Our next guest has a beautiful background and truly unique nursing history. While her nursing career path may not have been straight and narrow, we can learn a lot form the circular trajectory our guest reflects on. It certainly highlights how a nursing career can take many turns and the profession of nursing allows for great opportunity.
A few take aways from our interview with Barbara:
- How a crazy career path finally led to nursing;
- What can be learned from a nursing series of adventure books;
- And why what we learn from others can help, and also hurt, us!
Barbara C Phillips, NP, FAAN is the Founder and CEO of Nurse Practitioner Business Owner (NPBO™) providing business and marketing education, resources and support for entrepreneurial and employed Advanced Practice Clinicians (NPs, APNs and PA-Cs). She believes all clinicians are a “business” and thus even the employed clinician will excel with basic business and marketing education.
She speaks, writes, and teaches on topics pertaining to the professional and business development of nurse practitioners including starting and growing a clinical and non-clinical business, contracts, negotiations, basic business skills, marketing and social media to name a few.
Barbara is a geriatric and family nurse practitioner and a fellow in the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
