Comparison as a nurse – My thoughts

In the age of social media, it's easy to fall into the trap of comparison. We see our colleagues posting about their love for nursing, their energy, and their positive experiences, and we can't help but wonder, "What's wrong with me?”In this episode, we’ll address the issue of comparison in nursing careers. With the prevalence of energetic and positive nurses online, it can lead to feelings of inadequacy and questioning one's nursing career. However, it is okay to not feel the same level of happiness and fulfillment as others in the profession and we should accept our reality and stop comparing ourselves to others. By creating space for self-reflection and engaging in activities that bring joy, nurses can begin to move towards a more fulfilling nursing career.Key takeaways:0:00:17 Feeling disconnected and comparing oneself to others0:01:19 It's okay to not feel the same way about nursing0:02:37 Accepting that everyone's reality is different0:04:16 Nursing is not always rainbows and sunshine0:05:44 Nervous system dysregulation and burnout0:06:14 Stop comparing and acknowledge where you're atWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?

Confidence vs Self Confidence

Confidence vs. Self ConfidenceIn this episode, I dig into confidence vs. self-confidence, a common issue among us nurses, is believing we are not confident enough to do something. I started by separating confidence and self-confidence into external and internal factors, where confidence is seen as an external validation and self-confidence comes from within.Three main factors contribute to self-confidence: trusting yourself at all times, being open to experiencing any emotion, and your thoughts about yourself.There is also a misconception that confidence comes from being competent in something, and it clarifies that confidence comes from repetition, but self-confidence comes from within.Self-confidence is not arrogance but rather trust in oneself, willingness to experience both positive and negative emotions, and managing thoughts about oneself.This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to build their self-confidence. I provide insightful and practical tips on cultivating self-confidence, which is essential for success in any career or aspect of life.Key takeaways:03:28 - Confidence and self-confidence a common issues among people.04:48 - External and internal factors.06:54 - Three main factors of self-confidence08:10 - Self-confidence is not arrogance09:43 - Overcoming misconceptions15:53 - The importance of self-confidence18:53 - Self-confidence is your ticket to your dream jobThanks for listening!Loved the episode?

Bad Nursing Advice

As nurses, we often seek advice from our peers, family, and friends when it comes to our careers. However, not all advice is created equal, and following bad advice can have detrimental effects on our mental, emotional, and professional well-being.In this episode, we will talk about the 5 Bad Nursing Advice that nurses must take into consideration. One of them is that switching jobs isn't a negative aspect, but a chance for nurses to explore and discover what truly fits their aspirations.

Who not how – achieving your 2024 goals!

In this episode, I explore the concept of "who not how" and how it can help nurses achieve their goals. Instead of focusing on how to achieve a goal, it is more effective to find the right person or resource to help you reach that goal. I’m sharing my examples and stories to illustrate the power of finding the right "who" and leveraging their expertise.This concept is inspired by the book "Who Not How?" by Dr. Benjamin Hardy and Dan Sullivan. The book's central idea is finding the right individuals to help you reach your goals. Once you find the right "who" – a mentor, coach, or colleague – they can guide you, provide accountability, and help you uncover the "how".Focusing less on the "how" and more on the "who" can be a game-changer in achieving goals, especially for nurses. It helps us leverage collective expertise, regulate our mindset, and accelerate our progress. So, as you set your sights on your goals for 2024, consider looking for your "who" to help uncover the "how".Key takeaways:03:30 The Book "Who Not How" by Dr. Benjamin Hardy and Dan Sullivan04:38 Using the "Who Not How" Mindset in a Leadership Role08:26 Impact of Disconnection in the Nursing Community10:49 Achieving Goals through Neuroplasticity and Accountability12:07 The Importance of Finding the Right Support in Nursing14:46 Leveraging Collective Expertise to Achieve Nursing Goals22:47 Holding Yourself Accountable and Having a Future-Focused Vision in Nursing24:22 Success Story of Helping a Nurse Transition to a Work-From-Home Position26:00 Leveraging Someone's Expertise to Save Time and Achieve Goals28:56 Personal Example of Leveraging Someone's Expertise to Save Time29:57 Importance of Finding the Right "Who" in Nursing Careers and LeadershipWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?

