From Indiana University School of Nursing, Indianapolis.
This issue of the Entrepreneur Column is written by the first Guest Contributor, Dr Brenda Lyon. Dr Lyon presents ideas especially for budding entrepreneurs and how her private practice has grown and matured. Of particular emphasis is how she developed her practice around nursing’s unique contributions to the health of individuals by focusing on diagnosis and treatment of illness with non-diseased-based etiologies. As discussed in the first article of this Entrepreneur Column (Clin Nurse Spec. 2002;16:274-276), CNSs possess the attributes and skills needed to become entrepreneurs, and Dr Lyon’s column demonstrates an excellent example of CNS entrepreneurship.
The editors of this column invite other guest contributors to submit topics for future columns. Please contact Nancy Dayhoff or Trish Moore, Co-editors, at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their Web site at www.clinicalsolutions-llc.com.
