Nursing on a Wheeled Throne with Andrea Dalzell, RN, BSN
This week’s guest is acute care nurse and real-life mermaid Andrea Dalzell, RN, BSN who also happens to be former Miss Wheelchair New York! In this episode, you’ll get to hear about how Andrea found her advocate voice in the nursing profession as well as her deep passion for applying her personal experiences of being a patient to bedside care. Her career path has not come without obstacles; Andrea shares with D how her place in the nursing program was questioned on the very first day and having to do 76 interviews before getting her current position. These experiences have not curbed Andrea’s motivations. She talks about what it really means to be a self-advocate and how able-bodied allies can amplify the voices of people with disabilities.
