Sean Dent

The Change of Shift Podcast- A Voice for Nursing

My guest today on the Get Social Health podcast is Sean Dent. He’s an acute care Nurse Practitioner and the host of the Change of Shift podcast. He’s also one of the early social media adopters in the healthcare space giving a voice to nursing. The role of the nurse has many contradictions. On the one hand, it is the most respected profession in our nation based on a recent survey, however, when you hear and read what nurses are saying and printing online, it presents a story of frustration, of challenges, of lack of respect, and even danger.  Let’s hear what he has to say on Get Social Health.
