DO YOU WANT TO STOP WORKING 12 HOUR SHIFTS?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TURN YOUR PASSION INTO A PROFITABLE BUSINESS?
ARE YOU READY TO LEAVE THE BEDSIDE AND ENTER THE BOARDROOM?
Let's be real, you love being a nurse, but you hate the hours.
"Self-scheduling" really isn't self-scheduling when there are so many rules applied to when you have to work.
And once you're scheduled to work, you have to pay close attention to when you clock in and clock out because overtime is not allowed!
When it's time for your yearly performance evaluation, you only get a $1-$2 raise, if that.
IT'S TIME TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR CAREER!
You can use your current nursing knowledge to build a business. No special degrees or certifications required. And we will help you!
The Nurse CEO™ Success Summit is for nurses who are entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, or for those who are looking for career alternatives.
This interactive summit will feature speakers and business experts and will provide attendees with resources, tools, and the network to launch or expand his or her own business.
Plus, a networking lunch is included!
The 2018 theme for the Nurse CEO Success Summits will focus on how to "hack" technology for business success.
Learn how to pair your nursing expertise and skills with today's technology to create a better business, community, or world.
WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?
Any nurse who wants to be a nurse entrepreneur, business owner, business leader, or Nurse CEO™.
Trust me, this event is not for everyone. This is only for the nurses that are ready to take their nursing experience and turn it into a money making business.
