A nurse writer is a professional licensed nurse either a registered (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN) who produces articles, content and other copy. Nurses are trusted and have broad and rich experiences in not only patient care but also the health care industry at large. A nurse's medical expertise can significantly elevate patient/consumer engagement with storylines, marketing materials and educational information. Examples of clients that benefit from hiring nurse writers are agencies or publication with health news sections or B2B and B2C companies with marketing content needs. These companies could be a hospital corporation, a clinic, a nonprofit organization or a medical product distributor.
According to Responsive Translation: "Item writing refers to the process of constructing the items required for a given test or assessment. The people who write these items are called item writers."
The expertise of a subject matter expert, like a nurse, is ideal for the creation of an educational or certification assessment. An example of this writing would be test bank questions for a health textbook.
By harnessing trust which in turn enhances loyalty.
I do this by applying approachable and relatable language in my tone and style of writing. I wield this skill thanks to decades of experience as a nurse studying humanity and incorporating best practices in meeting people's physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual needs.
My responsibility to you as a health writer is to learn:
- who your audience is
- what is the asset/deliverable desired (e.g. blog, article, eBook, etc.)
- the word count and editing process
- the technical nature of the project
- your budget for the project
Well... it depends.
I individualize rates for clients based on the scope of the project. Some projects are longer than others. One might require an in-depth interview of a subject matter expert. All require research, but some may be more technical.
So I'll need more information before providing a quote. This includes asking about your budget so I can give you more detail about my range of fees.
Please reach out to me via the Hire Me page with details about your project.
I'll get back to you within 2 business days with an estimate or additional questions about your project.
I look forward to discovering our options for working together!
