Is it possible for a nurse to make a living as a freelance writer?

I love showing nurses the possibilities of a writing career. Here are two possibilities that can be considered tailor-made for nurses. You are reading page 2 of Exploring the World of Freelance Writing for Nurses. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Awesome article. I'm a nurse turned copywriter. I ghostwrite for doctors, nurses, lawyers, etc. Writing is actually my passion, so I feel fortunate that I can merge the two disciplines. 

Yay! So nice to meet you! I thank you for commenting and will look forward to reading any posts or articles.

I was excited reading your article because I have interest to one day write. I  want to start but don't know how because I do not have freelance experience. Like you, I enjoy educating people.

I was a lawyer in my country before coming to the USA and starting on a nursing path. I just became an RN at 55, still searching for a job for now, and would be completing my BSN in April 2020. 

I will be glad to be mentored. What is involved?

Congratulations on becoming a nurse at mid-life. I did the same thing! It was a wonderful career, but ultimately I decided to use my keyboard to help people instead of my stethoscope.

I'll be publishing articles here at allnurses on freelance writing for nurses, and I also offer a subscription newsletter (RN2Writer) that is basically a master class in freelancing.

Happy to answer any questions via the comments.

"I decided to use my keyboard to help people instead of my stethoscope." 🙂 🙂

Thanks for your response. I will surely read your articles here when you post. I will be glad to know what the very first step is to take on this path. 

I will want to do this as a side gig while getting clinical experience like you. Then I may eventually use my keyboard to help people. 🙂
