I am a nurse of 36 years (critical care); a PhD prepared certified nurse educator; and a soon-to-graduate FNP student. One of my FNP preceptors recommended your podcast. I am subscribed and hooked. I appreciate the delivery of evidence-based, scholarly content, mixed with a great deal of fun! The podcast page is especially helpful for reviewing content and references. I recently subscribed to CribSiders as well as I enter my pediatrics rotation and look forward to delving into that content. Thank you for producing these excellent shows! Teresa S.
