Wow we needed this!
Listening to this podcast literally feels like breathing a huge sigh of relief—hearing other people’s stories about nursing and the intricacies of the day-to-day, the funny, happy, surprising stories and the common frustrations that nurses encounter. The medical field really needs more spaces like this podcast to talk about our motivations, our struggles, and our journeys...especially after the intensity of this past year. It allows us to connect and feel validated while sharing ideas and solutions. At the very least, listening to nursing uncharted will make you feel less alone, but more likely, this podcast will help to reignite a passion for nursing and even reveal new opportunities that maybe you hadn’t considered before. I look forward to new episodes/can’t wait to hear more stories :)! 10/10 recommend. Thank you Maggie Reichard for being the best host for this much needed podcast!!
As someone that does not work in the medical field, it was hard for me to really wrap my head around what others were experiencing throughout this last year. Maggie and Sam do a great job here painting some of the highs and lows of not only what it was like to be a nurse in this pandemic, but an ICU nurse in the pandemic and the sort of realities you have to brace yourself for. Really eye opening and a perspective I think a lot of the general population could also benefit from.
Passionate, Quality Conversations, Relatable, Inspiring!
Covid happened and the host, Maggie, just dives right into the first episode. It’s nice to hear other people around the world talking about the real struggles of last years impact. I can’t wait to hear the next episode. Tuning in from Denver!
