An Example is included as a guide below:
McKinnon, A XXXXXXXXXXLessons learned in year one of business Journal of Legal Nurse Consulting, 30 (4), 26–28.
This article describes some of the difficulties many nurses experience when transitioning from nursing to a nurse consulting business. While the article focuses on issues of work-life balance, the differences between working for someone else and working for yourself, marketing, and other business issues, the author’s offer of only their personal experience is
ief, with few or no alternative solutions provided. There is no mention throughout the article of making use of other research about starting a new business and being successful. While relying on anecdotal advice for their list of issues, the author does reference other business resources, such as the Small Business Administration to help with business planning and professional organisations that can help with mentorships. The article is a good resource for those wanting to start their own legal nurse consulting business; it's even a good first piece of advice. However, entrepreneurs should also use more business research studies focused on starting a new business, with strategies against known or expected pitfalls and issues new businesses face, and for help on topics the author did not touch on in this a
eviated list of lessons learned.
