CASE RNs is growing and it's because of you. RN's and Associates from across Canada are joining our ranks because they see the value in connecting with self-employed nurses who are working on the leading edge of innovative nursing services.
A small but growing percentage of nurses are embracing their prerogative to be in independent clinical practice.
All Registered Nurses who by definition work in independent practice are welcome to become members.
Definition of an Independent Practice Nurse
“A registered nurse who provides professional nursing services, as a proprietor of a business, through direct patient care, education, research, administration or consultation.”
Nurse Entrepreneurship publication "Seizing the Challenge" - Carol L. Hamilton
