How to Become a Medical Consultant as a Registered Nurse
Medical consultants, as independent contractors, can provide services directly to a doctor or healthcare facility. They can also work for a company that provides medical-consulting services. Clients or consulting firms will both consider a consultant’s education and experience when deciding to extend a job offer. Consultants should have at least a bachelor’s degree, such as in business, finance, science, engineering or healthcare. A consultant’s previous experience and track record, though, will likely matter more. Consultants with between one and five years of specific experience at a consulting firm or in the healthcare industry will likely fare better when looking for jobs. Though licensure and certification is not a requirement to work as a consultant, some employers may prefer candidates who have one or both, such as someone who is licensed as a registered nurse.
Or let me explain it this way:
No educational requirements exist. You need to be an RN. You do not need a BSN, MSN, or any other formal nursing degree. Business education is needed for nurses to understand the business aspects of being self-employed or a small business owner. The association provides this education customized for nurses. College and community business courses do not understand the nursing community. Advanced nursing courses do not teach self-employment and small business ventures. The NNBA provides this education in various ways to make it convenient and affordable for you.
The field is open for you. If you are good at it, you will make it very big at it.
