Two nurses, one vision. After 13 years of collective nursing experience, Bachelors & Masters prepared nurses, Tori + Sam decided to create the "New Nurse 101" E-Book, an idea turned book based on the premise of growing professional nurses.


"We saw a need for more education and support for those going into nursing school and new nurses starting their first career."


We hope to offer you direction and guidance with these additional resources and be the nursing support you need.
