312: Nurse Burnout with Diana Page
Nurses suffer from burnout too. I know that I speak mostly to doctor burnout but the field of healthcare as a whole drives burnout. Listen as I chat with Diana Page, an NP working in neuro, about her journey and what she’s doing to help nurses beat burnout.
It took Diana years to realize she was burned out. She spent four years at a job, completely miserable, and couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Once the light bulb clicked on, she started making huge changes and hasn’t looked back.
We both agree that it took significantly longer to realize that we were burned out because of the toxic mentality that permeates our clinics and hospitals. Everyone is pushing themselves to the brink so no one realizes just how deep in the hole they are.
Diana is a bright light shining into the deep dark pit that is burnout. She has an amazing story and I’m so happy that she is sharing it.
Do you agree with us that burnout is inherent in the culture and practice of medicine, no matter what part you play in the field?
“If everyone around you is burned out and no one’s talking about it, then you’re like, I guess this is just what we do.” Diana Page
