May 22, 2012 (Powerhomebiz.com) Are you thinking about becoming an entrepreneur nurse instead of getting a job at a local hospital? Most people who go to nursing school think that the end goal has to be working in a hospital in some fashion, and they do not realize that they actually have other options. When jobs are hard to come by, these people become discouraged. They may start doing odd jobs just to make ends meet. They may give up on their dreams altogether because finding that career just does not seem realistic to them any longer. You do not have to suffer this same fate.
You may have heard people say that it is much better to create a job than to find a job. In many ways, this is very true. Trying to find a job just means that you have to compete with everyone else in your field. It means that you are at the mercy of your employer. You can be fired whenever they decide that you are no longer needed. You have to sell yourself to people in interviews; if you do not have great interviewing skills, you could be passed over for jobs for which you are incredibly qualified. These same types of issues do not face you if you start your own career.
One option that you should consider is offering in-home care to those who need it. Many people who have birth defects need to have constant care. Parents cannot provide this at all times because they need to go to work to make money if the bills are going to be paid. You can be hired to come to the house every day and care for the person. You will be using your nursing skills as a caregiver. This is slightly different than how you may use them in a hospital since the end goal will not be to help the person get better. Instead, you will just be helping them to live the life that they have in comfort. However, you may find more satisfaction in this than in working on a hospital floor.
Similarly, you could start a business with other people in your position where you provide care to the elderly. Many elderly people do not want to move to nursing homes or retirement centers because they do not need constant care. They do not want to leave behind the homes that they have known for many years. They still feel fairly independent, and they do not want to give this up. At the same time, they need help with tasks like taking showers, cooking, cleaning, and going shopping. They may just need someone to drive them around. You can provide this assistance to many different clients for a few hours each day. Again, this is just a different way to utilize everything that you know about being a nurse.
As you can see, it is not hard to find other ways to use your skills. Are you sick of trying to find a traditional job? You need to look into the idea of making a job for yourself. This can be very rewarding. It also gives you the chance to be your own boss, so you will have more job security. Working for yourself could be just the career that you need.
