has 15 years experience as a ADN, BSN, MSN, APRN, NP and specializes in ICU.
I’m an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP). I have been in the nursing profession for just under 15 years, been an NP goin’ on my 7th year. Nursing is my 3rd career.
I'm an O.G. diploma-trained nurse who started in a 16-month accelerated diploma program. I broke the mold and I started my career as a new grad in the ICU.
I practiced at the bedside for about five years before I went back for my Bachelor’s degree and then onto my Master’s degree and became an ACNP. After 7yrs, I’m actually going back for my DNP Spring 2020.
I have worked in the ICU my entire career. In the ICU world, you name it, I’ve worked it. I have worked in all sorts of ICUs both large and small. From the large teaching hospital to the small remote community hospital. I have worked in cardiovascular, medical, trauma, neuro, surgical, and oncology ICU. Oh, I also did travel nursing.
Over 10 years ago pre-Facebook & pre-Twitter I started a small lil' blog sharing my stories. ⠀⠀
10+ years later I'm still blogging, in town with video. In 2016 I posted a video (vlog) every day for a full year. I posted 365 consecutive videos about nursing while working my full-time job.
I’m a former podcaster (I think I have ADHD). I hosted & co-hosted at least three podcasts. ⠀⠀
I do a YouTube vlog Q&A series called “Hey, Sean…”. #heysean is where I answer questions from the nurse tribe. (They usually start the question with the words, ‘Hey, Sean…’). If I can help you in any way, don’t hesitate to send me your questions.
My “Daily Sean “ vlog is just me sharing my life lives on the edges.
I’m also a public speaker. I believe coffee is a good group. I eat bacon every day. And, I have 18 tattoos, including a left arm sleeve. ⠀
