Nurses, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare providers are people first. And we sometimes come with the same stories that we see in our patients. Some of them are great, and others... not so much.
As healthcare providers, as business owners, we, for the most part, know we are more effective when we are at our best. Unfortunately, the stressors of life as well as the immense stress that is put on us all can create unhealthy behaviors.
Choosing Wellness is about overcoming some of those behaviors. It's about taking back our power.
To me, choosing wellness is not only about being healthier, happier and wiser, but it's also about being a more effective clinician and a more successful business owner.
I was honored to speak once again with Eileen O'Grady about this very important book containing her personal narrative that can impact every one of us, as well as how we interact with our patients.
