Fresh and informative
A fresh and interesting look into the nursing profession from multiple angles. Easy to listen to. Very enjoyable!
Just listened to the “Baptized in blood” episode from March 21st. How crazy for a first day!
It definitely gives me a higher level of appreciation for people that work in emergency rooms. I can’t believe they’re able to move on so quickly from something as difficult as losing a patient.
I listened to find the zebra episode and really enjoy his story starting as a nurse and progressing forward and all the lessons he learned from nursing and how he still uses them today. The interviewer did a great job and bringing our quite cool stories as well. Some of the diagnosis were intense but quite interesting!
