When it comes to things like nursing and entrepreneurship, or “the business of nursing”, overcoming self-doubt is key to success. Our guest this week is Amelia Roberts, and she has made it her mission to spread her knowledge on all of this.

What You’ll Discover in This Episode:

  • Everyone has their own reasons for considering launching an entrepreneurial endeavor.
  • Simply being a nurse can instill trust in potential clients because nurses are so universally admired, even if your business has nothing to do with nursing and healthcare.
  • You can leverage the so-called “gig economy” to earn money on the side while working as a nurse.
  • Having multiple streams of income can give you some financial security that your value and worth isn’t only tied to your nursing job, but also to your other endeavors. Your side hustles can also bring certain types of fulfillment that your nursing job doesn’t.
  • Plus so much more!

Nursing Organization of the Week: AAMN or Advancing Men in Nursing.

Nursing isn’t just about providing care, it’s also about the community. Nurses who work together help drive the field forward and provide support, encouragement, and so much more for nurses all over the world. With that in mind, we here at the Mastering Nursing podcast want to highlight and recognize those that are doing a particularly great job of it.

We seek nominations from our listeners and other passionate nurses, and then decide on award winners each episode. If you have any nursing organization you think should be highlighted, don’t hesitate to reach out via e-mail (or social media message) and let us know!

This week, we’re so happy to award the AAMN or Advancing Men in Nursing..

Since their founding in 1971, under the name of the National Male Nurses Association or NMNA. From humble begininiings they have since grown in membership and scope. These days their mission is simple… To shape the practice, education, research, and leadership for men in nursing and advance men’s health. Their purpose is to provide a framework for nurses, as a group, to meet, to discuss and influence factors, which affect men as nurses.

The objectives they want to meet include:

  • To encourage men of all ages to become nurses and join together with all nurses in strengthening and humanizing health care.
  • To Support men who are nurses to grow professionally and demonstrate to each other and to society the increasing contributions being made by men within the nursing profession.
  • To Advocate for continued research, education and dissemination of information about men’s health issues, men in nursing, and nursing knowledge at the local and national levels.
  • To Support members’ full participation in the nursing profession and it’s organizations and use this Association for the limited objectives stated above.

They do fantastic work, and are certainly deserving of recognition! If you’d like to connect with them, you can do so on facebook.
