Michael Pergrem, also known as Coach Perg, is passionate about helping nurses lead the most fulfilling lives possible. In his own words: “I realized there is a great need for nurses to find their true path, either within their careers, or if desired, in pursuing an alternate calling. I came to realize I could better serve those I had cared for by caring for those that serve them (my fellow nurses). Helping nurses avoid or recover from burn-out and rediscover their passion in nursing could only serve to enhance their effectiveness in providing care to those that need them, both at the bedside and at home. "My mission is to help those other nurses who, like me, have discovered a burning desire to move on, in a different direction, be that a different field in nursing, or a different field altogether. “In either case to find their path that leads to: Realizing the boundless possibilities that are achievable, self empowerment, and joy. These are the rewards given to those of us who serve our true calling with passion.” We will spend this episode of RN.FM Radio exploring Coach Perg's approach to nursing burnout, nurse wellnes, nurse coaching, and his signature coaching methodology known as "Pergology". Join us for an insightful episode of RN.FM Radio with special guest Coach Perg!

My Mobile Medicine was started in 2008 by Jody Hoppis, a Nurse Practitioner who wanted to bring a more personal, adaptable form of Family Practice Medicine to patients in Whatcom County, WA. With everything she needs in a simple bike trailer, Jody has been caring for her patients over the past 2 years, bringing them quality care and medical treatment that comes from an experienced professional. Because of her unique method of care, she is able to spend 45 to 60 minutes with each patient, much more than the average 10 to 20 given in a clinic setting. Jody's personal goal is to merge the best of both Western and Eastern medicines, utilizing concepts from each to model complete care. Her highest priority is for each of her patients to feel listened to and well-cared for - a priority that is evident by the happiness and satisfaction of her current patients. Mobile Medicine also offers a less complex approach to communication. Jody makes it a priority to save her patients' time by doing the traveling for them, ensuring that people miss as few work hours as possible.
