What is this article about?

Whether they’re nurses or not, entrepreneurs are movers and shakers in the business world. Entrepreneurial individuals start businesses of all sizes, and nurses are no exception. A nurse entrepreneur might be a freelance writer, the owner of a home health agency, or an internationally known motivational speaker and consultant. There are no limits to what nurses in business can accomplish. When we talk about the notion of intrapreneurship, we are referring to an employee who 'takes ownership' of their work, who thinks about the good of the whole and who strives to make a significant contribution to their place of employment.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
