    How Do You Make Alzheimers Funny?

    How Do You Make Alzheimers Funny?

    How do you make Alzheimer’s funny? On this episode of N&H our special guest Dayna Steele joins us to talk about her theatrical performance of "The Woman in the Mirror," a dark comedy about Dayna's journey navigating through her mother's Alzheimers diagnosis.
    Dayna Steele was one of the top rock DJs in the country and made waves on Rock 101 KLOL. Rolling Stones, Van Halen, Joan Jett, and many other rock legends knew her on a first-name basis. Then, she became a best-selling author, a motivational speaker, an entrepreneur, a candidate for Congress, and, now, a playwright and a Broadway investor. But, along her public journey, she also faced personal struggles. One low point was her mother's battle with Alzheimer's Disease. She wrote her experiences and frustration of being a caretaker into a book, which is now being adapted into a play, "The Woman in the Mirror".

    Bastardization of the NP Role: Navigating the Complexities of Nurse Practitioner Practice & Education

    There's a huge push for Nurse Practitioners nationwide to practice independently. However, not all NP's are created equally or have the same education, training and experience. In this episode of N&H special guest John Canion joins us to discuss his paper " 2023 Report on Nurse Practitioner Education and the Need for Change." We'll also talk about the DNP role, the role of the Emergency Room NP and so much more.
    John Canion is a Nurse Practitioner who is board certified as a family nurse practitioner and an emergency nurse practitioner. He has been practicing as a nurse practitioner since 2005 and has filled many roles as a nurse practitioner including: urgent care, family practice, critical access, hospitalist, associate professor, emergency medicine, has sat on the American Association of Nurse Practitioners education committees, and has started grass roots efforts to affect change in nurse practitioner education. He is currently practicing emergency medicine full time and has written an article about the need for change in NP education.
