040: The Key to Self-Care With Beth Browning

Nurses are the backbone of the health system, always there to care for a stranger as if they were one of their own. 

We are so used to helping other people that sometimes we forget to help ourselves. 

In this episode, we are joined by Beth Browning, a student in her final year of nursing school. Being the first student guesting on the show, Beth shares her perspectives around her self-care strategies as she starts her career. 

In Beth’s journey towards becoming a nurse, she also experienced being on the other side as the patient. At 19 years old, Beth suffered from a stroke. This experience was grounding for her as she was able to see things from a different perspective. 

Join us in this episode as Beth shares the lessons she learned from her experience and the key to self-care.