I shared inspiring stories of how nursepreneurs are transforming their careers, working with celebrities, and creating opportunities that allow them to prioritize their passion while earning a significant income.One of the standout benefits of having a side hustle as a nursepreneur is the freedom it offers. My personal experience of working from various locations around the world emphasizes the flexibility of setting my own schedule. Whether it's walking away from the monotonous routine of a traditional nursing job or working from anywhere at any time, nursepreneurs have the opportunity to design a lifestyle that aligns with their dreams and goals.

Normalising Transition Shock

In this episode, I explore 'transition shock' and strategies to conquer it, addressing the challenges of transitioning to new roles or careers. Facing the fear of starting over can hinder progress. To thrive amidst these changes, I emphasized the importance of embracing change and nurturing resilience.Transition shock encompasses a spectrum of emotions experienced during significant life or career shifts—excitement, confidence, self-doubt, and anxiety. Normalizing this experience is crucial. Feeling underconfident during new challenges is a typical phase, not a reflection of personal shortcomings. Transitioning requires patience, practice, and time.Navigating transition shock involves a mindset shift. It's about embracing the emotional whirlwind, reframing negative thoughts, and building confidence and competence. Remember, transition shock is a natural part of the process. Embracing change with resilience and trust in my abilities is key to fostering a fulfilling nursing career filled with growth.Key takeaways:00:54 Understanding Transition Shock in Nursing01:04 The Fear of Being a Beginner Again01:39 The Journey of Our Graduates02:37 Navigating Nervousness and Self-Doubt06:38 Reframing Thoughts for a Positive Transition10:55 The Dunning Kruger Effect and Transition Shock15:22 Building Resilience and Navigating Change16:45 Conclusion: Normalizing Transition and Embracing the JourneyWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?

Release the How

In this episode, I emphasized the value of embracing flexible career paths rather than fixating on meticulously laid out plans. I delve into the prevalent sentiment among healthcare professionals, including myself, of feeling the need to tightly control career outcomes, which often leads to unnecessary stress and worry. Drawing from my own experiences and insights gleaned from successful professionals, I highlight the nonlinear nature of success in nursing and the futility of trying to micromanage every aspect of our journey. Instead, I urge listeners to cultivate resilience and adaptability, empowering themselves to navigate discomfort and change while centering on an internal locus of control—managing our thoughts, emotions, and actions.Throughout the discussion, I underscore the significance of remaining open to diverse opportunities that align with our evolving personal and professional needs. I stress the importance of being receptive to change and varying pathways, recognizing that a rigid approach seldom aligns with the dynamic nature of our careers. I advocate for a mindset that embraces uncertainty and seeks growth through embracing diverse opportunities.The crucial role resilience plays in our pursuit of fulfilling careers and lives. It emphasizes that developing comfort in discomfort is pivotal, serving as a prerequisite for achieving our aspirations. By fostering resilience and a willingness to adapt, we can chart our course towards our dream careers while navigating the unpredictable nature of our professional journeys.Key takeaways:01:29 The Illusion of Control and the Importance of Flexibility03:01 The Power of Diverse Experiences: A Case Study04:55 The Pitfalls of Linear Thinking in Career Progression05:30 Embracing Change and the Grief Process07:27 The Role of Discomfort in Achieving Goals08:25 The Importance of Critical Thinking and Emotional Resilience09:18 Creating Your Own Path and Embracing Opportunities10:36 The Role of Emotions in Pursuing Your Goals13:56 The Power of Failure and Rejection in Personal Growth14:47 Conclusion: Discomfort as the Currency of Your DreamsWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?

Losing Clinical Skills

In our careers, we often feel hesitant to explore new paths, fearing a loss of hard-earned skills. However, skill evolution is a natural part of our journey. In this episode, I talked about how our brains adapt and learn and how we can confidently navigate career changes while building upon existing expertise.The common fear many have about losing their clinical skills when expanding their career in nursing or switching to a different industry. Noting the incredible adaptability of the human brain, I emphasized the power of neuroplasticity and the capacity to learn and apply new skills while retaining previously acquired expertise. Personal anecdotes are shared to affirm reassurance in career transitions, rejecting the notion of skill loss in favor of the concept of skill evolution. Skill evolution is integral to our career journey. Embrace the idea that skills continually evolve. Adopt an "I'll figure it out" mindset, shift perspectives, and confidently unlock your full potential amid career changes.Key takeaways:00:56 The Fear of Losing Clinical Skills03:20 Understanding Neuroplasticity04:43 Personal Experiences with Neuroplasticity10:01 The Power of 'I'll Figure It Out' Mindset15:12 Building Confidence in Our Nervous System18:48 The Importance of Self Confidence21:21 Real Life Example of Fight or Flight Response24:48 Conclusion: Skill Evolution, Not LossWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?

