    Good Nurse Papa Bad Nurse Stephanie Stephens

    Good Nurse Papa Bad Nurse Stephanie Stephens

    This week Tina is joined by David Metzger of the Nurse Papa podcast. Together they tell the disturbing story of a nurse determined to marry a doctor...even if he was already married to someone else. Dr. David Stephens brought cardiothoracic surgery to the state of Mississippi. He was well respected and revered until the decision to get involved with the nurse who worked for him would change his life forever. 


    They close the show with a spotlight on David to celebrate the release of the Nurse Papa book. You will definitely want to stick around to the end if you want to hear Tina blubbering like a baby when they get to talking about the patients David has cared. You will also want to make sure to listen to the very end to hear the first chapter of the book.

    Good Neurodivergent Nurse Bad Nurse Jennifer Nibbe

    Good Neurodivergent Nurse Bad Nurse Jennifer Nibbe

    This week Tina is joined by Jami of the hit nursing podcast The Neurodivergent Nurse. Together they tell you the absolutely perplexing case of nurse Jennifer Nibbe. When police arrived at Jennifer Nibbe's home she told them she had heard a loud noise while in the bathroom and saw a masked man standing over Jim with her shotgun. She told the investigators she believed he had the intention of assaulting her, but he was spooked by the family dog before he could. Brady, her son, was asleep in his room, slept through the entire attack, and was unharmed. He told the police that he didn’t hear or see anything. They close the show by discussing Jami's hit podcast, The Neurodivergent Nurse and why even if you have been told by professors or other nurses that you 'don't have what it takes to be a nurse', you should never give up on your dreams!

    Good HIV Nurse Bad HIV Doctor

    This week Tina is joined by ICU nurse and educator Justin Alves with DKB Med. Together, they discuss the troubling story of Dr. Sam Chachoua, a trained medical doctor who turned to alternative medicine and lied about the results. Made infamous over claims he cured a famous Hollywood actor, his dangerous, unproved methods almost killed the famous actor and could have impacted countless other people. We will also talk about the incredible story of Mary Magee, the first U.S. medical provider to accidentally contract HIV from a patient. Known as “Jane Doe” for many years, Mary has been an advocate for nurses, the LGBTQ+ community, and worked to end the stigma associated with HIV.

    Good Nurse Life RN Bad Newlywed Doctor

    Good Nurse Life RN Bad Newlywed Doctor

    This week, Nurse Leah joins Tina to tell the inexplicable story of a doctor and nurse couple whose wedding day went horribly wrong. From the outside looking in, Scott and Kelly seemed the perfect couple; the two worked together at Union Hospital in Terre Haute, Indiana. She was a nurse and he an anesthesiologist. They had a beautiful home and had planned a wonderful wedding. Their coworkers, friends, and family happily attended the nuptials, which quickly deteriorated with the addition of alcohol. Scott and Kelly got into an argument over money. And after his card was declined at the reception venue, Scott took off without his new bride. The party followed them back to their home, but guests quickly left after an explosive argument broke out.


    Tina and Leah open the show with a little chat about the fact that Leah happens to use CBD oils from CBD Stat, one of the sponsors of our podcast. They close the show honoring the life of Ebi, the nurse who created the popular Instagram account, NurseLifeRN.
