You're listening to the RN Professions Podcast episode number 6. In today's episode, we talk with Portia Wofford, who is Nurse Director of Staff Development and a Content Writer for a number of nursing publications. She tells us how to get started with a nurse writing career and dives into specifics on creating a portfolio as well as what a writing contract should look like.   
Alli:
00:52
So, Portia, what is your current RN profession or what is your current nursing profession?
Portia:
00:58
Thank you for having me Alli. So I am currently an LPN, But I am also a nurse writer. Um, some people call it a freelance writer. I would like to say that I'm a nurse writer, and so I create content for healthcare organizations specifically who want a nurse. So they want that clinical. But they also want the one. Right.
Alli:
01:20
Okay, so let's talk about how long you've been a nurse and kind. What jobs you had that have led you to this place.
Portia:
01:27
Sure. So I've been a nurse, is 20 fan. And, um, I started out as a nurse in a long time care facility. So a nursing home, basically with a nursing homes slash rehab facility. But we have some patients over long from here, and then we have some patients that were your typical come in with the broker here for you. No fracture shoulders. But they were different in one day, and then they went home. I'm a transition out of that position because I was really burned out on some really burned me out his e patient load. Um, sometimes I had a 60 residents. 61 ratio sometimes, But I was really, really burn out from that. A good friend of mine with a home health nurse, Dorian, and she called me and she said, Hey, I think you really like this job you love to teach people. This job has about a taking. I think you know that right up your alley. So I'm trying out try home help out. Absolutely. Love Home Hill because I didn't get the people. I was out there in the field. I really got very confident in my field. Um, so there's a lot of people get home care and home help you You talk about that when I speak of home, Phil. I mean, where is one murder? She going out to see Victor Seven patients a day and you're seeing them 30 minutes apiece and then you're moving on to the next patient. But that's what I did for about four years. Really love that, Because I got to do a lot of teaching. Also loved it because the area that I worked in with the area that grill. So I know a lot of people that my grandparents and my parents, you know, making really good that they would remember mother at church and say, Hey, your granddaughters, my nerves.
Alli:
03:02
Oh, that's cool.
Portia:
03:03
Yeah, I really love that really, really, really enjoyed it. But there was a lack of learning on for some of my patients because the area had a very high poverty rate a lot of people couldn't read or write very well, so they weren't repainting the information that I was teaching them. And so home help is all about he could knows people out of the half, brother. You don't want them to get re hospitalized because the hospital have, you know, they will reimburse, man, and then if they lost, remember when they weren't gonna seeing patients are home care agency. And so I just started kind of trying to find ways that it kind of breaks the information down and get the information for them to learn it because I could go out. I figured I'd go out the pamphlets that the existence sends me, and I could leave you there with them. But they don't understand what is saying. There's, You know, there's nobody there, not learning, and so I would have just break things down into the way they could understand it. I had a friend that was a graphic designer and artist. He was dropped for me, making kind of understand it. So I just started blogging from there and then blogging counter card into like a freelance writing career.
Alli:
04:09
Well, that's really interesting. I just actually read an article about, um when you write what you're passionate about, that you're actually getting Maur information. Um, you know, you're you're actually writing in a way that where the reader can digest the information and retain it a lot better when it's coming from a place of passion. So that's kind of what it sounds like for you is that you just had this place where you felt for these patients. You're saying some of them may have gone to church with your grandma with your family? That's such a personal, such a personal event to be training those types of patients and then just to see that they're not really necessarily retaining what you're, you know, everything you're putting your time and effort into, so to get to a place where you're actually making, like, one on one information in a in a way that you know, that they'll understand and retain it. And it's led to this this amazing Oh, yeah, Tell me about your, um, what you're doing now, like the totality of what you represent and how you may be your day to day of like what you do now in your constant creation.
