Life saving!

Not only are Nurse Mo’s podcasts and study sessions spot on for what you need to know, she also responds to personal questions!
I have just finished a 12 month accelerated program and had an interview for my dream job today. The interview questions on the website were on point and she responded to my email about possible ICU clinical scenarios that might come up.
I feel like I couldn’t have done any better today and find out if I got the job next week. My hopes are high! Thank you, nurse Mo!

One of my favorite influential podcasts!

Thank you so much for what you’re doing with this podcast! I just listened to your post recent episode about q&a for new grads and it was full of so much useful information! It really gave me a better understanding of how to approach this fast approaching time of graduation. Sometimes it feels like I’m not prepared at all for what’s next in this journey but your words were comforting and really gave me a better idea of how I need to move next.

Nurse residency episode

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your recent nurse residency episode. From a generalized opinion, I absolutely love your entire podcast. I've been listening since mid way through my science pre-reqs, and am now one semester away from graduation/pinning wooooHooo. Your show is by far the best out, and I've tried dozens of podcasts, apps, sites and beyond. I'm terrible at leaving reviews in general, however, I had to leave one for your new residency addition to the show. I've searched so many resources to try and find a sensical, informational delivery of what a nurse residency program is and what benefits are encompassed within one- and it's been impossible. I've even attended a zoom event specifically for a local health network's residency program that was an information session, and I left still not fully grasping the idea. I NEEDED this episode, it answered every question and curiosity I had regarding them (and I'm sure many other students as well). I am now 100% invested in choosing this path during the application process. Thank you again, and thank you for your major contribution to nursing in its entirety.
