This post is directed to all for comments and ideas (especially L J)
I have been wanting to relocate to another community about 350 miles from where I am right now. It is a small community but seems to have it's share of the nursing shortage needs. I am taking a short term travel contract (unfortunately not as a Vendor with mu business) starting next week. I will be there through then end of May working as a floor nurse at the biggest hospital (med/surg ortho).
My real love in Nursing is HomeHealth. It is my hope that I will be able to adapt An Entrepreneur Business in this new area by Sept./ Oct. I Plan to camp Nurse in July in the general area.
Foot Care sounds great. I bet the need is everywhere for more services for diabetes and others in this area. Do I have to have a pedicure education? As far as a certification. I am sure it depends on State Regulations but I am throughing this out there for all to help me and really "see" thewalk through process.
For now, sigh, I will be working at a hospital doing floor nursing (days thank goodness). I may be able to do some PRN visits with exisiting HH Agencies. There has been one that will eventually work me me in this fashion, I believe, but need some more nudging. All in due time.
So my dear colleagues.... How can I start to poke my nose into the community and research the possibliites? I do know some of the doctors already but quite frankly I do not think they are the best or only place to rely on for my research.
Senior Centers are probably another great avenue for research. I should find out what is existing in the community and interview WHO? to see where the needs are.
Again, I am opening this up for topic so we may ALL view the process. NO idea is unapppeciated. Please... let us talk about it.
