MomNurse Academy Review

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my review of the MomNurse Academy and a discount code. As always I want to be transparent anytime I do a review. I was gifted this course in exchange for my feedback. I am not receiving any commission for this review or for sales of this product.

The MomNurse Academy was created by Dani Stringer. She has been a pediatric nurse practitioner for almost 10 years. Dani earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Arizona State University in 2009 followed by her master’s degree in nursing in 2010. She graduated as the youngest nurse practitioner in the country, which led to her college nickname KidNurse. You can find her amazing resources on pediatric health by visiting her blog KidNurse.org.

Fun fact: She was the very first provider who examined our son at our pediatric doctors office when he was just days old. She was warm, friendly, and made both Josh and I feel confident as new parents in our ability to take care of our son.

MomNurse Academy

The MomNurse Academy was designed to give moms confidence when they are taking care of sick children at home. After completing all the modules I can tell you that this course meets that goal.

With everything that is happening in the world right now with COVID-19 we are limiting our family’s exposure to others. Like many families we are only taking our children to the doctor if they absolutely need to be seen. After this course I have so much more confidence in my ability to determine if my children need to be seen by their health provider and also the best ways to offer supportive home care the next time they are sick.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started watching the videos but I can tell you I was blown away by what Dani has created. Wow. Really just wow. The website design is easy to navigate, it is aesthetically pleasing, and the video quality is top notch. The lessons in each module are engaging and full of great information to help moms navigate the best way to take care of their sick child.

As a mom of 4 kids I wasn’t sure how much of this course would be helpful for me. My oldest is almost eight years old and I felt like I had a good grasp on what warranted a phone call or a trip to the doctors office. But after taking the first module on fevers I realized just how much information I didn’t know.

What topics are covered and how long is each module?

Did you know that some reports have found that at least 20% of pediatric ER visits are because of fevers? Crazy, right? In the fever module Dani will teach you: the definition of fever, ranges of normal temperatures, what happens to your child’s body when they get a fever, how to properly take your child’s fever, when to give medicine, when to seek medical care, supportive at home care for fevers, and much more.

Fever is the first module covered in this course. The modules are meant to build off of each other so you have a baseline of knowledge before proceeding to the next. Here are all seven topics in order covered in this course.

  • Fever
  • Cold
  • Ear Infection
  • Sinus Infection
  • Eyes
  • Respiratory Distress
  • Dehydration

My favorites were fever, ear infection, sinus infection, and eyes. I learned new things in every module but these really stood out to me. I love learning about how the body works and found these modules fascinating. The anatomy images and charts combined with Dani’s engaging personality make these lessons fun and educational.

I have a much better understanding on what is going on in my child’s body when they get sick. In addition to the lectures by Dani, there are real life pictures and examples of what pediatric illnesses look like – so you know just what to look for.  While sad, it was extremely helpful and I am so glad this was included in the course.

The longest modules took me about 45 minutes to complete. The video lessons are broken down into short segments which make it easy to pause when needed and restart later. Each module begins and ends with a short quiz to help you see what you know and what you have learned.

You can become a MomNurse too!

This course would have never been something I purchased for our family. I am always hesitant to buy online courses because so much of the time they fail to offer the value I was expecting. Having now had the opportunity to explore and finish the MomNurse Academy I can tell you that is 100% worth the investment.

When you purchase this course you have the option to join the MomNurse Academy group on Facebook. This group is only open to those who have enrolled. Think of it as your own support group for any and all medical questions regarding your child. Dani posts words of encouragement often and you have the ability to connect with her and the other members in the group.

Dani has generously offered to give readers of this blog $100 off her MomNurse Academy. Click HERE to purchase and use discount code: workoutmama to save $100 and build your confidence when caring for your sick child at home.

When you purchase the MomNurse Academy you get 4+ hours of video courses with Dani, 48 evidence-based pediatric health lessons, a MomNurse tool kit that includes ebooks & interactive tools, plus access to the Facebook group.

Times are hard right now for many reasons. I would never recommend something to purchase unless I believed it would be beneficial and helpful to others. I truly believe the MomNurse Academy meets those qualifications and is a great resource.

As a mom of 4 kids under the age of seven I can tell you this course was super helpful for me. I feel more confident and empowered when it comes to taking care of my children the next time they get sick. This would also make an excellent baby shower gift for a new mama.

The MomNurse Academy isn’t meant to replace your pediatric provider. But it will train you to watch for important symptoms, treat at-home when you can, and think like a MomNurse with sound pediatric education at your service.

Legs On Fire Workout

Happy Friday. It is a happy day in the Buschel house because it is grocery shopping day. We have been trying to stretch out how often we go to the store and we made it 10 days. I think that might be a record in our house.

Poor Josh, he is the one shopping today and my list is so long. We are also picking things up for family members so that adds to the list but honestly most of the items he is buying are for us. Our kids are so excited for more apples and oranges. It seriously the simple things in life right now like fresh produce that are bringing smiles to our faces.

Cardio/Strength Interval Workout

This cardio/strength interval circuit workout uses a structure of 50 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. There are five exercises in the circuit. You’ll go through the circuit 5 times total. At the end of each completed circuit rest for a full 60 seconds.

If you are unsure what a Lunge & Kick looks like click HERE.

YouTube Follow Along Version

You can also follow along with me on YouTube. I filmed a slight variation on this workout last night. And oh my goodness I was such a sweaty mess.

I used to worry so much about having to make sure everything was perfect until I shared it on my blog. Right now I am just so grateful for this outlet that allows me to be creative and focus my attention on something else other than the news when the kids go to bed and Josh is on shift.

Have fun and happy sweating!

Arms, Back, & Abs Workout

Here is the upper body workout I did this morning…

I repeated this 2 times. It is an effective but short workout that packs a punch. The pike pushups get me every time.

After I finished I walked a 1/2 mile around my backyard before the kids woke up. I am trying to move as much as possible during the day. I have worn a path in our grass from all the walking.

When I was walking I listened to my bible readings for the day. I am currently using The Gospel Coalitions Read The Bible in a year plan. The sun was starting to get higher in the sky as Psalm 24 was being read.

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,
    the world and those who dwell therein,
for he has founded it upon the seas
    and established it upon the rivers.

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
    And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not lift up his soul to what is false
    and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the Lord
    and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek the face of the God of Jacob

Psalm 24

I felt so much peace after listening to this. I love how each year when I read the bible a passage will stick out to me like it never has before. Seeking God is often a daily struggle for me. I wish that weren’t the case but that is the truth. It is super easy for me to find things to fill my time with but I have the learned that the best way for me to spend my time to is to read God’s word. I may not understand everything I read but I do have more peace because I filled myself up with encouragement and grounded myself in a wisdom that comes from the maker of heaven and earth.

This workout is part of the Free 1 Month Plan that I put together.