Are you a people pleaser?

As nurses, we often find ourselves going above and beyond to meet the needs of our patients and provide exceptional care. One behavioral pattern that is deeply ingrained in the nursing profession is people pleasing. We strive to make others happy, gain their approval, and avoid conflict. But have you ever stopped to reflect on the true essence of people-pleasing? In this episode, I dive deep into the intricacies of people pleasing in nursing and explore its pros and cons. Join me on this journey of self-reflection and boundary-setting as I unravel the power of people-pleasing in our profession.By embracing self-regulation and setting healthy boundaries, we can navigate the world of people-pleasing with intention and cultivate a nursing career that encompasses both exceptional care and personal fulfillment.

Under-earning as a Nurse

In today's episode, my focus is on a major issue affecting our earning potential: underselling ourselves. Despite our skills and accomplishments, many nurses struggle to express their true value due to fear of coming off as overconfident. It's crucial to distinguish between self-assuredness and arrogance while recognizing and communicating your expertise, achievements, and experience for professional growth.This habit of underselling creates a self-fulfilling prophecy, hindering our opportunities in nursing careers by dwelling on our perceived inadequacies. To combat this, we need to deeply explore our career narratives, understand our worth, and reshape our perceptions of our capabilities.The roots of this underselling behavior lie in deep-seated beliefs and past experiences. Not addressing these can stall professional growth and earning potential. Although not an easy fix, investing in recognizing your worth brings real changes in your career trajectory. By ending the underselling cycle and actively pursuing opportunities that match your value, you can unlock the income and opportunities you truly deserve. Let's remember that nurses' worth merits acknowledgment, paving the way for opportunities that reflect our actual value. Key takeaways:02:30 - Underselling Leads to Underearning04:55 - Self-Reflection and Overcoming Underselling15:58 - The Impact of Trauma on Nursing Careers19:17 - Shifting Mindsets for Career Advancement20:06 - Seeking Opportunities and Embracing Abundance21:20 - Recognizing Worth and Pursuing MoreWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?

Nursing Career Passport 

In this thought-provoking podcast, I challenge the notion that nursing success is solely determined by years of experience. I talked about the importance of valuing diverse experiences that shape a nurse's career, and I urge everyone to embrace a broader perspective.  With a passion for debunking ingrained beliefs and encouraging intentional thinking, I explored the idea that everyone's path is unique and predetermined. Rather than engaging in divisive conversations pitting young nurses against their more experienced counterparts, I advocate for acknowledging and valuing the diverse range of experiences that shape a nurse's career. Through the concept of the "Nursing Career Passport," I encourage you to reflect on your own journeys and value every aspect of your professional and personal growth.

Prevention VS Cure – Grad Success Series 

In today's episode, I discussed the importance of prevention being better than cure when it comes to job hunting as a graduate nurse. Graduates who seek help and explore their options ahead of time have a better chance of succeeding in landing a job compared to those who leave everything to the last minute. From my experience, it is harder to bounce back from not succeeding in job applications, and it can negatively affect your confidence and self concept before you even start your career. Investing in oneself and seeking help can lead to success in job hunting as a graduate nurse. Key takeaways: 1:11 - Importance of exploring options early for a successful nursing career 01:42 - Comparison between early applicants and those who leave things to the last minute 02:51 - Challenges faced by those who apply alone and fail to succeed 04:56 - Applying for 2023 applications 7:47 - Importance of taking preventive measures for a successful nursing career Want to land your graduate nursing role with ease?

