Nurses Questions Answered – Entrepreneurship and Nurses in Business

Nurses, have you wondered how you could start your own business? How to create and take a product to the marketplace? How to create and build a business plan? How social media can boost your business? How to get a million dollars in free publicity? How to increase your net worth with elder care services? How to build a successful business being a legal nurse consultant? How to be an independent case manager and consultant? How to successfully network and build your personal brand? How to become a speaker for fun & profit? How to follow-up with clients and gain referrals? What is the power in podcasting and how blogging can build your business? These questions and more will be answered at NNBA’s 2016 Nurse Entrepreneurship and Career Alternatives Conference, October 14-16th at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

We share, with nurses from all over the country, massive value on topics presented by acclaimed nationally recognized nurse speakers, business experts and nurse entrepreneurs. You save time and money by attending to get all this information and network contacts pulled together for you. 
You subscribed to the National Nurses in Business Association’s Newsletter for a reason. We provide valuable business information customized for nurses and up-to-date insight into industry needs for RN business services, as well as offer mentoring and continued education in your career development. We provide nurses with knowledge and tools to meet your entrepreneurial goals and connect you to an extensive network of colleagues and resources to help you navigate your journey to success.

Please join us, nurses just like you from all over the country in Las Vegas (Rooms need booked by September 20th to receive the NNBA group discount rate of $89). I look forward to seeing many old friends and making new ones during the NNBA reception in the “Crown Room” Friday evening; a great way to kick off the conference!
