In what date (month/year) did you start your business? 3/99

What is your experience and background in Nursing? (Medical/Surgical, ER, Psych, OR, etc.): 20+ years hospital based work: Pediatric, Med/Surg, Supervisory, and primarily ER.

How did you hear about the Nurse Entrepreneur Homesite?: I was surfing the web originally. Recently, was contacted by jocularity.com entrepreneur Andrew Lopez BS, RN.

How many years have you/did you practice as a nurse: 20+

Professional organizations you belong to (are they on the web?): ENA, yes

What made you decide to start your own business? We had a pediatric code in our ER. We found that the available Pediatric Tools on the market did not give us the information we wanted in a clear format. I originally designed the CrashCards Pediatric Resuscitation tool for my own pocket. After urging by area physicians and nurses, a board certified physician and I began "CrashCards, Inc."

How many times have you changed employers in your career? Once.

What specific qualities and traits do you feel make nurses especially qualified to operate a business? The vision and ability to identify a need and the time and effort necessary to pursue it are important qualities necessary to start a business. To operate a business takes incredible time and energy, the ability to be flexible and at the same time goal oriented. With the advent of the computer age, there is so much more available for the nurse with a vision. Nurses are professionals that are people oriented and consumers in their own right, making them excellent judges of what their peers want and need in a product. We have been there, we know what will work for our profession and we also know what we would buy or use in our own work settings. All of these traits make nurses excellent business entrepreneurs.

Do you currently practice as a nurse? If yes in what type of setting? Yes, I am an Emergency Department Nurse and have been certified as a CEN for many years. I have worked in the ER for over 20 years. I have also continued to keep other certificates current including BLS, TNCC, ACLS, PALS and other courses such as conscious sedation, arrhythmia, and EKG interpretation.

If you are a practicing nurse, do you feel short staffing is affecting your ability to provide safe patient care? I can see short-staffing becoming more and more of an issue. We have, in my unit at this time, an appropriate number of staff to patient count, however, where the issue is becoming a problem is assuring that the necessary experience is available on each shift. I believe as other options are opened to those in nursing related fields with better pay and less responsibility, it will shift those experienced nurses out of patient care and place them in fields with less stress and better hours. It is the heart of a nurse, however, that is the sticking factor. I believe that we, as nurses, are essentially giving providers and truly want the best for the patients that are in our care. Hopefully, that is a factor that will keep experience in the field where it is absolutely necessary. To obtain new and future experienced nurses, we need to make sure nursing is a profession where we not only have the respect and satisfaction of a job well done but have the salaries and benefits necessary to entice those in the process of choosing their careers to determine that nursing is indeed a career worth pursuing.

Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare (Please note, a response to this question is mandatory for a free listing): Our nurses are being asked daily to take an increasing amount of time away from their patient care in order to provide the paper or computer work necessary for the ongoing legal requirements. This necessitates a day that is increasingly time oriented with less time being available to deal with the needs of the individual patients. The increasing crunch on time schedules leads to less time being allotted to working as a team member, creating a less cohesive work environment. This combined with decreasing reimbursements to hospitals leads to less nurses with more to do.

Retaining the experienced nurse and sharing this experience by providing the hands-on teaching that is neglected in our theory based schools. Making sure the nurses that are placed in positions of such responsibility have had the necessary and available clinical time to provide them with the experience to be able to make sound judgments.
