Nurse practitioners are the fastest growing occupation in the U.S., and will be for the next decade.
They represent the highest median salary among the other top 10 fastest-growing professions, and are in such high demand in part because of the shortage of physicians and the aging baby boomer population. Nurse practitioners are able to fill many gaps in care, like mental health and primary care, and also represent a very accessible health care career path.
Host Tamar Rodney is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and today’s guest, Danielle McCamey, is an acute care nurse practitioner. Dr. McCamey is the Assistant Dean for Strategic Partnerships at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, as well as the founder of DNPs of Color, a networking, mentorship, and advocacy organization for DNP-prepared nurses of color.
Listen as they dig into all the best things about the profession, and since it’s also black history month, into how the profession uniquely serves multicultural communities as well.

February 26th, 2024: In this special Sneak Peek for Season 1 of UnHack (the podcast) with Drex DeFord, we are excited to discuss The Healthcare and Public Health Sector Coordinating Council (HSCC) 5 year strategic plan with Greg Garcia, Executive Director. This conversation was just too good and timely to wait, so we are sharing it with you today! With this 5 year plan, the goal is to make it easy for hospitals to work together for effective cyber defense. So, are all organizations in the healthcare spectrum ready to rise to the call in implementing it? And how does this dovetail with the burgeoning areas of practice such as hospital-at-home, healthcare on-demand, and artificial intelligence, among others? We all have a part to play in achieving the strategic goals for safer, more effective healthcare delivery in an increasingly digital and interconnected world.Subscribe: This Week HealthTwitter: This Week HealthLinkedIn: Week HealthDonate: Alex’s Lemonade Stand: Foundation for Childhood Cancer

The intersection of biomarkers and repurposing: The latter could help us figure out which of the former to focus on which could be the difference between a drug making it.
Friend message - “And I wanted to tell you about the worsening behavior with treatments: a friend of mine has a son with Dravet syndrome, and many years ago they started him on a drug that reduced the seizures quite a bit, and my friend used to say “with this new treatment cleaning his brain from all those EEG interferences, we are starting to see more of his personality… and we’ve realized that we don’t like him”. Very harsh but very real to say”
