Celebrating my Twitter friend, MK Czerwiec, the Comic Nurse, who has helped create a nursing specialty that combines comics and nursing to promote education and healing. She was a guest on the RN-Mentor podcast to share her nursing journey and to talk about the release of her most recent book, ‘Menopause: A Comic Treatment.’ The book, which MK edited, is an unconventional view of menopause through comics.
Enjoy the podcast and then join in the celebration of the book launch, with details below:
