A brief read of this online resource made me aware that I have not undertaken before an analysis of my nursing career. I am at a stage where I am in a team-lead role and looking at having some informal 1:1 interviews with my team members and was looking for a resource to use to aid these interviews. I found the resource material really confronting as it made me aware of some areas in my own nursing career and personal life that need attention. Really helpful - thank you.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
