We wonder why nurses sometimes feel painted into a corner or shoved into a box, and what myths (and brainwashing) persist about what nurses do and what they're capable of. This leads us to a conversation about the media (the news, TV, Hollywood) and how they pigeonhole nurses or egregiously ignore nurses altogether.

Today's show was recorded going Mach V because we had our pedal to the metal. Well actually, Elizabeth had her pedal to the metal and you'll find out why when you tune in. In this episode we expand on your "why" and discuss the reasons why some nurses are just all in, or rather getting things done, while others might feel a bit stalled in their endeavors. What's your why and how do you stay on task?

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.