Basic vs Advanced Nursing 

In this episode, I discussed a topic that might seem controversial at first: being basic. I delve into the importance of getting back to the basics of nursing and how it can actually make you an advanced practitioner. Through personal stories and insights, I shared how poor execution of basics can impact both patients and healthcare professionals.  This topic is especially close to my heart as I reflect on the recent passing of my uncle and the conversations we had about nursing.

Self Doubt as a Graduate Nurse – Grad Success Series

Self Doubt as a Graduate Nurse - Grad Success Series Self-doubt is a self-created emotion.  Self-doubt comes from our thoughts about ourselves, which we have practiced believing more than we have practiced positive affirmations about ourselves. External factors such as grades, job rejections, or negative feedback from others do not create self-doubt for us, as they are outside of our control.  Our thoughts generate our feelings, and the self-doubt we feel stems from our negative thoughts about ourselves. We have power over ourselves and our thoughts, and I encourage you to practice positive affirmations to combat self-doubt.  Remember, others cannot create how we feel, and it is up to us to take charge of our thoughts and emotions. Key takeaways: 00:54 What is self-doubt? 02:40 We have power over ourselves and our thoughts. 03:46 Our thoughts generate our feelings, including self-doubt. 07:07 External factors do not create self-doubt 09:36 Conclusion and the importance of understanding the role of our thoughts in generating self-doubt.

Nursing from Your Future Self

Nursing from Your Future Self  Today, we explore the topic of self-love and how it can be particularly challenging for nurses who may have negative thoughts about their current nursing career and life situation. I talked about the importance of acknowledging that there was a version of oneself in the past who was excited about where you are now. By focusing on this positive perspective, you can begin to love and appreciate yourself more in the present. Self-love and compassion is an essential component of overall well-being, and it can be particularly crucial for those working in high-stress professions like nursing. The pressure to provide compassionate care to patients while also managing personal and professional responsibilities can take a toll on a nurse's mental and emotional health. This episode provides an inspiring and insightful perspective on the importance of self-love in nursing and beyond. By recognizing and embracing the positive aspects of our current situation, we can cultivate greater self-love, acceptance, and contentment in our lives.

Confidence vs Self Confidence

Confidence vs. Self Confidence In this episode, I dig into confidence vs. self-confidence, a common issue among us nurses, is believing we are not confident enough to do something. I started by separating confidence and self-confidence into external and internal factors, where confidence is seen as an external validation and self-confidence comes from within. Three main factors contribute to self-confidence: trusting yourself at all times, being open to experiencing any emotion, and your thoughts about yourself. There is also a misconception that confidence comes from being competent in something, and it clarifies that confidence comes from repetition, but self-confidence comes from within. Self-confidence is not arrogance but rather trust in oneself, willingness to experience both positive and negative emotions, and managing thoughts about oneself. This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to build their self-confidence. I provide insightful and practical tips on cultivating self-confidence, which is essential for success in any career or aspect of life. Key takeaways: 03:28 - Confidence and self-confidence a common issues among people. 04:48 - External and internal factors. 06:54 - Three main factors of self-confidence 08:10 - Self-confidence is not arrogance 09:43 - Overcoming misconceptions 15:53 - The importance of self-confidence 18:53 - Self-confidence is your ticket to your dream job Book a call with Liam to unlock the power of self-confidence and transform your nursing career.

Story Vs Fact – Nursing Your Mind

Considering the overwhelming nature of our career as nurses, it’s normal to have a mind full of competing stories and thoughts, sometimes, its really hard to see what is story and what is fact! If you are feeling like your brain has you running round in circles, good news your human! It just so happens that our primitive brains are wired to entertain these thoughts without them being factual truth! I believe we need to learn how to assess our thoughts and differentiate which ones are facts and which ones are simply stories we tell ourselves that we have practiced believing are true despite evidence to the contrary.

