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 breakfast & lunch are 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.

Founder - Cara Sevier Industries LLC
Born the third child of six, Cara Sevier, has always had the natural inclination to take care of others. As a child and young adult, she dreamed of becoming a physician. She thrived in school, achieving awards, scholarships, and elections into the National Honor Society and Who’s Who Among American High School Students. After a successful completion of her Secondary Education, she enrolled as a Pre-med Major, but once starting her course studies, her feelings toward medicine began to change. Cara began to allow her background of performing arts to surface. She began participating in talent shows, fashion shows, and was even featured in a commercial. Cara felt as if she was embarking on a path that she could be passionate about. Cara then made more upward strides upon graduation from college. She returned to her hometown of St. Louis, and in a matter of four years starred in two independent films, executive producing the latter, and premiered her first fashion project—her own clothing line—Five.Two Designs.
Ever vigilant and wise, Cara began to see that her newly chosen career path had a few challenges. The most noticeable was attempting to live out her passion without enough financial sustenance. So, she made a bold move to obtain her Registered Nurse License. After all, she had completed more than enough coursework to help her achieve this short-term goal. After accomplishing this goal, Cara made another bold step and moved to Atlanta where she would be closer to the entertainment industry. More recently, one of Cara’s brands-“Fashion MD” was featured on NBC’s “The Dee Armstrong Show”, where she discussed her unique application of fashion styling—from the inside out. Cara also discussed her 1st literary work, “From A Fashionista’s Soul” available now on Amazon.com.
Currently, Cara has expanded her company to comprise several brands along with Fashion MD: The RN Prescription, ALSETI wigs, and Elite CEO. The parent company is listed as Cara Sevier Industries LLC, located in Atlanta, Georgia.
