Nursing Uncensored

Nursing Uncensored

is creating podcast episodes about life as a nurse
Welcome to the Nursing Uncensored Break Room on Patreon. I am Adrianne Behning, nurse, creator, and host of the podcast. I'm excited that you're here and I have some exciting things to offer you to keep you around. First I want to explain why I'm doing all this...the writing, recording, editing, networking, promoting, website maintenance, etc. It's a one-woman show over here and what a ride it's been. 


 The Early Days
 When I started this side project, I hoped it would have a positive impact on new nurses and students and fill a gap. While I was in nursing school, I found lots of great content on the science of being a nurse - pharmacology, pathology, time management, technology in hospitals, you get the picture. I listen to many of them still, years later and credit them with teaching me more than I can quantify.

But I wanted to create something that chronicles LIVING as a nurse - the day-to-day experiences that you can’t find in textbooks or on other shows. The things I wanted to hear about as a student and new grad were topics like overcoming anxiety and fear, getting better sleep while working night shift, and finding ways to be happy in a stressful career, to name a few. These are things that are often universal among nurses even though we all have unique careers and patients.

A Brief History     
So I started this podcast with a couple of nurse pals in the Autumn of 2017. Andrew, Brad and I recorded from different states on our cell phones with almost no audio processing afterward. I was overjoyed when the show got its first 100 downloads. Now my mind is blown with thousands of downloads a week. Those founding friends, Brad and Andrew, have awesome aspirations of their own to chase, but they pop back in from time to time. This is how the one-woman show of Nursing Uncensored came to exist.

It's Happening
Over the last few months, I've started to see the podcast's impact on listeners which has both humbled and empowered me. I’ve received messages from all over social media - people wanting to tell me about how they found the show and how it's affected them. They tell me that my episodes made them laugh, cry, or challenged them to look something up and learn more. The listeners I relate most to are my binge listeners. I've been known to binge really good shows. People have reached out to me for advice and support, and have provided it to me in return. This side project is growing into a community that at one point I thought was only a daydream. I’m in it for the long haul, and that’s why I am asking you to join me.
