Healthcare Provider Happy Hour: Creating a Healthy and Happy Career in Healthcare

In this week’s episode, I am joined by Keith Carlson, BSN, RN, NC-BC, a Board-Certified Nurse Coach and among the first cohort of nurses to hold that designation. He offers holistic career development and coaching for nurses and healthcare professionals. We discuss how he got into nursing, how we can step out of our comfort zones, increase self awareness and create happy & healthy careers in healthcare. 

Keith is the host of The Nurse Keith Show, his podcast is focused on career advice, fascinating interviews, and personal and professional inspiration for nurses. From 2012 until its sunset in 2017, Keith co-hosted RNFMRadio, a groundbreaking nursing podcast. In 2005, Keith launched Digital Doorway, one of the very first nursing blogs on the internet. 

A widely published nurse writer, Keith is the author of Savvy Networking For Nurses: Getting Connected and Staying Connected in the 21st Century and Aspire to be Inspired: Creating a Nursing Career That Matters. He has contributed chapters to a number of books related to the nursing profession and has written for,, MultiBriefs News Service, LPNtoBSNOnline, StaffGarden, AusMed, American Sentinel University,, Diabetes Lifestyle, the ANA blog,, American Nurse Today, Working Nurse Magazine, and other online and print publications.

Living in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, Keith shares a magical life with his partner, Shada McKenzie, a gifted and highly skilled traditional astrologer and reader of the tarot. They regularly cavort with their remarkably adorable animal companions, George, Buck, and Lorca. You can find George the Cat on Instagram using the hashtag #georgethecatsantafe
