So helpful

Nurse Mo,
I’m in my second semester of nursing school (online because of COVID). Your podcast is so helpful to me and my study group. We can really tell that you care and just want to help us succeed. I listen to you while I’m at work and walking my dog in the morning. Thank you for all of your time and effort that you put into this resource for us. I have a concern that I’m not going to be a competent nurse because I am missing out on so much patient facing clinical time, I feel like it was so helpful last semester to making the connection between theory and actual patients.
Thank you for all you do!
Tessa

I was looking for a nursing podcast to listen to while I exercise or do other activities around the house! I always feel guilty when I’m not studying but this is a great podcast for on the go studying!! Love the PodQuiz aspect. Nurse Mo is amazing and super easy to listen to! Thanks Nurse Mo, you’re helping me pass my NCLEX!
