Heart Place Hospital with Jacqui O’Connor

Do you believe we should first heal our healers before they do any healing? That’s definitely what HeartPlace Hospital founder Nurse Jacqui O’Connor believes! She’s leading a movement of hospicing and feminizing our health and education system.

There is a need for us to start caring for our carers. Nurse Jacqui is taking the massive opportunity to heal frontliners and work on providing them regular energy support. Her work continually challenges the norms and takes giant steps to improve how we do things as nurses.

In this episode, we learn more about Nurse Jacqui’s journey and her ideas on having safe havens, giving future carers space to be creative, and ultimately reclaiming our wisdom so we can advocate for a life that best suits us.

If you have witnessed the rampant victim mentality within the nursing industry and are searching for a hopeful safe haven led by someone with the right experience, then this episode is perfect for you!
