Love it!

Hi Nicole! I love your podcast and I told my nursing students about it too! I love that you have people from different areas of nursing. It has helped me gain a new perspective on many areas of nursing. I love how Daniella said “nursing tasks don’t define what nursing is”. There is so much more to nursing!

Fun and Interesting!

This podcast has a unique atmosphere where nurses get to share their story and their experiences. It brings light to so many different areas of nursing and it is bridging the gap between licensed practitioners and students training to become one. What a great way for students to hear real life stories and to get a glimpse of what it might be like some day for them! And what a fun way for the nurses to give back and build up the next generation!

Delightful

A delightful telling of personal mishaps, opinions and adventure. One has lessons to learn from, opinions to disagree or agree with, and story’s to just entertain. Either way with listening, like the goal in healthcare; no harm done.
