The Nurse Becoming Podcast 

#090 Becoming a Nurse in Media with Dr. Patrice Little

Featuring nurse voices in the media is needed now more than ever – especially beyond the clinical industry. 

When nurse practitioners and RN’s know how to contribute their stories and unique perspectives to the wider world, it bridges the gap between the unknown and understanding.

But also, expressing yourself is a hard thing to do. 😬 

Which is why I am excited to introduce you to Dr. Patrice Little, Board-certified FNP and Founder of NP Student Magazine.

In today’s episode, Dr. Patrice Little and I discuss:

  • Patrice’s nursing journey and career progression – how Patrice blended her passions of media & science to create NP Student Magazine
  • Why it’s so important to have more nursing voices featured in the media
  • How to get started contributing your voice in the media!
  • What’s next for NP Student Mag – and why you should consider getting involved!

And so much more… (I mean it. We talked mental health, law of attraction, racial reconciliation and Patrice’s next big projects.)

This is one of my favorite episodes of 2022 so far. I hope that this episode can excite you to take the leap & put yourself out there more!
