Nursing through a unique lens, utilising nursing and lived experience to positively enhance patient outcomes with RN Nichola Browning
Liam chats with Nichola Browning who has an impressive & extensive nursing career spanning many specialities & disciplines, we hear her baptism of fire in the UK as Nichola speaks to the impact the mentorship of key senior nurses had on her burgeoning career to progress, grow & lead. We also hear her unpack the vitally important part debriefing & reflection have on processing emotionally challenging times to avoid burnout as Liam asks Nichola about her time in MDT practice within an ICU.
Nichola shares a personal story of her time as a project manager in organ transplant that perfectly demonstrates the fact that, as nurses, when we are not at the bedside we often don’t feel like we have the skills to offer new roles, however transferable skills really are evident when you look.
This episode also tackles Imposter Syndrome, transition shock & psychological safety among peers and leadership within units, cultivating the qualities of being curious to grow.
Lastly Nicola tells us her lived experience on the other-side of the healthcare system when she recounts the moments her daughter suffered a stoke and how moving through that time has opened up opportunities to be a voice of change for young people in the same position.
