As you’ve probably heard by now, the World Health Organization has designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. As we continue our focus on leaders who are also nurses, in our 100th episode, I speak with Shawna Butler, RN, MBA.
Shawna is a nurse economist and tech enthusiast. She is a leading advocate for the role of nurses in driving the development and use of technology across the healthcare sector. She works with companies of all sizes, from startups to global corporations, and she’s coined the term ‘EntrepreNURSE’.
Shawna works with the pioneers who are integrating robotics, 3D printing, drones, AI, mixed reality, voice recognition, digital humans, big data and sensors into our health solutions and lifestyles. Her clinical experience includes emergency, cardiac, and critical care in both large university and small community hospitals, as well as international medical flight transport, and workplace health promotion services. She’s lived and worked around the world, and if you’re heading to Austin for SXSW, you’ll be able to meet her there. Shawna gives us some tips on how to make the most of a visit to that event.
One of the newest roles Shawna has on her resume is that of podcaster! That’s right, Shawna and her executive producer Rebecca McInroy have worked with the teams at American Nurses Association and Johnson and Johnson to create the See You Now Podcast. You can of course pick that up on all your favorite podcast catchers, as well as on the healthpodcastnetwork.com.
