CEN Dream Come True!

I have been studying for my CEN exam that is coming up and found Ninja Nerd’s videos on YouTube, thank goodness! The videos are thorough and easy to follow while doing an excellent job of explaining the pathophysiology behind each video topic as well as considerations, treatment, etc. I’m so excited to listen to these podcasts now, too!
Thank you, Ninja Nerd crew!

So stoked!

I found you on YouTube yesterday! I’m a respiratory therapist now going to school for speech language pathology and so much of it overlaps and all your information is amazing!!

Excellent

This should be the standard of medical education. Clinicians who can follow the KISS approach when teaching are truly masters of their craft