Portia:
05:10
Okay, so, um, I do like relating to riding or health care writing for different organization. Um, statistically, health care organizations that target, like nurses, the population. So there might be a platform that they want nurses to be the reader. I would reject it, but they were re jumped me, and I would say, Hey, you know, I'm a nurse. I'm a writer. What? I could do your platform, I would teach them. And they like the idea. You know, they take the bait, and then I will write some articles for them. That's my day today, basically, is. I do a lot of research on the anything that are right. I do a lot of lot of research on, so I might have an article. You guys see the finished product of what I wrote, but it might have taken me two weeks to research that are four weeks to research. It just depends on what you know with Constantine is I really, really enjoy that because I feel like nurses. Only a nurse can basically understand what nurse? But what we go through. You know what we like to read about where we're at. What we're going through. I really enjoy doing the nurses of Organizations. Now I'm going to get going into 2020. I'm really focused more on help here, batter so, like positions and are practitioner. They have their own practice who don't have time to pre constant. So they're seeing patients, you know, every day, 2030 pages. However, many patients they see, they understand that they need constant for their whip spider there blob of their social media pages. But they just either don't have the time or they don't have a desire to do that. And so they were outsourced back to me. And so my team and I would create, like, block post articles. We're gonna be going a little bit more social media management in from copyrighting service is going to be like their sales page views or their landing pages. I know a lot of nurse practitioners create course this that would be just like the different bills. Coffee for them.
Alli:
06:58
Wow. I think when nursing students are you looking at graduating, they think you know, hospital is kind of is their end goal, right? Yeah. They're gonna have a job in the hospital, and I don't think I talked to anyone that has ever imagined what you're doing now, which I think is fantastic because it's only possible nowadays, right? It couldn't have been possible, you know, maybe 10 20 years ago. So with this job, So I'm just curious. You said that you write for different nerdy and inerting nursing publications and an article like that Did you specifically find, like, maybe the publication and then research like who the contact point is Or how did you go about doing that?
Portia:
07:38
One organization that I wrote for I I actually sent him a pitch. I sound like I'm under will cry and I have the right for me half for me, for us Have something similar to that. And I'm minutes a pitch and did not hear Think that from them. I think I made it for life different times. It was like over course of the year if they got killed, the meeting, ma'am, I didn't hear anything back from down just being my patients. So what I did in the meantime, just like, kind of perfect my craft that took a lot of online courses on writing After I read a lot of books. All righty. I got engaged to some other nurses or break up their writers and some say, foot groups and learned a lot from Dam. And then I want their instagram page. It made a coming on Wonder Instagram Post. How can I write for you guys? I love right you guys And the constant director was human female with a pitch. So actually eat Nash. I heard email with the pitch I sent over my article and they really loved it. And from there I've been right from them. And there's different ways to write for different organizations. Sometimes you'll have to go in there well outside of being an entire article warning Higher block. That's what they want to do that they like. It will hit you back. I'll call you back if they don't like you might not know anything fun down. And then sometimes you submitted and it might be 69 list on the line. And you forgot that she was minutes a bet organization. But you know, that time they weren't ready for whatever it was that your peace with something could have happened. You know, it might be the time of the year in the event that went that was going on in nursing industry, their industry. And then they reach back out to you. And then sometimes you have to do a lot of research. Um, and you kind of have to dig around to find out who is their content director, who is their editor. You have to do some research like that, and then sometimes you just have different people in different industries. I'm have a lot of nurses that our healthcare writers, that that network with and so we'll send each other job. It's like there's something I know on that writing without, just like Hey, I know nurses do this breeze and they'll just for me
Alli:
09:47
Oh, that's great. So you've got kind of like your own team of individuals, each with their own specialties so they can kind of feed off each other and help each other out. So if you're able to kind of pointing at whoever has the whoever strength is in that field, right, that's really, really cool. Um, okay, so then once you're in, once you're able to reach out to the, um you know, whoever collects the content for the specific publication, and I'm sure it's different for each one. But is it more like Maybe they'll reach out to you and say, Hey, can you write this this specific article? Or do they have maybe, like a posting where there's, you know, different? Maybe a listing of different things they're looking for, Or
Portia:
10:25
what I've found is that some organizations are content calendar, so they'll say, This is the content that we're working on this month. Can you do an article on this? Some organizations that kind of value have free rein, and you should meet ideas them. They tell you yes or no. They like that idea on, and then someone like and then if you're working with, like a doctor or nurse partitions, someone was not really a big organization. There's just a small business. Sometimes most of the time they want usually kind of give them the ideas of what you think is going on. So in that is that you have to kind of stay on top of what's going on in. The industry has people on the industry, and so I do. A lot of research is going on in the nursing industry or health care industry. I'm in a lot of Facebook groups that might fit particle that popped up on my Facebook or Ned or something. And now research it and see it as something that's going on. Like when the Maysles, by the measles outbreak with litigator of the year being at about, needs elaborating. So I just build it in to see what was going on. And then I pitched organization and said, Hey, and I run an article on this, but do it from a sampling of what nurses need know about this.
