Something very exciting is going on in the nursing community today. We’re seeing many nurses recognize their “inner entrepreneur” and start a small business both in and outside of healthcare. That’s where the NNBA comes in. The National Nurses in Business Association (NNBA) is a professional nursing association and springboard for nurses transitioning from traditional nursing to small business ownership and self-employment. Lead by CEO & President Michelle Podlesni, the NNBA is a membership organization offering resources, training and a robust community focused on helping nurses become business owners.
