    Millennial Nurses Are Everyday Changemakers

    Millennial nurses are changing the frontier of nursing and here is one way they are doing it: by chasing down all career aspirations.  When I started nursing (I sound old lol), being a nurse was it.  Once you made it to the floor you worked your way up the hierarchical ladder.  But this nurse, Ingred Prince, is proving to us that nursing may be just the tip of the iceberg for those who have other career goals.

Very Needed

This platform that Nikki Akparewa has started is very needed. Especially with the health disparities that we still face in 2020. I’ve just started listening and I appreciate the efforts put forth by a fellow nurse and black woman.