Alli:
11:34
How interesting. Yeah, you're finding maybe a hot topic, and then you're kind of putting your own unique spin on it to make it relevant to their publication. Right? Okay. Oh, that's so cool. So as you're doing this, are you Are you approaching this as an individual? Like, hey, I'm Porsche, Or is it hand Porsche with and then the organization, like, what do you think is the best way to go about it?
Portia:
11:59
It just depends on the potential clients. So I do my business, actually. Actually, l l be so you know, it's a business. And so when I'm pitching to them, I'm pitching as not Portia, the writer. But I'm thinking that the founder I'm pitching as constant director for this organization. If you're just starting out, is there any nurses out there who are listening are interested in this. If you're just starting out and just be a freelance writer or you're not really sure if you want to form a whole business out of that, you can reject them. Hey, I'm Allie. I'm a registered nurse. I've been a nurse with this small and my specialty, I take back
Alli:
12:37
What is this? Something that you are doing? This is completely your full time job. You're 100% in on content writing and all of the things you're talking about.
Portia:
12:46
Well, it is a full time job, but I am still working a sinner full time. But this 2020 I will not be working as a nurse. A time or 2090 will actually be my last year full time. I might still do some P R E agent because I love a little being on Earth, you know, I want to keep my steals up the par, but it's like I'm working full time job right now
Alli:
13:08
that is serious. I can't even believe you just said that to be working. I mean, I understand what the research looks like. And then just the time to collect the data and then put it all together, Right? It's a minute. Resubmitted. Figure out who you're supposed to talk to you to submit it like that is a full time. So the fact that you're doing both is really fantastic. So it's probably given you, I mean, an overwhelming supply off, content to share and talk about and even I'm sure, Justin, your patient conversations you're probably always collecting. You know, putting that back in your mental files for future future use. That's really cool. But congratulations on on your plans for 2020. That sounds really awesome. So you're gonna be completely replacing your, um, income income. Yeah. Thank you.
Portia:
13:53
So this year, actually clean. I mean, I was actually up until this year, I actually worked a full time job in a Purana. Reports on job. So 2019 I was able to let go a bit sick and job because my writing time supplemented that income. I was really excited about that. That only have to work one job until my day job. I do staff development, but I get a lot of comfort from that because I'm always finding new things that you know, this in the industry in evidence place Friday, things like that. So next year I will be pretty close to my full time income. I actually have another best whoever business, but I worked on Lynch. So between those, I will be completely. But my writing service will be the book of that income.
Alli:
14:35
Wow, that's awesome. Good for you. So thank you. Yeah, that's great. So tell me, especially you mean, since this is a not this is not a common place. Um, it's not like a job that you hear about that you have created it all on your own and then to be to a place where it's self sustaining. That that's actually really amazing. Um, so what's the staff development piece? What does that look like? What do you do for that?
Portia:
14:58
Oh, I love it. Amazing. It's basically I teach in trying. All the nurses of the nursing department of this are in Ethiopians and certified nurse's assistant. I teach them anything new that's coming to the nursing industry. I make sure that they're complicit in their field. Um, and basically, I do a lot of a lot of peeking out of education because, you know, we never have enough. There's always something new that's coming down the pipeline. And, uh, Sam s looking for Medicare. Medicaid. They rolled out a whole new, um, like, a reimbursement plan. So that happened this year were there in the last days this year. So I had to get all the nurses and all the sea and a, you know, caught up with that. And so they can be familiar with the new processes that, you know, gonna impact our industry.
Alli:
15:48
But with that in a physical location, Are you doing that all on, like, a blob platform Or How are you doing that?
Portia:
15:55
No, no, it's an actual physical location. And I work for, ah, long term care facility. So we're gonna work for corporate corporation. They have, like, 77 or eight different long term care facilities throughout Georgia in New York. So I worked for them Director development. That's what my position is. Paul and I come in, I work for them, and I just, uh yeah, just do about taking education for the nurses in the
Alli:
16:22
so those those positions go hand in hand perfectly because you're constantly researching. You're constantly you've got your finger on the pulse of what's new, What's coming up, Where
Portia:
16:31
you
Alli:
16:31
finding most of your, um, where you doing? Most of your research.
