Retaining the Passion: Writing for Nurses

We are back for a new session with a new presenter, Dawn Marr whilst Craig takes a break after tying the knot to the love of his life, Patrick.  Dawn was a guest on the pod in Season One and will join Clare for the remainder if Season Three. 

This episode see Dawn and Clare catch up on what they have been doing during the extended break and keeping you all up to speed with some exciting job changes!

Writing is a skill that all Nurses need and learn through their training but this episode focusses on moving that forwards and how as a Nurse we can still use a wide variety of writing in practice and for our own development.  Dawn and Clare discuss their own journeys in writing and how they have found this has changed since being students. 

Joining the Pod for an interview Dawn and Clare are delighted to have had the chance to interview Heather Henry who has recently published her first book - Be a Leader in Nursing for Student Nurses.  Heather is a Queens Nurse and Writer and nurse entrepreneur. Heather talks to Dawn and Clare about all types of writing from academic and peer reviewed articles to creative writing and poetry.
