Your Next Shift: A Nursing Career Podcast

Feb 10, 2016

Our next guest has a beautiful background and truly unique nursing history. While her nursing career path may not have been straight and narrow, we can learn a lot form the circular trajectory our guest reflects on. It certainly highlights how a nursing career can take many turns and the profession of nursing allows for great opportunity.

A few take aways from our interview with Barbara:

  • How a crazy career path finally led to nursing;
  • What can be learned from a nursing series of adventure books;
  • And why what we learn from others can help, and also hurt, us!
