UpFront: with Canadian NPs

UpFront: with Canadian NPs

By Rachel
This is a podcast where Nurse Practitioners come together to share, discuss challenges, and inspire. The goal of this podcast is to bring NPs together and build a community in a profession that often can feel isolating. We are here to learn more about NPs working in Canada, why they do what they do, what they love about their jobs, and what inspires them to continue doing the work they do.
