The Nurse Becoming Podcast 

#043 Dr. Vanessa Kasper & I React to a Viral NP Video

“I’m quitting my job as a nurse practitioner.”

Spoiler alert – I’m not! And neither is Vanessa Kasper, DNP – my guest on today’s episode. 

A couple of months ago, this video went viral in the NP community. Go ahead and take a gander if you haven’t already, and then come back.

I’ll wait. 🙂

Talk about click bait, am I right??

Anyway, a bunch of people sent me this video and asked for my thoughts, and Vanessa and I started chatting about it in the DMs.

So obviously, we decided to record a podcast episode with our response!

Vanessa Kasper is a doctorally prepared nurse practitioner and the host of the healthcare podcast, Dose of Support – an interdisciplinary show that highlights the healthcare working, their role, their stories from practice, and their self-care strategies.

I know you will love hearing from Vanessa, and I think you’ll enjoy hearing our perspectives about:

  • Whether the NP market is oversaturated, and how that should affect your career decision making
  • Who should and shouldn’t become a nurse practitioner
  • As well as our dreams for NP education overhaul and improvement


Enjoy! I can’t wait to hear what you think.
