It’s FLU SHOT season yet again! This video explains how I talk to my patients about the flu shot, and answers common patient questions I get regarding the flu shot. I go into how I respond to different common concerns regarding the flu shot, and how I like to educate patients so they can make the best informed decisions for their families! I have used these talking points as both a bedside nurse, nurse practitioner student, and a family nurse practitioner.
This week Avery had her 15 month check up, and we got an update on how she is doing! As many of you know, she was diagnosed with Failure to Thrive at a few months old, and its lead us down a challenging path involving developmental delays, speech delays, and so so many “bugs”. I’ll give you all the details in this weeks video! And explain what I’ve learned from the whole experience, and how it has changed me as a nurse and nurse practitioner. As usual, I’ll take you on my weekly shenanigans and work adventures. Thanks for following along!
This week we will play true or false with your healthcare myths, assumptions, or gut feelings. I asked over on instagram if you would send me some of your healthcare assumptions, and you guys delivered! In this video we talk about TV show vs real life, realities of being a nurse and nursing school, and lots more! I hope it gives you a slightly better understanding of what being a nurse or nurse practitioner is like, while debunking some of those healthcare myths you always wondered about!
