Nursing Careers On your Terms with Beth Montano

It’s astonishing how many nurses feel anxious about the very thought of not working bedside. Some have assumed nursing as a singular defining identity that limits them from seeing all other opportunities in this industry.

In this episode, I join the inspiring Beth Montano in The Autonomic Mind podcast to discuss our experiences in nursing outside the tradition clinical career paths!

We explore the importance of raising self-awareness and discovering your identity as more than just being a nurse. I share my story of embarking on non-clinical roles and finding extraordinary opportunities that surprisingly brought more earnings which is opposite to what most people assume.

So if you’re a nurse who feels there’s more to life outside working bedside, this episode is definitely for you! Enjoy!
