Sell Your Nursing Knowledge

  1. 5
    Anyone out there frustrated with their present nursing job? I was there a
    few years ago and then started writing health care related articles online
    for internet marketers. You can supplement your nursing income writing
    400-600 word articles. There are internet marketers who own websites
    in all health related fields. They buy unique and original articles to post on their
    websites and blogs to increase the amount of traffic to their websites. They
    want articles on all types of health care topics ranging from heart disease, diabetes, lupus, cancer,
    obesity and virtually anything to do with the human body.

    If you like to write and want to share your knowledge then think about becoming
    an online article writer for hire.

    I've wanted to do this for a very long time...thanks for your post. 2 Questions: How do you find the websites/clients? and 2 how much are you paid for an article of about 500 words?

    Thanks again!!

    How do you know they are not selling the "articles" you write to students to submit as papers for school?

    There was a article recently in The Chronicle of Higher Education about the big business of producing student papers and selling them. It is an international business that operates in the shadows, often intertwined with companies with seemingly legitimate businesses. But in reality, many articles/papers are being sold to students who are cheating -- and who turn around and submit that paper (with maybe a few minor revisions) to school.

    I'm not saying that all companies seeking writers are in this illigimate business -- but what safeguards are there to let you be confident that your "article" does not end up being sold to a cheating student?

    What are some of the topics that you have been asked to write about?

    Students would not be able to sell these types of articles as they are only 400-600 words and are written for the lay person on health care related topics. I have written on various subjects such as
    diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and migraines. These articles would not be suitable for a nursing school paper so students would not be interested in copying this type of content.

    When you first start writing for hire you may only get $10 an article. But if you are writing about a health related topic that you are very familiar with you can write an article in about 15 minutes. If you look for IM forums on google then you can register with them and post in the "for hire" section.

    There are many other ways to make money with your nursing knowledge such as:
    *writing ebooks
    * becoming an affiliate marketer selling other peoples products.
    * having a paid health related membership site
    * write PLR (private label rights) articles for other membership sites
    * write an ebook, submit it to Kindle and get paid each time someone buys your book.
    * write a 50 page ebook submit it to a digital marketplace and have other affiliates sell your digital book. (If 1000 IM'rs sold your book you would receive 25K)
    (Create multiple digital products and have internet marketers sell your products and you will continue to be paid over and over for your writing.)
    * Read your ebook and create an MP3 of it and/or burn it to a CD. The physical copy can be sold on eBay. They no longer allow selling digital downloads of ebooks.

    There are many different ways to make money online but you have to be able to focus for long periods of time, have patience and a lightening fast internet connection.

    I hope this helps.

    It all sounds a bit "shady" to me. What checks are there to be sure that these books and articles are written by people who are qualified to be giving health care advice? How does the consumer know that the person signing "RN" after his/her name is actually an expert in the field?

    I would not want to be associated with any outfit that wasn't affiliated with a recognizable company or institution that had appropriate reviewers to assure the accuracy of content, etc. before selling it to the unsuspecting public. It seems a good way to take advantage of people looking for health information by producing cheap, undocumented and poorly researched "articles" to sell. Inaccurate information can be more dangerous than no information at all.

    Plus, those 50-page "books" may well be sold on the black market as some cheating student's paper. The kindle book may just be a "cover."

    No thanks, if I want to be an author. I'll stick with known, legitimate publishers of professional nursing material -- or known magazines with good reputations.

    Believe it or not there are people on the internet who actually are educated and have credentials. If a nurse is honest and has valuable and credible information to share with the public what better way to do it than by writing an ebook.

    Researchers write in a way that no lay person could possibly understand. If nurses have the education, training, credentials and ability to write in a way lay people can understand then I believe they should. The public will never find valuable health care information written in a nursing journal. Why not share their many years of knowledge, education and experience with others? Nurses who write can and should include their bios, education and experience with each ebook.

    If you want to be an author and stick with legitimate publishers of professional nursing materials that is commendable as other nurses will learn from your publications. I believe that nurses who feel trapped in the nursing profession and want another avenue to make money should be given the opportunity to write and publish online. It can be a great way to not only supplement their income but increase it many, many times over.

    In hospital settings nurses affect the lives of their patients everyday. Publishing their valuable nursing knowledge in an ebook can have an affect on
    tens of thousands of patients in a very positive way for years. As far as I am concerned writing for the public in this way is respectable and I think more nurses should do it.

    As far as the cheating students go if students are dishonest there is no way anyone is going to prevent them from cheating. It's just not going to happen. These students will be dishonest in and out of nursing school and that is just a fact of life.

    That still doesn't answer my questions. How do you know where your writing is going? ... How it is being used? Have you seen the published results of your work?

    How do your employers verify that the credentials of the authors are legitimate?

    I never said that everything online is bad -- and that the only legitimate outlets for writing are academically oriented, involve research, etc. There is a big need for people to write for the consumer. But legitimate publishers who produce books etc. for the consumers should at least check out the credentials of their authors to make sure that the people know what they are writing about. To not do such a check is a threat to the safety of the public.

    Writing health articles and selling them is a legitimate way to work from home and to make money from your nursing knowledge. Are you suggesting that this is not legitimate??
