We don't want you to think that we're never sorry, but what we are trying to say is that there are plenty of situations that a nurse shouldn't have to apologize for. Some of these examples may even be weighing you down personally, but they don't have to. 

On today's show we share some tips on how to find that "balance" of when and when not to be sorry.

You might think we're getting ugly on this episode by using "that word," but we're actually just shining a spotlight on the opportunities you can find in failure. That's right, failure can be a great meet up for what not do next time. So, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and let's head over to success on this episode.

This is definitely a question we get asked, and the subject of many conversations around here at #RNFMRADIO. So you're a new nurse, but you're looking for a job and no one is willing to hire you without med/surg experience. How do you get that experience if you can't get hired? Is med/surg the only path to pursue right out of nursing school? Are there other opportunities where you could get hired without this experience?

All these questions, and more will get answered on today's episode.
