  1. IV Hydration Clinic

    I am in the midst of researching this currently. I haven't found any clear answers yet! I hope someone with more experience can chime in.
  2. I've agonized with this question throughout my nursing career, but at this point, I am able to admit that the answer for me is NO. It took a lot to even get to the point to admit that nursing was a career decision that wasn't optimal for me. While ...
  3. Independent R.N in rural Nevada

    All good points by NedRN. Except as a home health agency, you will have regulatory obligations to provide directly (or be able to provide on a contract basis) certain services, beyond just nursing (medical social work, skilled PT/OT/ST, aide service...
  4. Day in the Life of a Freelance Nurse Writer

    Hi Beth- Any tips on how to set rates for services? Do you calculate an hourly rate and then estimate the time you will spend on a project? Also, do you find that sites such as Elance undermine the value of what you can offer as a nurse writer?
  5. Home Health Agency Marketing

    Home health is one of the toughest, most competitive sectors in health care. I have 8 years of experience in the home health and hospice industry and I've had many roles ranging from nurse to administration to home health CMS surveyor. Unfortunatel...
  6. What have you learned about Death?

    Interesting topic. I have a background in hospice. Although I've learned a lot about the dying process, I would say that I've learned even more about living. My work in hospice inspires me to live as fully and love as deeply as I can. A lot of pe...
  7. Definitely working as an RN is more stressful. No doubt about that. I look back on nursing school fondly at times...
  8. Nurse Entrepreneur Roll Call!

    I own a private nutritional therapy and functional health practice. I've been in business for 2 1/2 years. Prior to that, I owned a health coaching practice for several years. I recently moved to California from Florida.
  9. Nurse Entrepreneur Roll Call!

    I would love to get an idea of what other nurse entrepreneurs are up to. Would anyone be willing to share what their business is? Even if you haven't yet implemented your business plan, I'd love to hear from you! Please include what your business (...
  10. Purchasing probiotics

    You absolutely don't want to be involved with that. There are professional line supplements that are sold to health care professionals only and I think that is why your friend wants to involve you. Health care providers have to sign a contract that...
  11. Anyone have Holistic MSN?

    What are your career goals? How do you envision yourself using the holistic master's degree? What benefits would it provide to you? Could you learn/practice without it? What job will you be able to get with this degree? Before pursuing this (or a...
  12. How To Become A Nutrition Health Coach

    If you are definitely interested in nutrition versus the more generic "health coaching", I would recommend looking into nutrition certification programs. I also thought about the RD-route, but I ruled it out after a lot of thought and research. I o...
  13. Day in the Life of a Freelance Nurse Writer

    Great article, Beth! And congrats on pursuing your passion. How much in demand are your services? Not to be too nosy, but is this a viable source of income for someone that is the sole bread-winner?
  14. Anyone done NIWH Whole Health Educator program?

    Thank you for that detailed reply, Conorm88! Very useful information!
  15. Where are all of the holistic nurses?

    I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, myasthenia gravis, and seronegative inflammatory arthritis. "Cure" is an interesting word because we can't make those kind of claims in conventional medicine. I wouldn't claim to have cured my autoimmune diseas...
