DailyNurse.com and Springer Publishing Company are pleased to announce the launch of our new podcast, NurseCasts! Hosted by Joe Morita, Senior Acquisitions Editor at Springer, NurseCasts is a podcast for nurses by nurses. Our goal is to help you understand issues in health care affecting nurses from how to advance your nursing career to understanding policies that might affect patient outcomes.

For our very first episode, we wanted to better understand what motivates nurses to join this fast-paced and fulfilling profession. In order to do so, we took our show on the road to interview attendees at the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) conference in Dallas, TX. We wanted to learn one thing from student nurses: “What motivated you to join this profession?”

Meet the student nurses you’ll hear from on this episode:

Kylee (LSUHSC School of Nursing, New Orleans, LA)

Emily (Messiah College, Mechanicsburg, PA)

Kimberly (Graceland University, Lamoni, IA)
