ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Registered nurse Kathy Quan from The Nursing Site joins us on today's episode of the Nursing Assistant Podcast to discuss home care and hospice nursing, her journey from dancing to nursing, and her current role as a quality assurance nurse, blogger, and author of seven books.
Kathy's goal is to help other nurses and healthcare professionals transition into different fields within nursing. After starting her writing career with About.com, then transitioning that content into her own website which quickly became a treasure trove of information for nurses and nursing students, then becoming an accidental author that spurred a career that produced 7 books including -- The Everything New Nurse Book (2 editions), 150 Tips and Tricks for New Nurses, The New Nurse Handbook, The Everything Guide to Careers in Health Care, The Everything Guide to Caring for Aging Parents, a popular e-book Time Management Skills for Nurses and her newest book, Exploring the Home Care Experience.
Listen as Kathy and show host Patricia discuss quality assurance, home care and hospice nursing challenges, Kathy's transition from a dance major to nursing, how Nurse Alice (aka "The old army nurse") influenced her journey, how a "math challenged" nurse obtained a minor in math, and much more.
