Each month, we will host guests who are experts in topics from climate change to pregnancy to palliative care. And we’ll hear some of their personal stories too – why they got into health care and what drives them each day.

Health care is complicated, and it’s always changing. But stories of resilience, helping people across the world, and developing ground breaking research is what nursing is all about. We can’t wait for you to join us!
