Battling Burnout with Nurse Coaching (New Article 2019)

Checkout the article by Integrative Nurse Coach Certificate Program grads, Nicole Vienneau and Denise Ervin, published in AHNA’s June 2019 Beginnings magazine!

As a nurse, do you wonder, “Why am I here? This isn’t what I expected.” Do you think, “I am a nurse because I want to help; I love connecting with people, listening and being part of their healing; so why do I feel disconnected to my deepest desires?” You are not alone. We felt it too; an uncomfortable and isolating feeling. A mismatch between intentions and the chaotic environments preventing us from living the nursing life we love. There is hope in healing. We found it, and so can you.

This is the story of how we – two burned-out critical care nurses living miles apart in different states – connected to share a similar healing journey to become nurse coaches. By embodying self-compassion and the framework of nurse coaching, we became reunited with our passion for nursing and ourselves as whole and unique nurses and human beings.
