The Change of Shift

The Change of Shift

thechangeofshiftcom.wordpress.com
Stories and interviews from an ICU nurse practitioner on the front lines. A transparent, brutal-honest approach to surviving the world of nursing, with a side of dark humor. The “Change of Shift” is when you hand it off to the next person. We take care of others by taking care of ourselves. 👉 Hosted by Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Sean P. Dent, MSN, ACNP-BC, CCRN Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thechangeofshift/support
