Nurse Independent Practice

In 1989, Carol Hamilton made a life changing decision! She terminated her full-time nursing position in public health nursing (having just been offered a supervisory promotion) and seized the challenge of being a nurse entrepreneur. She has now been running the race for more than 20 years and what an experience! “But Carol”, many have asked her, “how did you do it?”, “Can I do it too?”

In her role as educator, consultant and author, many have approached her to inquire if nurse entrepreneurship is really a possibility in our world today. With the continuous cutbacks occurring within the health care sector and economic hardships affecting individuals, worldwide, many seriously question why anyone would consider becoming a nurse entrepreneur. After all, why should we expect people to pay for the services of a nurse?

Being a nurse in independent practice is not for the faint of heart. However, with a good amount of determination and some mentoring along the way, many nurses have discovered this avenue of service to be extremely rewarding and fulfilling.

To assist those who are wanting to explore the concept of becoming a nurse in independent practice or for those who are seasoned veterans, check out our education events, consider purchasing the book, Nurse Entrepreneurship: Seizing the Challenge or sign up for some compassionate mentoring to recapture your perspective on where you are and where you hope to go as a nurse in independent practice!
