is an entrepreneur but every nurse has valuable knowledge and experience to help other nurses.” That’s what the NNBA community is about, nurses helping nurses to succeed in business. Our new hashtag is #NNBA2020 and make sure you have the dates, September 25-27th, 2020 on your calendar. We have a lot of very special things planned to celebrate NNBA’s 35th year in business!!
