Why I created Lifelong Nursing

"I'm Brent, and I've created this website is primarily for teaching the student nurse, current nurse, and all of those interested in the nursing or medical field in general. I am an Adult/Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner dedicated to lifelong learning and lifelong nursing through teaching others what it means to be a nurse. Through educational videos, test prep questions, podcast, and general information videos, I hope to inspire others to become a nurse or to improve their knowledge of nursing and medicine. In my years of being a nurse, I have seen the best and worst of nursing, and I hope to be a positive guidance and influence of the nursing/healthcare community.

To infinity and beyond…

In the future, I plan to push Lifelong Nursing and its message to the most number of people I can. I would also like to began a charity, eventually, to help those who cannot afford healthcare, monetarily or through free access to healthcare. I’d also like to continue teaching in a more formal setting, and work on research to further our knowledge to help make this world a better place for all.
