    #8 - Was Florence Queer?

    #8 - Was Florence Queer?

    HAPPY NURSES WEEK! This is a very special episode, because I’m talking all about Florence Nightingale to kick off Nurses Week. To start the episode, I’m sharing the best method to get the perfect scoop of ice cream with my listeners. I used to microwave my ice cream until I found the ultimate ice cream scooper!

    Then I get into the life and legacy of Florence Nightingale. I’m sharing her story in detail to show how her extraordinary efforts in nursing contributed to the development of modern nursing as we know it today.

    One part of Florence’s story that remains a mystery is her personal life and relationships. My husband and I share our experience learning more about Florence in London a few years back, and we provide some evidence that may lead some to believe that she was a part of the LBGTQIA+ community. So, was Florence Nightingale queer?

    #7 - "You're Just a Nurse"

    #7 - "You're Just a Nurse"

    To kick off the episode I am spilling the tea about the HAIR I found in my Starbucks drink. As if things couldn’t get any worse- there has been an oat milk shortage! Am I switching my allegiance to Dunkin Donuts? After that I talk about my new favorite thing, my Tovala (not sponsored)!

    Then, I am diving into all the misconceptions the general public has about nursing, and breaking down what a nurse actually does at the bedside. I am calling out public figures who have made wild claims about nurses during a game of “Who Said It?”. To wrap up, I get into jobs beyond the bedside within the nursing field. If you’re unhappy with your current role, there is no need to leave nursing all together. The world needs more incredible nurses like you!

    #6 - Life on the Night Shift

    I’m talking all about the night shift for this week's episode. My husband and I will be rocking pajamas, and we’ll describe our bedtime fits for our listeners. We are also celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary! I share our last minute wedding day story, and explain why loosely planned events can turn out to be the best sometimes.

    Then I get into my experience on the night shift, and the differences between working at night versus the day shift. I also read some creepy night shift stories from our listeners! After that, Brett and I play “This or That- Job Edition”. Would you rather be a Gastroenterologist or a Coal Miner? If you’ve ever been curious about what it’s like to work on the night shift, this episode is for you! Shoutout to all the awesome night shifters out there.

    #5 - Our Coming Out Stories

    #5 - Our Coming Out Stories

    This week, my husband and I opened up about our own individual coming-out stories. We start off by talking about our childhood celebrity crushes. Were you Team Backstreet Boys or Team NSYNC? Then, Brett talks about coming out later in life, and the response he received from friends and family. I share my own coming-out story and my experience with going through conversion therapy as a teen.

    We also discuss the importance of visibility in healthcare, and why the nursing field needs more diversity. Remember you are who you’re meant to be, and there are many people out there who want to love and support you. You are never alone.

    #4 - I Failed My Nursing Entrance Exam

    This week, my husband and I talk about my new favorite Starbucks drink, going to Starbucks in Seattle, and our newfound appreciation for oat milk.

    Then we delve into our first jobs, and the jobs that helped prepare me for nursing school. It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows though, because I FAILED my TEAS exam! We get into failing and trying again, then we test our knowledge by quizzing each other with TEAS exam prep questions!

    #3 - Dating a Nurse & Our Breakup

    This week, my husband and I dive into our relationship history. We talk about how we met, our Temptation Island obsession, who had the last scoop of protein powder, and test each other to see if we know our favorite fast food orders.

    Then we talk about our relationship before I started nursing school to Brett dealing with me on the night shift. Spoiler alert- WE BROKE UP! We explain the breakup and the reconciliation. After that Brett talks about our crazy acrobatic plane ride date for Valentine’s Day.

    We answer viewer questions and give advice for anyone who’s currently dating a nurse or nursing student. To close out we read shoutouts submitted on my website nurseblake.com/podcast. Each week we will take on a new nursing topic and bring up questions and stories submitted by our listeners.
