Can you give a bit more information?  What type of industry?  Are you a nurse yourself?  I would be happy to discuss this in more detail with you, as it is what I do for a living.

I'm a RN at a nursing home. It's my first nursing job. I don't hate it. it's not a bad place. my other job is at a hotel/casino (I'm a cook. can't leave the hotel because we have free insurance and the insurance at the nursing home is ***). since all this covid 19 mess is going on, hotels/casinos must take all these precautionary steps in order for them to open.

I would like to propose to the hotel to bring me in as a company nurse. however, I am a little unsure what would be my role exactly or how I would pitch them my idea.

Well, this is interesting.  If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, the pitch will come naturally.

 

Identify all of the requirements from the state and fed that a nurse could positively affect.  Identify areas of risk, or a "gap analysis" from which you see potential liability or loss.  Take these items and attach a value to them.  It's good to get an idea of what the charge for services would be from an outside vendor, and extrapolate that over a year to identify a cost savings by hiring a nurse.  

 

The barrier you will have right away is medical direction.  You'll need a physician signing off.  An easy way to manage this is to speak with a local OCC health clinic and see if they would provide you that direction in exchange for the companies referrals.  They may also charge a small fee which would be included in the cost benefit analysis you would present to the casino.  

 

Send me a PM if you have any questions.  I will tell you that the transition from long term care to OCC health may be challenging.  Be ready to study and get up to speed on all the regulations.
