This week Joe surprised me with a new Apple Watch for my early birthday present after I murdered my last one. In today’s video I thought I would talk about how having an Apple Watch has been helpful while working as a nurse. Do you need one, what are the benefits, etc. I’ll also discuss how I use the apple watch in my current job as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Other things we will talk about this week are how to prepare for well child checks, my overwhelming day at work, and what I always send my patients home with from their primary care visit. We celebrate Avery’s birthday early with my mom, and have a fun weekend out as well. Thanks for watching!
