Reasons to go to nursing school

Correction needed. You said that once you have a nursing license, you can work in any state. That’s not true. While many states do have the compact license rule, not all do. As a podcaster, you should research topics before stating something as fact.

For aspiring or new nursing students

I have found this podcast so helpful as I’m debating going to nursing school as an adult with an already established career and bachelors in psychology. I’ve really appreciated all the easily digestible information, tips and tricks. Keep the episodes coming!! I’ve literally devoured your current episodes and need more!

Thank you for the Anki rec

Thanks for your podcast. Really liking the Anki flash card app. Quizlet wasn’t working for me for flashcards. I like that Anki repeats cards that I flag and the shuffled daily sets are great to do when I have five minutes in the day. Your deep dives into topics are great. Thanks!

Love it

Short episodes, tips and tricks to remember certain things, real life. Very helpful! Please keep the episodes coming!

New listener

Hi !! It’s my 1st week of nursing school. I am equally excited and terrified. I love the quizzes that you did throughout the head to toe assessment episode. It really helped my understanding. Thank you !

Children too young for school

Props to Melanie for the podcast on, are you too old for nursing school? I am a single mom with young children in her upper 40s! Never wanted to be in this position, but that’s how life is. Dreamed of going back to school and have made multiple unsuccessful attempts. I did get a bachelors degree in a field that just didn’t fit right out of college. This podcast helped put things in perspective.

The best content for newly accepted students

I’ve been on the hunt for this exact podcast it feels like it was made for me. I got accepted into a competitive program last week + have been frantically planning out every detail of preparation even though I still have two months before my program starts. This podcast has every piece of advice I could want all in one place with a super soothing voice too!

Excellent content into short episodes

I have relistened to these episodes many times. I am preparing for an ADN program and I am following Melanie’s systems . I love how they’re quick episodes jammed with information that I can use with the student perspective. This brave soul actually started a podcast IN nursing school . That’s intense , thank you Melanie .