You Are Worthy

Most of us are guilty of not recognizing our own worth. It’s our human nature to think that a sense of worthiness is only possible when we have more things and accomplishments. However, I’m here to prove that you are worthy right here, right now.  In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I decided to record a random talk session about feeling worthy. Have you ever had the feeling of needing to outsource your worthiness for it to be valid? I had been in situations like this when I don’t feel worthy unless I acquire certain achievements under my name. In my nursing career, I realized that our worthiness is available regardless of the circumstances we’re in. We define our own worth, it’s never dependent on how other people see us. Give yourself the permission to immerse in worthiness no matter how the world makes you feel. Keep in mind that you will never achieve your goals from a place of emptiness. You need to empower yourself and make the decision to feel worthy. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Why do we outsource our worth? (00:55) The negative effects of setting conditions to worthiness (02:27) How does coaching help us realize worthiness? (04:15) The value of reminding yourself that you’re worthy (05:55) QUOTES:  "The only reason that you are not worthy in your mind is because of the thoughts you're choosing to think." -Liam Caswell (02:13) "The only person that can define your worth is you." -Liam Caswell (02:51) "I want to empower you to start seeing that you are 100% worthy right here, right now.

Building Wealth While Knowing Your Worth with Lauren Bell

There's no question that we all want to be wealthy. But how do you go about building wealth while knowing your worth? It can be tricky, but it's definitely not impossible.  In this week’s episode of High Performance Nursing, I have a fascinating conversation with Lauren Bell, a registered nurse who is also a consciousness coach, helping healthcare professionals in building wealth while knowing their self-worth. According to Lauren, one of the main things that get in the way of healthcare professionals achieving wealth is their own self-worth. She explains that a lot of healthcare professionals have been taught to be "givers" and not "takers." As a result, they often have a hard time asking for what they're worth or charging what they're worth. If you are a healthcare professional who wants to build wealth but doesn't know where to start, this episode is for you! You will learn how to shift your mindset around wealth and begin taking actionable steps towards building the life you want.

Bet On Yourself And Recognise Your Success

A lot of people tend to stop themselves from pursuing a big goal. We constantly hold back because of imposter syndrome and the fear of failure.  With podcasting, I’ve realised that failing can be a beautiful thing. It may be hard, but I’ve always been determined to push myself to experience the highs and the lows.  As we celebrate the 50th episode of the High Performance Nursing, I decided to record a solo episode to celebrate this milestone. A year ago, I never thought that I’d be able to publish this many episodes, but here we are. Through this episode, I encourage you to bet on yourself and recognise your success. You may have had small wins and think that they’re not substantial, but in these little triumphs we become more empowered and believe that we’re amazing beings capable of achieving whatever we want.  Remember that the only block stopping you from getting what you want is you, so step into your greatness, take massive messy strategic action and don’t be afraid to fail.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Why we need to stop, breathe, and reflect (01:05) The dangers of imposter syndrome (02:02) Bet on yourself and do whatever you want (03:25) Why failing is a beautiful thing (04:30) Liam’s goals for the HPN podcast (06:00) The importance of self-care (06:25) CONNECT WITH LIAM CASWELL Connect with me on Instagram PS. I have launched my signature "8 week Clinical Career Accelerator Program" to help clinicians (just like you) achieve their career goals, with confidence, clarity and mentorship from me!

Self Care For Clinicians with Diana Page

Are you feeling run down? Burned out? Stressed? It's time for some self-care! Clinicians are notorious for putting themselves last, but we need to take care of ourselves if we want to be effective in our work.  In this week’s episode of High-Performance Nursing, I have a fascinating conversation with Diana Page, a burnout survivor turned burnout educator, Nurse/NP mentor, Neurology NP, self-care strategist, and mom of two toddlers.

What does it take to become a midwife? A lot of hard work, dedication, and some natural talent.

The skills required for the job are vast and diverse.  Becoming a midwife is not an easy task. It takes years of hard work and dedication to master the skills required for the job.

6 Steps Framework To Get Career Clarity

If you're feeling lost in your career, or like you're just not quite sure what you want to do next, don't worry - you're not alone. Many people feel this way at some point in their lives. The good news is that there are things you can do to get clarity on what you want and where your career is headed.  In this episode, I am going to show you a 6-step framework to get career clarity and start moving forward again. You've probably had moments where you've asked yourself, "What am I doing with my life?"  It can be hard to figure out what we want to do and even harder to know how to get there. But without a clear idea of what we want to do with our lives, it's difficult to make progress towards our goals. One of the biggest reasons for this is that without career clarity, we can't set effective goals. We might have vague ideas about what we want, but without a specific target in mind, it's tough to know what steps we need to take to get there.  Without career clarity, it's also difficult to stay motivated; after all, if we don't know what we're working towards, it's hard to see the point in our efforts. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Step 1: Get Curious About Yourself (3:17) Step 2: Learn to Observe Your Thoughts (7:01) Step 3: Conduct a Career Assessment (10:50) Step 4: Network (12:55) Step 5: Sample and Experiment (14:53) Step 6: Build a Professional Career Brand (17:31) PS. I have launched my signature "8 week Clinical Career Accelerator Program" to help clinicians (just like you) achieve their career goals, with confidence, clarity and mentorship from me!

