One of the things I love most about hosting RN.FM Radio is the wide diversity of amazing nurses who we have the pleasure of connecting with on a regular basis. From the day when we launched in January of this year, interesting and dynamic nurses have come bounding out of the woodwork, and there seems to be no end to the line of willing potential guests ready to grace our airwaves.
While we’ve admittedly focused on nurse entrepreneurs–from coaches to healers to writers–a plan is indeed afoot to broaden the conversation in 2013, and we’re working hard to attract an increasingly diverse spectrum of guests.
Here at RN.FM Radio, we realize that we must be doing something right, especially since the number of people listening to our show continues to grow, and the feedback we receive is that our listeners love the format and appreciate our freewheeling, open-ended interview style.
In 2013, we’re looking forward to frequent “roundtable” discussions, wherein several guests appear on the show simultaneously to hold forth on various issues related to nursing and healthcare. We’re also excited to continue to feature dynamic and inspiring guests who are interviewed for the entirety of a given episode.
We recognize that Internet radio allows listeners to tune in to RN.FM Radio at their leisure rather than listening live. However, we also encourage our listeners to consider tuning in at broadcast time when they’re able to do so, especially since we’d love to have more listeners joining the conversation by calling in to the station and posing questions or comments to ourselves and our guests.
Meanwhile, we’ll continue to offer every archived episode through our Blog Talk Radio website, as well as free downloadable podcasts of every episode via iTunes.
Remember, RN.FM Radio is really here for you–our listeners–and we want to hear from you, whether it’s commentary, praise, or constructive criticism. Our show is an organic, growing entity, and we’re willing to bend with the times and the desires of our listenership, as well as changes in healthcare and the nursing profession.
We believe that nursing in the 21st century is worthy of optimistic attention and a continually broadening definition of the very concepts of nurses and nursing, and we feel that many of our listeners and fans share that optimistic view.
As nurses gain increasing autonomy in advanced practice–while the nursing community at large courageously expands the definition of what it even means to be a nurse in the first place–RN.FM Radio wants to keep our fingers on the pulse and our ears to the rails.
So, if you hear rumblings of something new coming down the tracks, give us a shout and let us know what you think is happening. We want to know what’s going on out there, and your input and interest is what keeps us on the air, bringing you high-quality radio for, by, and about nurses and the nursing profession–a profession to which we are permanently, deservedly and excitedly committed.
