This week Adrianne chats with Nurse Margo about aromatherapy use at the bedside, specifically in palliative and end-of-life care. They discuss how aromatherapy is used in the hospital setting, as well as how Margo approached this evidence-based project, and how she helped improve essential oil use on the unit. The moral of Margo’s story however, is that any nurse, regardless of years of experience, can impact bedside practice and contribute in meaningful ways.
Adrianne is joined again by Craig of the popular nursing brand Keep It Real RN. They're back to teach you how to go from massive poopstravaganza to squeaky clean patient with as little stress as possible for everyone involved.
This episode is gross, funny, informative, and destined to make you a poop cleaning superstar.
This week Adrianne wakes her friend, night nurse and Doctor of Nursing Practice, Nurse Lo from her slumber to bring you the dish on the DNP life. They cover a lot of ground including the trajectory of Lo's career from LPN straight through to DNP with no breaks. She also talks about what it's like to do it all as a mom.
This week we dive back into Adrianne’s marathon call with her good friend and travel nurse Lindsay Dingbaum. Since they can get their gab on like pros, they covered a LOT of information like...
-The multifaceted nature of a nurse's emotions
-Advice for new travelers
-Narcotics and end-of-life-care: a nurse's discomfort
-Dealing with undesirable assignments
-Getting used to a new place as a traveler
-Designer scrubs (yes, they go there again)
...and a million other little things on their minds.
This week you're dropping in on the conversation Adrianne had with her old pal Lindsay, a traveling nurse and cool human that she can literally talk to for hours and hours on end. They cover many topics in this episode including how Lindsay caught the travel bug, weighing the pros and cons of different contracts and locations, her adventure dog, licensing for travelers, and getting tricked into wiping butts of patients who really can do it themselves.
I think part two of my talk with Dorothy is as profound as it is irreverent. Dorothy explains how people die as they lived and we ponder elements of 'a good death'. We absolutely must address the need for a morbid sense of humor in high-stress, high-trauma fields, as evidenced by almost every joke we crack. Then we dig deeper into her work as a medical examiner investigator and explore the classification system used to document death by the Medical Examiner.
In this episode, Adrianne is joined by nurse and medical examiner investigator, Dorothy. She's lived a very interesting nursing life so far and has such great perspective on being an advocate for all patients. Dorothy is going to tell us all about her days in the Operating Room, home hospice and how she goes about investigating the deaths of people all over her county. NSFW but, boy, is this interesting. Pt 1 of 2.
