The Nursing School Roller Coaster with Jillian: Pt. 2

The roller coaster continues this week with Adrianne and Jillian. We’ve got another hour of loops, corkscrews, turns and mega-dives - all conversational, of course. They talk about a million more things related to nursing and school. Some of those things include:

  • Rallying your team and keeping goals in your sight.

  • Failing isn’t the end of the road.

  • How to speak up as a new nurse.

  • Not needing to know everything right now.

  • Dealing with anxiety, fear, and doubt.

….and this stew of topics is peppered with humor and curse words to keep it interesting. 

We can’t wait to hear more from Jillian as she approaches and conquers the NCLEX. 


This episode is sponsored by Trusted Health.
Trusted health is a company built by nurses, for nurses to help travelers connect with great job opportunities efficiently and with transparency.

They’ve replaced the traditional job search and staffing approach with an intelligent matching platform -- empowering nurses to discover opportunities that fit their unique experiences, preferences, and goals.

Instead of a commission-based recruiter, they use Nurse Advocates -- nurses just like you (some of whom have even traveled!) who work commission-free. Because they’re all commission-free, their goal isn’t to get nurses into any open jobs; instead, they focus on connecting each of their nurses to the travel assignments they want and supporting them every step of the way - before, during, and after their assignment! 

And just in case you’re wondering, Trusted Health comes right out and says it: no, they won’t hound you with phone calls and emails about jobs that you’re not interested in. Just the information you want, when you want it.

Join Trusted - they’re not just an agency; they’re a movement.
