About Host, Leanne Meier, BSN, RN, Radio Host
Leanne Meier has passionately been a nurse in nearly every area of Hospital Nursing for over 40 years. After a series of professional and car accident injuries, in 2014, she began giving back to the profession by teaching RN's returning to nursing, after various amounts of time away. She poured her passion into that work, also. The result was 12 sessions of people, who came into the class in terror and unsure if this was even something that was possible for them. They left the class saying, "This class changed my life," "I learned more here in 10 weeks than I did in years of my original training," and "You have GOT to find a way to get this out to more than a handful of people in this class!" So, she did. In August of 2017, Leanne went out on a scary limb and started a live, online Radio Talk Show, called "Once a Nurse Always a Nurse: Exploring the World of Nursing" with VoiceAmerica.com. Her first show had 62 listeners in 4 countries. Her most recent statistics, one year later, show 27, 600 listeners in 51 countries, with that number rising 1000 – 2,300 listeners each week. When she started, she had 6 connections on LinkedIn and now has 4500 connection requests. The feedback she is getting is that this show is a unique and valuable way for Nurses around the world to communicate to one another, for others to understand the depth and breadth of what nurses actually do, and to recruit new & returning nurses to join the respected rank of "Nurse" to passionately care for human beings.
