Imagine every day being a struggle to make it to work. You change shifts. You change units. You even change jobs, yet the stress is unbearable, and you are burnt out. Now, think of all of your nursing skills. All of the years of learning how to coordinate care, perform different tasks, and communicate with physicians and family members. Do you realize that the very skills you use every day, as a nurse, are transferable? More nurses are starting to step away from the bedside and use their nursing experience and education to launch businesses. LPNs, RNs, and APRNs, alike, are making their skills bankable and changing lives.
