Today on The WoMed, Sonja Schwartzbach, AKA Nurse Sonja (@nursesonja), joins D and Dani to share her journey through the world of medicine from publishing her first book, to finding her voice on social media, to heading back to school once again to become a nurse anesthetist. Nurse Sonja didn’t always know what she wanted to do with her career, but after a lightbulb moment following a family health scare, Sonja quit her corporate job and headed back to school to become a nurse. From her meme-filled Instagram to her outstandingly titled memoir, Oh Sh*t, I Almost Killed You!, Sonja has continued to inspire nurses in and out of the hospital. Sonja and the hosts discuss the unfortunate power of nurse guilt, the dangerous side of social media, and the important need to listen to your gut and follow your passions. Plus, hear Sonja’s unexpected story of meeting her nurse faery godmother and her resolution for the year ahead. Happy New Years, WoMed!
