Listen 00:48:46

Guest: Margo Brooks-Cathon, Lisa Laphan-Morad and Julie Rovner

“Oh, you’re just a nurse?” Many nurses deal with just that sort of comment on a regular basis. Yet, daily they perform important life-extending and life-saving work. We’ll discuss the public perception of the field and the daily work nurses do. We’ll be joined in studio by registered nurse practitioner MARGO BROOKS-CARTHON, an Assistant Professor of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania, and and Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner LISA LAPHAN-MORAD, the associate chief nursing officer at Cooper University Health Care. And for a big picture look at how the field has changed, and the impact of the ACA, we’ll talk with JULIE ROVNER, Senior correspondent for Kaiser Health News.
