Just wondering if there are any nurses who are also inventors out there?

My stuff was developed while working at the device company, so they "own" the technology. However their patent attorney also submitted the patent applications in the names of the people who obtained them.
If you work independently and have ideas, the first move would be to get something on paper describing it (doesn't have to be fancy) then go to a patent lawyer.
Here's some info: http://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/howtopat.htm
