On our next episode of Amplify Nursing we talk with Chinelo Ofoma . Chinelo is a pediatric nurse practitioner and advocate for nurses. Chinelo was born and raised in Nigeria, where she recalls that it was no one’s dream for their child to be a nurse. As Chinelo described, nursing was not considered a respected profession, and in turn, nursing was never a calling for her. But, it was ultimately Chinelo’s love of taking care of others, and the vast versatility a nursing degree provides, which lead her to the profession.
Today, using her platform Nurse on Purpose, she strives for the voices of nurses to be heard in the media, in publications, in healthcare and at large, challenging all of the stereotypes of nursing along the way.
