Nurses Need a Plan B

After the M & A Nurses Need a Plan B
This is important news for close to two million nurses; Hospital merger & acquisition transactions continue to accelerate. 52 transactions took place in the first half of this year alone and we are only at the beginning of August. Having been through several (8) mergers and acquisitions; I can tell you that it never resulted in retaining all the staff. That is why I am so passionate about nurses attending #NNBA2016 conference on Nurse Entrepreneurship & Career Alternatives this October. Nurses will learn how to gain competitive advantage and discover multiple marketable income streams to augment their nursing career. Veteran nurse business owners are able to expand their offerings and develop valuable partnerships with aligned nurse business owners. All nurses will be able to expand their network and experience the positive energy of being around like-minded nurses from all over the country.

Hospital administrators are doing what they have to do to remain competitive whether it is becoming behemoth corporations or reconfiguring their facilities to address revenues that could be made outside the acute care phase of the healthcare continuum. This is placing a great deal of pressure on the already overextended nurse work force. CNOs are being asked to create new roles for nursing professionals that didn’t previously exist in the hospital environment. There is great opportunity for Nurses in business that are Independent Nurse Advocates and Independent Case Managers that have already built successful business models.
