A warm welcome to all my new followers. 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 in Nursing and then onto my Master’s of Science in Nursing and became an ACNP.
I 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. Worst 3 months evah).
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.
About a year ago the (nursing) tribe started sending me questions. I noticed that every time someone had a question for me, it would start with, “Hey Sean…“. So my vlog series called “Hey, Sean…” was born. I answer questions from the nurse tribe.
If I can help you in any way, don’t hesitate to send me your questions. This website was created to gather all my thoughts and answers in one place. Have a look around, let me know what you think.
In my “down time” I am also a public speaker.
If you’re interested in learning more about me, you can always visit my website –> HERE.
I love hearing from other nurses. I love communicating with the online nursing community any chance I get. Thanks for hanging out with me.
