Amplify Nursing podcast

We showcase the powerful work nurses do each day. Join us in conversations with nurses leading the way in nursing science, policy and innovation. 

Our Amplify Nursing guests defy stereotypes, define practice, and disrupt convention. We highlight the breadth and depth of nursing influence on society by amplifying nurses who are pushing boundaries and breaking down barriers to build a new paradigm.

Amplify Nursing is a Penn Nursing podcast supported by the Pinola Fund for Innovation in Nursing. Hosted by Marion Leary and Dr. Angelarosa DiDonato.
