My guest today helps nurses rediscover “the nurse within.” Elizabeth Scala, a healthcare podcaster, and the host of Your Next Shift is a one-woman media company. She’s also a nurse and the author of Nursing from Within and Stop Nurse Burnout. Elizabeth is also a frequent keynote speaker on the topic of nurse burnout. With her RN/FM co-hosts, Keith Carlson and Kevin Ross, founded the Pulse Media Network to help bring more healthcare podcasts to audiences.  Our conversation will focus on, you guessed it, nurse burnout and the stresses unique to the field.  Join us for our conversation on Get Social Health.

Healthcare Podcasting and Content Creation

Meet Joe Lavelle. He’s the host of the IntrepidNow Healthcare podcast. He is also the co-founder of a healthcare media empire, IntrepidNow. What I love about his exciting new venture is the reason he started this business – so he could get off the road as a healthcare consultant and coach his son’s ball team. Now he is focused on using the medium of podcasting to create marketing content and sales opportunities for his clients.

As a result of reaching out to other healthcare podcasters, Joe is also one of the founders of a new weekly Blab, the Healthcare Podcasters. He will be joined by Jared Johnson of the “Healthcare IT Marketer Podcast,” Todd Eury of the “Pharmacy Podcast” and me, on behalf of the “Get Social Health” podcast in a weekly Blab every Monday at noon EST.
