When women are entrepreneurs, it’s time to give them a raise

It’s not uncommon for an aspiring female entrepreneur to say, “I’ve got a plan, I’ve got to get it done.”

But what if you can’t find that plan, or don’t know what you want to do with your life?

Well, if you’re a nurse and you’re interested in opening a new practice, there are some things you can do to help yourself in the meantime.

“It is not uncommon that the majority of new nurses don’t even have a clear understanding of their future career plans,” says Dr. Sarah Anderson, the chair of the American Nurses Association’s board of directors.

“We can help you figure out if you are on the right track and what you need to do to get there.”

And with that, here are five things you should know before you start thinking about starting your own nursing practice:1.

Nurse shortageIs there a shortage of nurses?

Absolutely.

But don’t be surprised if you find yourself on the wrong side of the nurse shortage debate.

“There are so many opportunities for nurses to find jobs and for employers to hire nurses, and it’s really a time of great uncertainty,” says Angela Rousset, the president and CEO of Nurse Professionals United.

“The shortage of nursing is a real challenge for our country.”

The shortage is especially acute in rural areas, where fewer than 2,000 nurses work in each state, according to the American College of Nursing.

While there are a few reasons for this, it could be due to the difficulty of obtaining new nurses from nursing homes, because it’s difficult to find people who have completed their nursing training, or because there are no jobs in rural nursing homes.2.

Getting your resume on the boardNurse-run nursing homes can provide a more stable employment landscape than non-Nurse facilities, according a 2015 report from the Association of Private Nurse Retirees.

There are currently over 1,800 nurse-run, full-service nursing homes nationwide, including more than 5,300 in the U.S. and more than 2.2 million people employed in nursing homes according to figures from the U, S. Department of Labor.

There is also a shortage in full-time nursing, which can lead to a higher turnover of workers.

If you are looking for a job as a nurse, it is important to have a resume in hand, so you can present yourself in an attractive way to potential employers.3.

Getting a positionYou may find that your current employer isn’t looking for you as a nursing assistant or a nurse but wants you to work in the healthcare field.

If this is the case, the best place to start is with a career search.

The Nursing Careers Institute, an organization of nurses, has more than 60,000 job listings for nursing jobs, and more employers are starting to recognize this as an attractive career option.

The American Council on Career Colleges, a nonprofit educational organization, offers career advice to graduates who want to pursue nursing careers.4.

Setting goals for yourselfGetting a job at your current nursing employer isn-t an ideal situation for most people, especially if you aren’t comfortable with your own goals.

“Nursing is an incredibly difficult and challenging profession,” says RousSET.

“I’m not saying it’s easy, but it is definitely more difficult than many people realize.

If there is a career path you want, it shouldn’t be an uphill battle.”

It can be a lot easier if you set goals for your future career.

It’s also important to keep an eye on your own performance.

“Be realistic and keep your goals to yourself,” says Anderson.

“You need to be realistic about your performance.

Be consistent.

It doesn’t matter if you just get an A or a B. That doesn’t mean you’re an ace.”

If you’re not confident in your own ability, consider working for a company that has a greater focus on working with the nursing workforce, says Anderson, and that will help you to understand what your role is, and how you fit into their culture.5.

Getting the supportYou’re not the only person struggling to find a job, but you are the one who needs help.

If a coworker or a friend is struggling with nursing, they can help by sharing your story and encouraging you to take on the challenge.

“Being a nurse can be challenging for everyone, but there is no substitute for being in the workforce,” says Katelyn Lutz, the founder of CareNurse.com, a platform that allows people to share their stories about nursing.

“If you find that nursing is not what you are passionate about, you can still find work, and support can be very helpful.”

Why the ‘female entrepreneur’ stereotype exists in tech

Female entrepreneurs are underrepresented in tech, and a recent study found that they are often overlooked for positions of power and responsibility.

The study, which was funded by the American Enterprise Institute and conducted by the nonprofit Catalyst, looked at 1,200 entrepreneurs who had founded at least two startups in the last decade and identified them based on whether they had female co-founders or female partners.

The results showed that nearly a third of the women in the cohort were either female cofounders (36.9 percent) or partners in a partnership (24.3 percent).

And in nearly three-quarters of the cases, both cofounding partners were female.

This is despite the fact that women hold just 16 percent of the corporate-level executive positions in the United States, according to the American Association of Colleges and Employers.

Catalyst is encouraging female entrepreneurs to consider taking their own business opportunities, and the group has even launched a website to help female entrepreneurs navigate the hiring process.

It is also providing mentorship and networking opportunities to female entrepreneurs in the hopes that more will make the leap to the workforce.

“It’s a matter of doing it right,” said Stephanie Rabin, an associate professor of marketing at the University of Pennsylvania who was part of the research team.

“And that means having an entrepreneurial mindset, and being prepared for your business to succeed.”

For some women in tech — a field that has traditionally been dominated by white men — the stereotype has become even more entrenched.

“The idea that you have to be an expert in your field to get a job is not necessarily true for the majority of women,” said Amanda Sartore, who works as a marketing manager in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“Most of the people who work in tech are women.”

The perception that women are less capable in tech has also impacted their ability to succeed, said Sartire, who has worked with female entrepreneurs for a decade.

“I’m not saying that there aren’t good women who are doing great things.

I’m just saying that it’s not an accurate representation.”

For women in technology, this is often due to a lack of female mentors or leaders.

“Women have to feel like they have to do more than just pitch in and talk to their boss,” Sartorye said.

“That’s a pretty big barrier for women in a lot of industries.”

The study also found that while women are more likely to work for companies with a male CEO or board of directors, they are less likely to be able to navigate that culture, especially in tech.

And while Sartoria said that many women have made it into top positions at companies, she believes that it takes a lot more to become a successful entrepreneur than just having the right skills and networking skills.

“You need to be a really good listener,” she said.

But despite these obstacles, women in Silicon Valley are working to change the landscape.

In 2016, Sartora and a team of students launched the #BeGreatInSilicon Valley movement to help young women build their own successful companies in a space that historically has not been considered a “women-friendly” workplace.

The group aims to raise awareness about the impact of gender inequality on women in this industry, and encourage female entrepreneurs and their partners to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities.

“We know that there are still barriers, but it’s also important to take action,” SARTORE said.

In recent years, the #begreatinsilicon valley campaign has become a regular part of college and high school student events, with a handful of students participating in a “Silicon Alley Moment” on the UC Berkeley campus in 2017.

The event was created by the campus chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) as a way to empower young women to get involved in entrepreneurship.

“A lot of the time, there’s a lot less awareness around this issue,” said Katie Bochenek, who is an engineering student at UC Berkeley.

“But when you get a bunch of your friends who are interested in tech and you’re able to talk about it, you can make a difference.

You can create a buzz around the idea.”
