Battling Burnout with Nurse Coaching: Stories from the ICU

I recently partnered with fellow AHNCC board certified Nurse Coach and Nurse Leader Denise Ervin from Infinite Wellbeings to write an article about how the relationships and knowledge we created and learned from Nurse Coaching helped heal us from burnout.

We have the power to heal.

We had such fun when we connected to write, and what we realized, even more deeply, is that all of us have the power to heal from any ailment. The tools of Nurse Coaching helped us do it, so, now, we can help you.

Let Go

Let Go

Keeping secrets & living with fear & shame allows us to build upon the ugliness of our own internal stories, making them difficult to overcome.  When you Let Go, you begin to open yourself up to the possibility of healing, allowing yourself to learn from mistakes, & then, in time, you will  begin to flourish, as you honor your past.
