I am interested in finding out how nurses begin this type of consulting service, what they offer, how they market, etc...anyone with any tidbits or resources to share, please do!
I'm excited when I hear about nurses in business for themselves and 'pulling their own strings'!:roll
I, too, am interested in any ideas about specializing in patient advocacy! I am thinking in terms of applying my RN skills and experience in working with patients and families who are dealing with major issues such as Cancer, end of life, Lupus, multiple disease processes, etc. A true advocate would act as a "central clearing house" of sorts, coordinating medical care and prescriptions, explaining "Dr. talk", answering questions, and providing much needed emotional support. I have seen a real need for this in both my personal and professional life. I am anxious to hear from anyone who is interested or who has experience with this specialty. I live in southeast Michigan.
