On episode 451 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Erica Dorn, APRN, a nurse practitioner, entrepreneur, and owner of The NP Charting School. Ms. Dorn teaches charting and time management hacks to help NPs avoid burnout and experience greater job satisfaction.
In the course of their conversation, Keith and Erica discuss how the 15-minute visit and the demands of charting cause a lack of work-life balance and nurse practitioner burnout. Many APRNs stay late at work or bring charts home to catch up on documentation, and using smart phrases, practicing problem-focused chart notes, and other hacks can significantly reduce the charting burden.
Erica D the NP is a family nurse practitioner and nurse practitioner charting coach. After overcoming burnout herself, Erica created The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner to help overwhelmed NPs create a better work-life balance and overcome burnout. Through this work, Erica realized that charting was the #1 cause of nurse practitioner burnout. So Erica created The Nurse Practitioner Charting School to be the one stop for all documentation resources created specifically for nurse practitioners. She now helps nurse practitioners improve their charting so they can STOP charting at home, create a better work-life balance, and overcome burnout.
