Good Nurse Blake (Yep the very one!) Bad Guardian Nurse
Nurse Blake joins Tina to celebrate the podcast's one-millionth download!! Together they explore the life of Texas nurse Evelyn Mokwuah who owned two healthcare facilities in the Houston area. They also review the movie "I Care A Lot" which was loosely based on a similar story. You'll definitely want to stick around for the Good Nurse story to get a glimpse into how Nurse Blake got his start in nursing and activism. Finally, Tina shares another satirical article about two nurses accused of accidentally starting a Ponzi scheme in her new "Not Necessarily Nursing News" segment to close the show.