Portia:
16:36
So I look at different nursing journals. I do. A lot of I go online and you Google whatever you want to go. But I have this when you google, whatever it is that you're trying to Google, you also have to make sure that that sword incredible. You know,
Alli:
16:51
you don't
Portia:
16:51
wanna find something that's not credible, and then you write your writing on and someone calls you out. That's not true. You know this working as a writer. I think that could ever happen to you. I do a lot of like a nursing journals that incredible I do. Let's go to a lot of nursing organizations. So, like, you know, American Nurses Association, any type of nursing association. If I know that Incredible. I found you don't go on that on and then sometimes I even lost library sometimes. And just look at the health care station of the medical section and see what they have new with their thinking new and even if it's not new, even things that were happening 10 15 years ago. You know, there's been up to that research on that, So I could just for those books. And I'm looking at the person who worked the book or look at the editor and going and Google, you know, ladies information from this person or we were better stories.
Alli:
17:42
So I'm sure there's an etiquette in submitting your completed articles. So are you When you when you finally, you know, got an article completed and you've got all your source decided. Are you submitting this? Just tow one publication, just to be sure there's no overlap. Are you admitting it's a multiple contacts or like, what's the etiquette there?
Portia:
17:59
So most of these organizations they only want you made to them because they don't want anything that's been printed. Someone else, some real, which makes sense.
Alli:
18:07
I
Portia:
18:07
don't want, you know. So usually what you can do is when you submit, they'll say, Well, give us for weeks, give us they'll give you a time frame and you haven't heard back from my fans and please feel free to shop this memorial. So that's etiquette with that. Once you submit it to them, you give them a little time to research because they don't have to. Do you know they're back on Homeworld on us? A little time to make sure you didn't plagiarize. But I have to make sure that you know your source is incredible in given To make sure that it's edited formatted correctly, you give them a couple of weeks so that if you don't hear back from down bending, I was free to shot bed. You know, some real um and then a lot of my clients have contracts with I absolutely did not. I sent it to them. And I hate you like this. Yeah, they like this. They're gonna use it. They've been there. They may not ever publish it on their fight, But defences I have a contract with them. They paid before acting. That news that real.
Alli:
19:00
So are you getting paid once the contract is written or you getting paid per article or what is a typical contract? Look like
Portia:
19:06
I'm so contracts were very just opinion on you. Some of your clients will actually seen you a contract and you look at it and you make sure that you're protected and major client is protected. And then some of my clients have not had a contract. Not actually has been damp. I have, like, a sand arrived. Son tried that I used. And I tweak it, you know, to make the appropriate for the client asking them, and your contract will have your soul before, which is where you gonna do for them. How many articles you're gonna write, how long your are becoming words you are gonna be, How many revisions that you would give them. And then it also will have with your pricing how much they're gonna pay you have. You're gonna pay you if we're gonna pay you, like through PayPal. If they're gonna pay you like through a chick. If you're gonna do that to rate on deposit in your bank Now, how long they have to pay you if they don't pay you what's gonna happen?
Alli:
19:54
So did you kind of just research all this yourself and put it together and or did you have any other nurse writers that you kind of connected with that could kind of help you with the Facebook group. That kind of helped you write your own contract out.
