    From Nurse Practitioner to Independent Practice to Co-Founder of The Institute for Pelvic Health

    From Nurse Practitioner to Independent Practice to Co-Founder of The Institute for Pelvic Health

    Description #62 - This episode is part of our series on nurses who took the leap to leave their traditional nursing position and go full-time on their entrepreneurial journey during the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, we’re talking with Kathy Kates. Kathy is a family nurse practitioner and pelvic floor therapist. Kathy’s firsthand knowledge about pelvic health comes from her experience as a mom and a former cancer patient. Her work is enhanced by over 10 years as a nurse practitioner, running a women’s health program at a federally qualified health center.
    Listen in as Kathy tells us her story of going from burned-out nurse practitioner to co-founder of The Institute for Pelvic Health.
    One of the biggest decisions you have to make in your journey from side hustle to full-time entrepreneur is when to make the leap. In “normal” times this is a hard decision, but the uncertainty of the pandemic has brought a new set of challenges. And yet a large number of nurses have decided to do just that; leave the “security” of their traditional nursing job and go full time with their business. And the results have been tremendously positive. I want to share their inspiring stories with you.
    Show Notes If you’re interested in starting your entrepreneurial journey, I’d like to invite you to one of our free webinars. During this webinar training Janine Kelbach and I teach you what a lifestyle business is, and the framework we discovered to starting and growing a successful lifestyle business.

    From Nurse Practitioner to 6-figure Entrepreneur by Creating Heaven on Earth with Liz Rohr NP

    Description #060  - Today on The Stay At Home Nurse Podcast, we get to sit down and chat with Liz Rohr NP. Liz is a primary care family nurse practitioner, and the founder of Real World NP - an online educational platform and business where she creates the products she wishes she had when starting out as a nurse practitioner. Her business is growing and she’s bringing on employees while creating a happy place to work.
    Show notes More About Liz
    Liz Rohr is a family nurse practitioner, educator, wife, mom, and multiple 6-figure entrepreneurs. Since 2015, she's been a PCP with her own panel (1200+ patients when full-time). Today, she works part-time in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Boston, MA, and runs Real World NP. She’s been a nurse for over a decade and got her BSN from Boston College and MSN from UCLA. Credentials aside, she’s the kind of girl you'll find perusing Up-To-Date on her phone before bed— she can't help herself.
    When she’s not poring over textbooks or crafting videos, you can find her snuggling her German Shepherd-mix pup, or playing Anna and Elsa with her three-year-old daughter.

Love this!

Great podcast for nurses who want to go beyond the bedside! 💜

Natatva ,

Opened my mind to lifestyle business for nurses

Deanna has created a go-to podcast for ideas on how to get away from the bedside and still be in a nursing role.

SDGI2 ,

Highly relevant for all nurses, and other healthcare pros. too!

Deanna has some amazingly good content! It’s awesome that she’s able to put out such relevant information on such a consistent basis. With the COVID pandemic crushing the economy, it’s highly relevant content to find work-at-home jobs, even for healthcare professionals. Definitely worth a listen!!!
