Brilliant!

I’m a finance/tech guy and if I could do it all over again would have studied medicine. Part of my passion stems from good teachers/Easy to understand material like this podcast. My only complaint is that they are not as frequent as I would like! Thanks for the knowledge and inspiration

Getting me through Nursing School

This is an amazing podcast for last-minute review for those nursing tests! They're short and to the point and offer great mnemonics. I love this podcast and wish there was more content from instructor Gwin!!
