Alissa and Evie open up to share their worst days as med-surg nurses and provide perspective, tips, support, and encouragement on how you can face those difficult days.
Alissa Brown, BSN, MSN, RN, CMSRN is a clinical nurse educator from the University of Utah Health. She has been working in the health care industry for almost 12 years, and started her nursing career as a med-surg bedside nurse on an Ortho, Trauma, and Surgical Specialty Unit. It was through that experience in the med-surg unit where she discovered a passion for education, and pursued a master’s degree. She is a lifelong learner, and loves to teach. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, she's not all work, and definitely enjoys play! She loves to travel, and tries to plan as many vacations each year as she can with family and friends. Alissa loves to read, listen to podcasts, and geek out to documentaries and crime shows on the weekends. She's a total fair weather fan when it comes to Utes Football, but will cheer in all the right places, or get mad when her husband tells her to during a game. Alissa is looking forward to conversations together on this AMSN podcast!
Evie Harris, BSN, MA, RN, FNE lives and works in Baltimore, MD and has been an RN for 4 years, and is also a Forensic Nurse Examiner. She works on a busy med-surg unit in the roles of staff RN, Charge RN, unit education council representative, & preceptor. Evie has previous careers in management, teaching, & on-air radio co-producer/co-host. Her future career goals include nurse management & nurse administration, as well as nursing entrepreneurial endeavors. Evie enjoys spending time with her daughter, traveling, laughing at all things, and anywhere there is music, you will find her singing & dancing, even at work, with her patients & colleagues.
