We interview nurses who are business owners, entrepreneurs, and leaders. We want to hear inspiring stories from the nurse next door who is making a difference in the entrepreneurial and business space. My mission is for you to own your seat at the table of nurse entrepreneurship, gaining confidence, skills, and freedom to live your life on your own terms. You will dream big and expand your consciousness as an entrepreneur.
Welcome our guests today, Kristin Wade, founder of Fiscal Bliss Financial Coaching, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Today’s episode, “How one nurse found financial freedom and helps other nurses do the same.”
About Kristin Wade
Kristin worked as a nurse in the Newborn ICU, but she was always the personal finance geek. She slowly coached her peers over IV starts and break room talks. She saw a huge need for financial wellness amongst healthcare workers and has since made that her business focus. She believes that you should take care of yourself just as well as you care for others. Kristin teaches practical and manageable systems for busy nurses.
 
As a special gift, listeners who book a call with Kristin get a free budget template and a 10% discount on coaching packages if you mention you heard her episode on The Nurse Shark Academy Show when you book your call.

Welcome our guest today, Patti Mazurkiewicz, owner of Angel Nurse Consulting, LLC, living in Billings, Montana.  Today’s episode, “How one nurse who followed in her mother’s footsteps fell in love with nursing.”
About Patti Mazurkiewicz
Angel Nurse Consulting, LLC was started a few years ago under duress. It was the only way I could work with an old friend of mine doing nurse life care planning and she would only hire me as a sub-contractor e.g. business owner. I never imagined myself as a business owner, but now that I am, I would never want to go back. I also provide mental health counseling to women, most of whom have a history of trauma. How did I get to this point? I returned to college and got my master's degree in rehabilitation and mental health counseling at the age of 50. Before I graduated I was offered a job as an assistant to a life care planner providing research. I didn't even know what a life care planner was.

Welcome our guest today, Alexandria Jones-Patten, founder of Authored by AJP, located in San Pedro, California.  Today’s episode, “How one nurse with a passion for public health nursing turned into an entrepreneur.”
About Alexandria Jones-Patten
In 2017 Alexandria became a Registered Nurse, dedicating three years to hospital floor duties on a busy telemetry unit. Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020 she decided to pivot to a public health role because she knew she wanted to explore her talents beyond the bedside. She spent the next two years providing care to homeless adults in shelters and temporary housing. Still, Alexandria had a passion for business that wasn't met in the public health sector. During this time she was working on her Nursing PhD and began exploring entrepreneurship. This was when she realized she could put her writing talents to use beyond academic writing. In 2022 she decided to launch a freelance writing business, 'Authored by AJP."  Her primary goal is to educate the public and inspire others about heart health, using her unique blend of experiences and knowledge. She also helps other nurses start their freelance writing business.

Welcome our guest today, Gezrine Duncan, independent associate of PPLSI/LegalShield, located in Ada, Oklahoma.  Today’s episode, “How one nurse found her groove in network marketing as second career.”
About Gezrine Duncan
I am a former Nurse Midwife and a Critical Care Registered Nurse I truly enjoyed taking care of the sick, seeing a critically ill patient become alert smile and speaks coherently and is well enough to leave the unit is such a joyous feeling. But there comes a time in our lives when we have to "pass the baton on"  LegalShield was introduced to me by someone in another State, I listened to the information, it made sense, I got the Legal and the Identity Theft Plans, giving access to attorneys Nationwide including Canada, paying a small fee per month seems like a very great deal. I must confess that I was a bit skeptical  "what kind of attorneys are these , so cheap, the cost is less than a cup of coffee per day?" Anyways , I wanted to support the individual.  I got monthly monitoring of my credit from the  firm informing me that there was no illegal activity on my credit.                                                                   
        I was going on vacation this particular month when the report came , I ignored it just thinking it's all good. On my return I was surprised to see the alert needed my immediate response, I had been a victim of Identity Theft. There was an email congratulating me that the credit cards I applied for was successfully delivered. I called my law firm they assured me that I am protected, I was assigned an Attorney and a Private Investigator, the took control informed me  of everything they were doing, on one of the cards a purchase of $58.000 for a car .                                                                                                                                              
         In a short while I got a letter from my attorney informing me that all the irregularities had been taken care of and I had total restoration of my credit to pre-theft status. What make this service so awesome, I didn't have any out-of-pocket expense.

My mission is for you to own your seat at the table of nurse entrepreneurship, gaining confidence, skills, and freedom to live your life on your own terms. You will dream big and expand your consciousness as an entrepreneur.Welcome our guest today, Evaline Dorce, returned Peace Corp volunteer and nurse from New York.  Today’s episode, “How one nurse turned tragedy into her purpose and passion.”
About Yvaline DorceMy name is Yvaline Dorce, I am a mom, a wife, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV), a nurse. I am a first-generation college student. I was born and raised in the beautiful “La Perle des Antilles”, AKA Haiti. I moved to the United Stated at the age of sixteen. I always had a passion for helping others. On Tuesday January 12th 2010, when a 7.0 magnitude earthquake devasted Haiti, all I wanted was to get on a plane and help. However, I could not. It was heartbreaking watching the news and there was nothing I could do to help. Ever since, I had no doubt that I was called to serve!
I have worked in different areas of nursing from outpatient dialysis to critical care. From Hepatitis C research at Columbia University to traveling to the Democratic Republic of the Congo working on medicinal plant treatment for diabetes, I have gained a wealth of knowledge in healthcare. Helping and educating others on different health topics has always been my passion. 
Currently I am a CTICU nurse and embarking in my entrepreneurship journey. In addition to nursing, I love to travel, try different food, read. I inspire to help aspiring nurses and nurses get out of their comfort zone and achieve their full potential.Head over to her webpage to receive her free checklist on what you need to know before, during and after nursing school: https://nurseperer.ck.page/c459c5da04

The Nurse Shark Academy 

Our mission at The Nurse Shark Academy is to expand the consciousness of nurses as experts to reflect their individual and collective power by promoting self-agency through inspiring nurses to dream big, reach far, and soar to new heights in business and the profession of nursing thereby producing a healthier & richer society.

Why The Nurse Shark? A nurse is an expert in the profession of nursing. A shark is an expert in his or her field or profession, hence The Nurse Shark. The nurse shark in nature is not an aggressive shark, but this shark still has teeth. Nurse sharks in nature are social creatures. Nurse sharks are nocturnal and dwell at the bottom of the ocean most of the time. Nurses, highly trained and professional nurturers, nurses make great business owners as they know how to get things done. Thus, The Nurse Shark Academy. Nurse sharks know how to feed their young and not eat their young, an attitude we foster in our community. Become a Nurse Shark today where we are experts in nursing and experts in business!
