    Ebola and Nursing Students

    in Health

    Nursing students must enter healthcare facilities to meet the clinical component of nursing education. With the recent diagnosis of clients with Ebola on US soil and the CDC's changing guidelines, nursing educators are engaged in conversations on how this affects students. What are the students saying? With all the information that has been reported and debated in the media, there is no doubt that students may have concerns on how this affect them. Does anyone expect that a nursing student would be asked to care for someone diagnosed with Ebola? Do we have to re-think our approach to education on infection control? Let's have a conversation about that.

    Students, Sex, and Teachers

    in School

    What makes a teacher prey on one of their students? And what, if any, lasting impact does it have on the child? Psychiatrist, Michelle Skeen discusses this serious issue with Joe today.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 


    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
