Transitioning Towards Non-Traditional Nursing Roles with Joshua Littlejohn, Product Manager of Nurse Experience at IntelyCare, and Danika Meyer, DXP Product Owner at Children’s Health Care System
Being a bedside nurse is not your only option available; this episode features two professionals with many parallels in their non-traditional nursing careers.
This week’s guests on the SONSIEL Podcast are Joshua Littlejohn, Product Manager of Nurse Experience at IntelyCare, and Danika Meyer, nursing professional and Product Owner at Cook Children’s Health Care System. They share their journeys transitioning towards non-traditional, non-beside, but equally impactful roles in nursing when delivering patient care and what their current roles consist of. After having just transitioned into an application analyst role, Danika reached out to Joshua on LinkedIn due to his jump into a product management role. Since that initial message, they developed a mentorship relationship. They explain the difference between an application analyst and a product role, the former being more focused on the technical work and information services and the latter being more strategy-focused and business oriented. They talk about how nursing should be thought of in an expansive way as there are plenty of roles that can bring value to the table with different types of knowledge that still support patient care. Danika and Joshua speak about how SONSIEL has created a sense of community around bringing innovation to nursing.
Tune in to this episode to learn about transitioning to nontraditional nursing roles and how you can still support direct patient care doing them!
