So glad I downloaded this podcast...as a RN that attended a three year hospital based nursing school, Mike Rose, just re-emphasized that my education was so well rounded. We had classroom based training but we were on the floor with patients almost everyday. After 20 years of nursing, I returned to college and received a business degree. It is still my healthcare training and experience though that provides me more success in business than the book learning I received. I learned to prioritize, how to handle "crisis" and how to read people. I know people that are farmers that could teach life biology, people that are construction workers that understand the engineering required to make a structure that will withstand hurricanes. And yes, my hairdresser knows my hair is super fine and needs special care to cut. The waiter at my favorite watering hole that knows I switch from alcohol to club soda after two drinks. I would like to give them the title of VP of care.
