Nursing shortage solution: West Virginia Nursing Network

In December 2010, Jill Hopkins decided she wanted to do something to help with the nation’s nursing shortage. Hopkins quit her job as an agency nurse and started her own company, West Virginia Nursing Network, LLC.

“I decided I wanted to give other nurses other opportunities,” Hopkins said.

Hopkins ran the 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week business by herself until March when she became overwhelmed with the workload. Her sister, Jessica Whitman, offered to help, and then she, too, quit her full-time nursing position and partnered with Hopkins.

Today, Hopkins and Whitman split the duties of co-owning a business—Hopkins handles the scheduling and acts as the liaison while Whitman deals with organization and research.

“My phone starts ringing at 4 a.m. and goes until 11 at night,” Hopkins said.

West Virginia Nursing Network offers temporary staffing of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants and certified medical assistants for health facilities that need their services. The professional staffing company also has a team of PICC line-certified RN’s available when needed.
