Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items we’ll take a look at how you fit into your perfect nursing specialty with a personality review.

Then in this week’s special tip segment, I bring you a look at a new technology that hopes to revolutionize the way that diabetic patients who are insulin dependent manage their disease on a daily and hourly basis. I got the chance to sit down and interview patient advocate Kerri Sparling and diabetes researcher Dr. Korey Hood about some new developments in diabetes tech. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.
