No, there is no certification process or licensure process to become a concierge nurse.
Depending on the services you offer, you do not need a medical director for this type of business. However, if you decide to incorporate any service that requires an order to signed by a provider, you will need a medical director.
Concierge nurses run the gamut. We have nurses who work just with plastic surgery patients, nurses who work with private pay, nurses who travel with patients, nurses who do medical tourism, fragile child care, post cardiac care, IV infusions. You are limited only by your imagination when it comes to concierge nursing!
Concierge nurses are fee for services and private pay. They are not entitled or eligible to receive the lucrative contracts with state or federal agencies because they are not licensed. But at the same time it costs way less money to start a concierge nurse business and there is a large growing market of patients looking for premium, boutique nursing care.
Kimble Walters, RN is the NursePreneurs community. Through her genius mind, her ability to network and delegate and the support of her like-minded peers, Kimble was able to make a success of both her businesses. However, success was far from guaranteed for her.
Kimble worked as a busy OR supervisor for many years. She barely had enough free time as it was, let alone time to start 2 businesses, but she was able to make it work, and now helps other busy nurses to do the same.
Kimble understands how busy nurses are and how much they want to invest in solid opportunities instead of chasing down shiny objects. Kimble created a no nonsense program that is focused on getting it done and doing it while you are working your full time job and even a part-time job.