Portia:
20:06
I'm kind of research my bill, and and also the groups there. Tons of basic rules work, nurses who want to be writers. And that kind of just look quietly looking into groups and single people were talking about. And I research myself, but also took my contract from the attorney just to make sure, you know, your singles legally, okay, And that I was protected. And, you know, I didn't leave anything out that I'm inferring the attorney. Look over it. I'm just a generic contract. And once she okay, did I knew with me to use? Um, it's just a lot of my clients are out of state. So you also have to, you know, think about that when you're doing your contract that your client say their state laws may give yours and different things like,
Alli:
20:47
Wow, you know, I didn't understand how much or how many nurses were actually writing articles for nurse publications. It is, since I started on professions is kind of coming, You know, I'm getting more and more e mails I'm getting more and more, you know, aware of how often nurses are writing. I think it's fantastic, but I do have a question. So when you're doing this type of research and you're putting out this kind of the type of publication, are there any specific qualifications besides a sort of nursing license that you have to have in order to access, You know, to have access to writing those types of things
Portia:
21:21
people want, You have experience, They want you to have a portfolio. They want you to. Baber show samples of your writing A lot of times people, especially if they're not themselves the nurse or just here. They don't care if you are Indian or guilty. If you know what you're talking about, you know how to write the country and and when you prevented them incredible country, and they should be back by researching evidence based Fred, they don't care. You know what? That's gotta live, but most of them do want you to have some experience already. They want you to have experience and they want you to have a portfolio. Um, and that can be looking online portfolio there. Different platforms. Studio use a light. Make your own online portfolio. And that's basically just like, you know, I'm link and then you'll have won. No, mainly that you can say, Hey, this my portfolio, you ultimately, they go to that link and then they can look at all your writing. Um, if
Alli:
22:13
you
Portia:
22:13
do not have, ah portfolio, I would suggest that you reach out to organizations of different people and say, Hey, can I do a gift article or gift block post for you? But when you're doing that, you also want to make sure that it's beneficial for you as well. So you want to make sure that person has no the numbers like they have the whip fight traffic. They have the social media practices. Well, I'm actually gonna be working on something next year. Novak, get nurses who want to get to this industry, but they don't have a portfolio. I'm gonna be working with some people that will, you know, give her a chance a chance to get their names out there. So portfolios of good being on and then you can always go school portfolio where you just type it up and you just send them different links to your to your articles, but it's better to just have them all in that one place. So it's easy making to make it easier for your.
Alli:
23:07
So then you probably just have, like, you have your own website and maybe just to make a page that links all your different publications as of now and
Portia:
23:16
then, Yeah, you can do that. Um, So what I do is I could use, um how can you think of the name of it? But I use, um, you can do like, instantly, instantly Isn't website where you can go and you can put in links all of your, um, your articles and you do your portfolio and then they'll give you one. Like if I wept, fight one wrapped tightly, and you're just in your clients. That one will fight later. When they click on that link tells me everything that you've done. If you don't have a link to an account, I suggest that you get a LinkedIn account and forbidding your link in the campus about your LinkedIn account. You can also could you know, Linc, the things that you've written,
Alli:
23:54
okay? Yeah. And, you know, I just saw the other day that you can actually publish within lengthen and have the option to share. So if
Portia:
24:00
you could
Alli:
24:00
do it that way, are you able to also send it? Probably not, huh? Problem?
Portia:
24:05
No, because you're already published. It, um, like a Theo purposes. They want to make sure that it's not been publishing where it does not get for bear Theo. Which engine optimization is not good for them. It's been published somewhere else.
Alli:
24:21
Oh, that makes sense be. These are things that nurses aren't used to thinking about. It's a whole new world in content writing. So can you share maybe a couple of the courses that you took Or do you remember off the top your head that that helped you figure this out? Are then are they still available?
Portia:
24:39
Um, yeah. There are a lot of three courses out there, but when I first got free Yeah, Mom, find a mystery, but everything's fine. Um, so you to me, you to me dot com They have a lot. Of course is that you can say I from the courses. I ordered a lot of books off of Amazon, so I would go and I will order. I was typing like book for new writers. Look for a novice riders, things like that. I typed up that in and then look pop up and I was just really read the reviews. And I asked you, have you ever heard this book, or have you ever heard this author? What do you think about this? Um, and I would just read those books, and then the best thing for via get Ryder is just to write, you know, I would just like copyrighting copy. Writing is something that I just recently found interest in, but I've become really pretty good. It just literally I have a Google doc. I will sit down three times out of the week, and I'm just right is right. And, you know, you're only gonna get better when you do it. Practice makes perfect in the writing world,
Alli:
25:42
