Center for Nurse Entrepreneurship

  1. While surfing the Internet, I came across this link:

    Center for Nurse Entrepreneurship

    It is located in Rochester, NY. These links are a must read, IMHO, for those wishing to embark in the world of Nurse Entrepreneurship. I would have put some of the quotes on this post, but it is in Adobe Acrobat and would not take as a copy to paste here.

    I would love to hear comments about this opportunity, if anyone has something to share.

    Happy posting.

    Thanks for the link! The articles posted are more inspirational than educational - education seems to be reserved for enrolled students. Still, this is an interesting program. Here are a couple of interesting quotes from the article (by the way, you can select and copy text in many pdf documents - use the text tool):

    “But nurses have far deeper capabilities than health systems
    have taken advantage of. Those systems are now in crisis, and
    that crisis creates opportunities,” according to Klainer.
    Entrepreneurship encourages nurses to take more initiative
    and to honor the contributions nursing can make toward
    wellness and quality of life. “It’s a way of thinking that answers
    the question ‘what do I bring to the table?’ That answer evolves
    into a service for which people are willing to pay.”

    “I’m very interested in the problems, people and money ssues related to health care,” Klainer says. “It’s clear that it is time for a paradigm shift and, after meeting with Kate’s class, it was apparent that nurses have something to offer to solve our health care problems. They’re a talented but underutilized group that could benefit from being positioned differently in the health care hierarchy.”

    Harry:

    It sounds like good marketing to me. You know us Nurses, we need a mission.
    Glad you liked the article.
