000: Welcome To The Happy Nurse Podcast
In this very first episode of The Happy Nurse, I share why I started this podcast and the journey that brought me to this place. Nurses are the backbone of the health system, always there to care for a stranger as if they were one of their own. Forsaking special moments with their own families to ensure that other families loved ones are being cared for. Compassion fatigue, stress, and burnout are on the rise in healthcare workers. Self care has never been so important. With over 20 years of clinical nursing experience as well as being trained in Mindfulness, Meditation, Hypnotherapy, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, I’m passionate about promoting effective self care strategies to my Nursing colleagues.