and that's so true. And it's almost like you just have to sit down and let it suck for a while until you get to the good stuff. And that's one thing I've learned is just, you know, that whole wanting to add it as you as you go along. But you know they say that the creativity can't be edited out. You just gotta let it go. Just sitting sitting right, Right. Until something good comes out, then you just gotta crap out the rest. So how often? He had three days a week. But how long do you think you sit there before something you get to gold with
Portia:
26:11
me? It just depends. It depends on you know my move. My mom said I have to clear my mind when I'm writing. I can't. No Exchanging emails. And one thing about being creative is that have the lift going through my mind Like I could be riding down the road and I see a red bird and I'm thinking, Oh, I can Something comes in my mind. I think of something to write about a red bird. It slithers out, however note. So you that quite a lot This is dot you know, Get out my way out. My word. Get out of my fault. So that come back later. So if I Maybe two or three hours a day, Um, not all at one time. It might be 15 minutes here and maybe 50 minutes there. And I'm just sitting down and I'm writing things. Um, after really good. I love every note. The minimal app on your phone. No. Everyone has that memo app. That's really good. Um, sometime I'm just sitting in my office. I think of something and I could write, you know, I just know jotted in my memo at that later on, when I come back in, you know, field around that continent
Alli:
27:09
that's so true was like your best ideas usually come when you're not trying to come up with anything and so having it. Like you said, having your your phone and do it just right in the quick memo, just say OK, this is great idea. Don't wanna forget it. I'll get back to it later. I swear my phone full of those. But I need to get back to him. That's the problem. So with all of your books, I'm just curious with the books and the courses on how to be a better writer, I feel like a lot of people think that you either have it or you don't. Um but, you know, you've already said that as you done it, you've gotten even better. But what what
Portia:
27:42
do you think

is one of the biggest things that you learned just from the books. Just from the basic how to start writing like, what was your biggest takeaway from some of that?
Portia:
27:52
I think my biggest takeaway so far is that you can just about learned hospital any being if you take the time to do it. I've always been a writer. If I was a little girl was always comes. It comes quite easy to me, the right, but like a far copy writing, that was something new for me. But I was determined that I was gonna learn how to do it because I knew that my clients, they needed that. And so I just sit down on it after like, if you take the time, you could almost learned how to do anything that today is the world of you duvet social media. And there are people learning how to, you know, do anything out of the Internet. I think it's nurses know we're pretty smart people. You made a nursing school, you passing clicks pretty smart person. So I think that you can just learn how to do anything that you want to do. If you know that you want to do and you're passionate about it. I think a lot of people in the writing thinking Oh, it's gonna be, you know, might be a little easier side money. But then they figure out I don't really like right. You know, I really like the research. Not what I thought it was going to be. So if you're passionate about it and you like the time, I think that you could learn how to do just about anything

And can you just clarify one more thing for me? So for those nurses that are listening that are not writers yet what is the difference between writing and copyrighting?
Portia:
29:09
Okay, So cocky writing is are basically the words that you see, unlike sales pace. So you know Facebook. Add the words or coffee when you're on someone Foshan media page spells words or coffee with someone, You're someone's email list. They're sending you out. No e mails of about this new thing. They're doing those work with copy. So copy writing is that was not copy writing like no fucking Detroit marking copyright something. Eventually coffee in the world riding W R C I D. is about basically connecting with people through your words to move them from some foreign action. Do whatever action is that you want them to do.
Alli:
29:48
Okay. Thank you. Um, so just
Portia:
29:51
one more
Alli:
29:52
question. If there was one thing that you could say to the nursing students that are listening right now, what would you say to them?
Portia:
29:57
I would say that while you're nursing school, you think you know what you want to do. And you have these big ideas of what you want to do, and then someone shoots you down. You know, they feel you have to start out in May 3rd. You can't do basically should do Mad Bird. You know, you can't do this unless you do this. You have to do this. I think that nursing is a big wide industry. And as we're going into 20 point, which babying the year of the nerves that people are starting to realize that nurses have you no more. We care more weight than what people wouldn't want to give us. People trust us. We're you know, every year revolted the most trusted profession. So whatever it is that you want to do with the nurse create your own line. Don't let anyone put you in a bob

That's so awesome. And that's really what you've done. Thank you so much for sharing because, like I said, I don't think many people know that this is a position and I think it's There's so much room for more nurses to be writing, and I think it kind of empowers us even more to be doing more research and being what's new. What's trending, what up incoming. What's gonna be there to support us as nurses in the future and get the word out? I think that's really exciting. So thank you so much for sharing. So if there's someone listening that wants to reach out to you to learn more or wants to maybe look into 2020 maybe being you know, a new writer and wants your help, where can they find you?
