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!

This weeks video is a Q&A with my mom, a registered nurse with 30 some years of experience! This is part 1 of a 2 part interview series with her. In today’s video we talked about what kind of nursing she’s done, what her favorite specialties are, some tips for dealing with challenging co-workers and surgeons, what shifts she has worked, and lots about Nurse Practitioners. It was really fun interviewing her, and I hope you enjoy and learn something from it as well!
Accelerated Nursing Programs are a great solution if you already have a Bachelor Degree in something other than nursing, but wish to become a registered nurse. I went through an accelerated BSN program years ago when I changed my major late in college and decided to pursue nursing. In this video I go over what an Accelerated BSN program is, what the prerequisites are, how to succeed in one, and what you can expect once in the program. I’ll share my work experience, and how to have balance between life and school while in nursing school.
