The International Council of Nurses handbook:

                         "Looking for more professionally satisfying and personally fulfilling ways to contribute

                          to health care provision systems, nurses are reclaiming their traditional right to independent

                          practice in small but growing numbers.  They are expanding their clinical roles and offering a

                          range of innovative services, with the focus primarily on health promotion, illness and accident

                          prevention, chronic and palliative care, rehabilitation and support services, clinical specialty

                          practice and management consultancy.  Efficient clinicians, these nurses are also providing

                         quality and effective services and creating a positive public image as patient advocates,

                         caregivers, counsellors and educators.  This independent-minded group of nurses include both

                         entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.

                         As with any systemic or organisational change, the reintroduction of nurse entrepreneurs

                         requires careful preparation of the practitioners and the field while at the same time creating

                        the necessary legal, socio-economic, professional and personal support structures.  National

                        nurses associations (NNAs) have an important role to play in the ongoing evolution of nurse

                        entrepreneurship and a major responsibility to monitor and evaluate the results in terms of

                        patient outcomes and nurses' sense of professional well-being."
