On This Episode:
As we celebrate the release of our 200th episode, it seemed fitting to shine the spotlight on the profession as a whole and the people who devote their lives to helping others. Many CRNAs, and nurses in general, don’t give themselves enough credit for the work they do every day. So today we’re going to take a big picture look at the power of nursing and the innovation we’re doing that could change healthcare with Rebecca Love, RN, MSN, FIEL.
We asked Rebecca to be a part of this conversation because she encapsulates this idea that nurses are so much more than how they’re defined. Beyond nursing, she’s also an entrepreneur, inventor, author, the first nurse to have a Ted talk, the first Director of Nurse Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Northeastern School of Nursing, and founded the first nurse hackathon. Being at the forefront of change has given her a unique perspective on the industry.
On this episode, we’re going to pull back and take a wide look at the profession and what we all might be able to accomplish over time if we keep pushing boundaries.

“The CRNA space is by far the largest entrepreneurial organization of nurses in the country. They have something that no other group of nursing has done, which is they’ve largely broken away and represented themselves back to hospitals and negotiated the terms of which they work.”-Rebecca Love, RN, MSN, FIEL
