Absolutely love the podcast. I just finished my pre-nursing associates and have applications submitted to universities in my area... I want to work in an ED one day, and this was exactly the podcast I've been looking for. A perfect mix of motivation and clinical information that is accessible without being overly esoteric, this is definitely a podcast I hope will continue! I loved the first installment of chief complaints (especially liked the pneumonics... I've got PET MAC down!), and I'm excited as I just saw the new one on DKA pop up.
Keep up the fantastic work Cameron!
Cameron allows the new ED nurse a focused look at central topics relevant to the ED nurse. Great refresher for experienced ED nurses as well.
Great work Cameron! You provide a great resource for the adrenaline driven environment. Cool music too! Rock on fellow nursing podcaster!
