Starting Your Own Business As A Nurse

Sometimes trying to fit into people's expectations can stifle your creativity and rob you of your innovative capabilities. There are so many opportunities for innovation in healthcare and in innovative businesses that solve problems, and all it takes is for you as a nurse to believe that you are the one that needs to do it. Don't let the lie you are not good enough, smart enough, or influential hold you back from starting your business. Any nurse can do it, you can do it, and it doesn't have to look like what someone else is doing it.  Each of us has unique talents, solutions, and abilities that we bring to the table on many levels.
