Nurses: On Our Own, by Karon White Gibson, Joysmith Catterson, Patricia Skalka, Joy S.

The young, idealistic nurses expected to heal bumps and bruises, and ended up dealing with all that ails the human body and soul. The daring move was more controversial than they expected and impacted their lives in many ways. Their courageous, updated story details their adventures running and expanding their entreprenurial opportunities as Registered Professional Nurses."

What is a Nurse Practitioner?:"A nurse practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse with advanced academic and clinical experience, which enables him or her to diagnose and manage most common and many chronic illnesses, either independently or as part of a health care team. A nurse practitioner provides some care previously offered only by physicians and in most states has the ability to prescribe medications. Working in collaboration with a physician, a nurse practitioner provides high-quality, cost-effective and individualized care for the lifespan of patient’s special needs."

The organization of NPs in Virginia began a quarter century ago in the regional or local areas of the state. With the growth in the number of NPs throughout the state, Virginia NPs initially organized to become a Professional Practice Group of the VNA. In 1984, the VCNP became a council of the VNA, and as such has continued to grow in membership and in the services provided to its members. Membership now is over 1,300. Although there are other specialty NP groups, the VCNP offers an advantage for all NPs in Virginia because of its association with the VNA and the American Nurses Association (ANA) with their broad based membership and the resources available through these relationships.

Nurse Practitioner as Entrepreneur, By Carolyn Zaumeyer:"Carolyn Zaumeyer, MSN, ARNP is a graduate of Florida International University and President and Owner of Women's Health Watch, Inc. Over seven years ago Carolyn ventured into independent nursing practice. When planning her new practice, she did a literature review and was unable to locate any resource material to guide the nurse practitioner in developing her practice. While she was putting together her new venture, she was also keeping detailed notes, hoping that eventually she would be able to help other nurse practitioners interested in independent practice. In 1995 she published the book, "The Nurse Practitioner as Entrepreneur: How to Establish and Operate an Independent Practice - a reference and resource manual." This book has enjoyed national sales over the years, and many universities and colleges have utilized it as a text. It is now available for sale at our Website, "The Nurse Practitioner as Entrepreneur". It continues to guide and instruct nurse practitioners on how to establish, organize, and operate an independent nursing practice. Email Carolyn."

Charter pilot learns networking herself crucial to making her company take off:"Rosevelt, a 55-year-old semi-retired nurse practitioner, still works part time, taking throat cultures and peering into ears for Kaiser Permanente when she isn't flying. The regular paycheck has made her entrepreneurial foray possible, she said, adding that she doesn't anticipate earning enough income from her service to quit her other job for several more years. Her long-term goal is to have her charter service support her."

Defining Nurse Practitioner Scope Of Practice:"Nurse Practitioners have demonstrated the ability to provide care to many underserved groups, such as children, women, migrant workers, the homeless, and the elderly in nontraditional settings, such as schools, work sites, and health departments. Although multiple studies have documented the high quality of care and cost-effectiveness of APNs, these nurses remain an under-utilized resource. 2 Schools of Nursing are investing significant resources for preparation of NPs and NPs are graduating in record numbers. Globally, there are increasing opportunities for nurses with advanced practice skills. It becomes imperative to resolve the scope of practice issues for NPs to gain the needed public support to expand their role to meet much needed primary care services. 3 Yet restrictive practice environments continue to limit their efficient use both nationally and internationally."
