The Excitement, Challenges, and Satisfaction of Rapid Response Nursing
On episode 401 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Sarah Lorenzini, an expert Rapid Response Nurse Educator and the host of the awesome “Rapid Response RN” podcast. In the course of this inspiring conversation, Keith and Sarah discuss the magic, excitement, challenges, and professional satisfaction of rapid response nursing. Bringing clarity, comfort, hope, and calm is something Sarah loves providing her patients when they’re at their most vulnerable and frightened, and she also deeply enjoys being a rapid response nurse educator. If you find rapid response nursing and trauma fascinating — whether it’s your chosen career path or not — this episode will be a very fulfilling listen indeed.
Sarah Lorenzini is a Rapid Response Nurse and Educator who loves telling stories to teach critical thinking. Her nursing career started in the ER, and she has since worked in the Cardiac ICU, on the Rapid Response Team, taught as a Nursing Professor and ER Nurse Educator, and COVID brought her back to the bedside as a Rapid Response Nurse once again. Sarah holds a Masters degree in Nursing Education along with her CCRN and CEN certifications. She has taught ACLS, PALS, and NRP, and is a speaker at multiple nursing symposiums.
On her podcast, “Rapid Response RN,” Sarah shares real-life stories from the frontlines of nursing and breaks down the pathophysiology, pharmacology, and the nurse’s role in caring for that patient.
She is married to the love of her life, Neil, and together they have five children and one grandson. She enjoys exploring the outdoors with her family, crocheting warm things even though she lives in Florida, and gummy bears.
