In this episode, I interview Nic who is a nurse and an entrepreneur. Nic runs her own business helping nurses who are new to a management role by offering training and support and is a passionate advocate in helping nurses to transition from a clinical to a leadership role.
Nic talks about her journey into nursing which was heavily influenced by her Dad dying when she was 13 and an acknowledgement that she didn't know what she was signing up for and how she went through a catharsis about what nursing was and what nursing is.
This is a fun interview with Nic and fun and humour was central to a lot of what we talked about.
If you are a nurse manager then this episode is for you and is jam-packed with takeaways!
Nic also shares candidly some of her struggles in her transition from a clinically proficient theatre nurse to a nurse manager in a leadership role. We talk about imposter syndrome and feeling a fraud and the elastic band of guilt that pulls nurse managers back to the floor. We also talk about the Xfactor of leadership that makes nurses want to stay in their job. We talk about Conflict but through a positive lens, tribal camaraderie, toxic positivity, mentorship and so much more.
