A warm welcome to my new visitors. How about some introductions?
My name is Sean. I am an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP). I have been in the nursing profession for just under 15 years. Nursing is my 3rd career.
I’m an O.G. diploma-trained nurse who started in a 16 month accelerated diploma program. I practiced at the bedside for about five years before I went back and got my Bachelor’s of Science then onto my Master’s of Science in Nursing and became an ACNP.
Oh, I also broke the mold and I started my career as a new grad in the ICU.
I have worked in the ICU my entire career, outside of a three-month span where I had a lapse in judgment and worked for an orthopedic surgeon. In the ICU world, you name it, I’ve worked it. I have worked in all sorts of ICUs both large and small. From the large teaching hospital to the small remote community hospital. I have worked in cardiovascular, medical, trauma, neuro, surgical, and oncology ICU.
About 10 years ago during the pre-Facebook and pre-Twitter era, I started a small lil’ blog sharing my stories –> HERE.
10+ years later I’m still blogging. In 2016 I posted a video (vlog) every day for a full year. I posted 365 videos consecutively while working my full-time job. Check them out –> HERE.
In addition to my blogging, I am also a (former) podcaster (I think I have ADHD). I’ve been the co-host for The Nurse Niche, The Change of Shift, RNFM Radio, and the FreshNP podcast.
I currently do a vlog Q&A series called “Hey, Sean…”. I answer questions from the nurse tribe. (They usually start the question with the words, ‘Hey, Sean…’).
If I can help you in any way, don’t hesitate to send me your questions.
In my “down time” I am also a public speaker.
I am always available, I love hearing from other nurses. I love communicating with the online nursing community any chance I get. Thanks for hanging out with me.
Before ya go… find me on social media… tell me how ya found me… introduce yourself!
