This Saturday, the Forrest Firm’s Ben Hicks will serve on a panel hosted by Northeastern University’s Bouve College of Health Sciences on the topic of nursing innovation and entrepreneurship in Charlotte.
As part of its Nurse Innovation and Entrepreneurship program, the University is inviting area nurses and nursing students to “think beyond the bedside” and consider careers in innovation and entrepreneurship. At its location at 101 North Tryon Street in uptown Charlotte, the University will host an all-in-one brunch, networking, and panel event on March 24 at 11 am.
A panel of nurse leaders, thought provokers, and business professionals will discuss topics related to pursuing entrepreneurship in the nursing industry, such as:
- What does entrepreneurship look like in nursing?
- How do I get started?
- What can I do with my nursing degree?
- Financing the business of nursing innovation/entrepreneurship
- Am I the only one?
- What propels nursing innovation and entrepreneurship?
At the close of the panel session, attendees will participate in Q+A with the panelists.
