Business and Social Enterprise

There have always been nurses involved in healthcare businesses. Some run nursing homes or nursing agencies; some have set up companies or social enterprises that provide services, education or consultancy. They are a small percentage of the profession, but changes to the structure of the health service, and the increasing scope of professional practice, means that their numbers are growing.
