Wolman, Jean
This module on owning and operating a nursing service is one of 36 in a series on entrepreneurship. The introduction tells the student what topics will be covered and suggests other modules to read in related occupations. Each unit includes student goals, a case study, and a discussion of the unit subject matter. Learning activities are divided into individual activities, discussion questions, and a group activity. Units (and subject matter) in this module are planning your business (services, customers, and competition; personal qualities and skills; how to compete; legal requirements); choosing a location (central and convenient location); getting money to start (business description; statement of financial need); being in charge (tasks; selecting nursing staff; keeping staff and customers happy); organizing the work (work orders; work schedules); setting prices (customer demand; competition; operating expenses; profit); advertising and selling (selling to customers; attracting nursing staff); keeping financial records (customer billing form; daily cash sheet); and keeping your business successful (keeping track of profits; changing your business to increase sales). A summary and quiz complete the document. (A teacher's guide is available for this module.) (CT)
