    ... I really thought people posting in the 'nurse entrepreuners' thread would be somewhat more open minded ...
    Yeah, that's the same little inconsistency I noticed. As previously noted though, that in and of itself reserves additional opportunities for others.

    I don't see what all the fuss is about. All I did was ask for more information about how the authors know for sure that their work is being sold to people using it for legitimate purposes. That's a reasonable question from someone who would not want to unknowingly contribute to the practice of buying and selling papers to submit for school requirments.

    All the OP (or anyone else) had to do was answer the question. I find it interesting that no one has yet to do that.

    Hi, said I wasn't going to post again, but the question has been answered...I don't know what else can be said.

    My last post really wasn't a reponse to your question..I don't normally post on forums so I see now that I should have quoted the person I was responding to if that makes sense.

    In any case llg, I think your question has been answered, perhaps someone else can articulate it better and give a more satisfactory answer for you. I am not really trying to convince anyone to do it I was just trying to support the orginal post..

    Interesting thread...I believe when you write about health issues, whether as a journalist or RN, you need to make sure your info is accurate and properly credited. Either way you give credit to the researcher or author where you are pulling the info from or basing your work. That is the appropriate thing for any scholar to do...give respect where respect is due.

    As for where it goes, who uses it and for what purpose... you may have limited control. If the info (whether it is from an unknown internet provider or a reputable medical journal) is out there and someone wants to use it for their own shady purposes there is not much you can do to stop them. It is a good idea to know where you are submitting your work.

    And remember that if you are signing your name and including your RN designation to an article that you wrote you are accountable for the info given just as you are accountable, as a practicing RN, for the info you provide to your patients.

    So, I believe, if you are writing as a reputable journalist you give credit to your sources, and if you are writing as an RN you accept accountability for your actions and words. We cannot control others, we can only control ourselves.

    People do not always hear what we say, but they do notice what we do.

    This is a great thread! Starting your own business takes a lot of work and time because it requires you to be a bigger person and grow. What do you think are the characteristics of becoming a successful nurse entrepreneur?

    Iíve always thought nurses have a lot of expertise but donít know how to leverage that knowledge in an entrepreneurial way many times.

    Additionally, there is plenty we know and can publish which doesnít need to be research based. For example, one could create a website to help people with dosage calculations.

    They key isÖ

    What do you know that others are interested in?
    How can you convey this information to your audience?
    How can you monetize this?
    How can you protect you intellectual property?
    Do you want to retain control of your intellectual property, or sell it to someone else?

    I have my own website which has been successful in bringing in a little extra money each month. It was definitely hard work, but I learned a lot in the endeavor, and itís very exciting to have created something and then see it generate money each month. Iím not sure if we are suppose to post other links here, but my site can be seen from my profile if you want to take a look.
