“One thing is hard to ignore – nurses need better treatment. Nurses need a seat at the table and advocacy. Nurses need to raise their voices, listen to each other, and unify to achieve the progress that we need to improve our workplace safety, manage and prevent burnout, and promote patient safety.

Nurses have traditionally operated with our patients’ best interests at the core of our professional life. Now is the time to advocate for our best interests as strongly as our patients. If not us, then who? If not now, then when?”

Jessica Reeves is a nurse practitioner.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Florence Nightingale. Clara Barton. Radonda Vaught?”

This episode is sponsored by the Stanford Physician Leadership Certificate Program.

For the aspiring physician leader, leadership skills are one of the most important and influential traits that will elevate your overall success. 
Leadership impacts nearly every aspect of your career in a complex and diverse health care system. Including how you effectively communicate and influence those around you, how you respond to conflict and make important key decisions, how you develop your team, and even how you navigate social dynamics in your workplace. 
Stanford Medicine recognizes the need to foster physician leaders in health care. That is why they developed the physician leadership certificate program. This 6-month cohort-based program includes live virtual sessions, self-paced learning modules, professional coaching, a capstone project, and much more: Providing C-suite education for the non-C-suite physician leader.
They encourage all early career and aspiring physician leaders to apply. To find out more about the program or apply, visit
