Retaining the Passion: Nursing Families – Living with a Nurse.

Welcome back! And hello to all our new podcast family and listeners! Clare and Craig are truly delighted to return for series two, and cannot wait to delve into many new topics with you as they journey through nursing. 

In this, our first episode back, they discuss nursing families, in particular, living with a nurse, and are joined by three very special interview guests, each with unique experiences of living with a nurse. But first, Clare and Craig catch up and discuss the proposed 1% NHS Agenda for Change pay increase and International Women’s Day!

Next, Clare interviews Ethan Jackson, the son of critical care nurse, Kayte Powell, to chat about what it’s like having a mum who is a nurse. Then Craig talks with Clare’s husband, Stuart Manley, who shares his insight of being married to a nurse – the podcast husband meets the real-life husband! Lastly, Clare has a heart-to-heart with a fellow nurse mum, who just so happens to be Craig’s mum, Carole Davidson, who is a neonatal intensive care nurse, and registered children’s and adult nurse.

Following the interviews, Clare and Craig reflect on the discussions and their hopes for series two…
