Hi, my name is Sean..

Welcome to my website.  I started out as an RN diploma graduate and now I am an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. I've been a nurse over a decade and in healthcare for over 20 years.

Nursing is my second career. I know what it's like to have to start over.
I've worked in telemetry, orthopedics, surgical services, oncology, and travel nursing. I’ve also worked in cardiac, surgical as well as trauma ICU.
After practicing as a bedside RN for several years, I returned to school, pursued and attained my MSN.
I currently practice as a Board Certified Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP-BC) in a Shock Trauma urban teaching hospital.

You may recognize me. I’m the former blogger for Scrubs Magazine and the YouTube channel Scrubs Beat.

I've been a Nurse and Nurse blogger for over 10 years. I'm the host of The Daily Sean Vlog.

I release a daily video

On my Facebook fan page I release a daily video which is equal parts guidance, education, mentoring and plenty of humor called 'The Daily Sean'. Every night I tell a story to help empower Nurses.
