Well, it’s Nic here. Let me give you a bit of background.
Sue is the founder of the Nursing CPD Institute, as well as the Nurses for Nurses Network. Sue co-founded these businesses to empower nurses with their clinical prowess. You can hear more about Sue and her story in Episode #4 of our podcast.
I am a nurse with a background in theatre nursing, education as well as senior and executive nursing leadership roles. I run Nurse Manager HQ. My bag is nursing culture: whether that’s helping nurses communicate with their team, with their clients or with each other. You can hear more about my story in Episode #5 in our podcast.
Sue and I have worked together for years now. We’ve waxed lyrical for most of that time on all things nursing. We met Mark Aitken a little while ago and all the things that Sue and I had discussed ad naseum were all the things that Mark felt passionate about as well. The big issues that Sue and I had intuitively felt nurses were worried about with our interactions through Nurses for Nurses and Nurse Manager HQ were mirrored back to us from Mark and his work with Nurse + Midwife Support. Nurses were worried about how to progress their career, retirement & finances, wellness and where to go for educational opportunities
And so that was it! We knew we had to put a platform together to give nurses the information, resources and stories that they needed to live their best nursing life. Nursing + Midwifery Emporium was born for exactly that reason. Sue’s and my vision was to create a place where nurses could access a variety of non-clinical information about their careers and the lifestyle of being a nurse.
