Why I’ve Started a Podcast

Podcasting, where do I start with this one.  I don’t know about you but I absolutely love podcasts. I’m a natural-born book lover, I’d choose books over movies any day of the week. When I was little my head was always nestled inside a book and still is. I think it's...

Healthy Habits to Adopt as a Nurse (or anyone)!
