Wassup tribe! 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 bachelors degree and then onto my Masters degree and became an ACNP.

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.

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.

In addition to my blogging I am also a podcaster (I think I have ADHD). I am currently cohost the FreshNP podcast, where I am the head writer and content creator.

I currently do a vlog 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.

If you're interested in learning more about me, you can always visit my website I am always available, I love hearing from other nurse. I love communicating with the online nursing community any chance I get. Thanks for hanging out with me.
