7 Nursing YouTube Channels You Don't Want To Miss 

 1. Registered Nurse RN

This nursing YouTube channel focuses entirely on creating informative videos. With topics that include tips for getting through nursing school, passing the NCLEX exam, nursing career advice and how-to videos that cover a variety of useful nursing skills, Registered Nurse RN is an excellent resource for students and nurses, at any level, who are looking to brush up on their techniques or simply need some professional guidance.

2. EmpoweRN

Caroline, the founder of EmpoweRN, delivers her educational videos in an engaging and dynamic way. Taking inspiration from watching meteorologists break down the weather, videos are visually focused and tackle complex medical systems, finding ways to simplify them and make them easier to understand. She also has many uploads that offer tips for managing stress, personal care, building confidence and sharing stories about her nursing experiences.

3. Nurse Blake

This channel focuses on poking lighthearted fun at all the quirky traits nurses seem to share. Some of his titles include When Nurses Try to Flirt, Types of Nurses and The Scrub Romper -Hottest Fashion for Nurses. Blake's charismatic delivery and self-deprecating humor make this channel an excellent go-to for nurses who need a quick break from the serious nature of their jobs.

4. Simple Nursing

The Simple Nursing YouTube channel was created as a marketing tool to advertise the paid courses offered on the main website. For this reason, the videos offered are generally short and avoid complex procedures or topics. Despite that, there is a ton of solid information offered, such as tips for clinicals, exams, procedures and managing the work-life balance as a nurse. Nurse Mike is the face of Simple Nursing videos, but a few titles feature Nurse Blake.

5. Sean Dent

Sean Dent's YouTube channel is one of those hidden gems that hasn't been discovered by the masses. He covers a range of important nursing topics, such as navigating coworker relationships, how to stay positive and how to handle patients who are dying, but also shares many of his own experiences. Sean keeps his tone casual, and it gives him a relatability that's rarely found on professional YouTube channels. This channel sets itself apart by being one of the few that offers insight on many of the tougher aspects of nursing.

6. Nurse Mendoza

Nurse Mendoza offers a little bit of everything on his channel. His goal is to aid other nurses and nursing students by sharing his stories and insights stemming from his work in telemetry, med/surg, recovery and critical care. Many of his videos focus on his own experiences, but there are others that review nursing tools and offer ideas for self-care and tips on a variety of nursing skills and career struggles. His videos are engaging and offer practical advice that viewers can easily follow.

7. Nurse Bass

This is another informative nursing YouTube channel that aims to provide help to students and nurses. Nurse Bass shares personal experiences in some of his videos and doesn't shy away from describing his failures so other nurses know they aren't alone in their mistakes. One element that sets this channel apart is the motivational emphasis in much of the content. Nurse Bass pushes each viewer to believe in themselves and rise up to their full potential. For students and nurses who are just starting out, this can have a huge impact on professional drive and help reframe negative experiences into opportunities for personal growth.

YouTube has become an excellent source for practical information and guidance on almost any topic, and nursing is no exception. If you're searching for nursing YouTube channels that will help you improve your skills, build your confidence and offer sound personal and career advice, the channels listed above each offer something unique while all working to achieve the same goal: improving your abilities and increasing personal and professional satisfaction.