Gain Your Power Back with Nurul Norzahari

Nurses know that they have a passion for helping and taking care of others, but knowing this is never enough to get them through the difficult times. Even before the whole pandemic situation, one may see some nurses losing enthusiasm for their work. In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I chat with the fabulous Nurul Norzahari. She is a Registered Nurse, Personal Trainer, and the Founder of FitNurseCo. Her 10 years of combined work experience has been moving and motivating health professionals for the benefit of their well-being Nurul is here to talk about how nurses can gain their power back. To do this, she advises nurses to truly know themselves, assess their emotions, and write their goals. Nurul also showcased the importance for nurses to understand deeply their why.  Nurses should know how to take back power over their lives and don’t let a stressful work or person control them. As a result, their mind and body reach homeostasis and their personal and professional lives become more aligned. They become motivated to do well in their careers, and they greatly appreciate who they are outside work.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: What led Nurul to RN and PT work?

Creating Your Intentional Life with Beth Montano from Autonomic

In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I speak with the amazing Beth Montano. She is a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Medical Oncology and the CEO & Founder of Autonomic.  Beth has over 12 years of nursing experience and through Autonomic, she’s on a mission to help nurses to love their work. It’s no secret that working as a nursing professional or in most healthcare industries is extremely tiring and nurses experience burnout and constant stress. For nurses to love their work, it’s essential to go back to basics and reflect on what they want from nursing. It starts with what Beth coined as RCA - require, change, and accept. Nurses should assess what they require from their work, the changes they want to happen, and the things they have to accept. Some nurses also feel stuck because they’ve made their careers their entire identities. For Beth, being a nurse should only be a part of your identity and not the entirety of it. Beth also advises nurses to constantly seek both formal and informal support in times of stress. This not only helps their well-being but also has a positive influence on their work performance.  In times of crisis like this global pandemic where the demand for healthcare is high, nurses might question if they really love their work. However, with the right support and mindset, nurses can create an intentional life where they stay true to their passion and commitment to taking care of others and themselves. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Beth's career to date (01:25) Her life-changing experiences in India (02:50) A day in a life of Beth as a clinical nurse specialist (11:55) Beth's advice for nurses who are holding themselves back (14:50) The history of Autonomic (17:09) The changes Beth would implement in the nursing profession (23:03) Love Your Work (25:05) Beth's recommendations to nurses managing current stress (30:45) Rapid-fire questions with Beth Montano (32:49) CONNECT WITH BETH MONTANO Connect with Beth on Instagram and Facebook  Visit Beth’s website CONNECT WITH LIAM CASWELL Connect with me on Instagram PS. I have launched my signature "8 week Clinical Career Accelerator Program" to help clinicians (just like you) achieve their career goals, with confidence, clarity and mentorship from me!

4 Non-Typical Ways to Find Your Next Nursing Role

In this solo episode, I had a quick talk on the 4 key areas nursing professionals need to explore during a job search. Typically, nurses would only use one platform when it comes to seeking opportunities and I would often get asked where is the best place to look for jobs. What nursing professionals don’t realise is that there are lots of opportunities out there, they just have to create them. Nurses would usually use cold email outreach and look for jobs in ways they are familiar with  - going to local health district’s websites, Indeed, Glass door, and sending applications online. Other ways to send applications include using the connections you’ve made in previous work or even in undergraduate training, going after your dream nursing role, and partnering with healthcare recruiters. When you tap into these non-typical ways to find a nursing opportunity, there’s a huge possibility that you’ll come across off-market jobs which are not available if you simply just do an online search.  Broaden your job opportunity horizon by using out-of-the-box ways, and you might just end up getting the role you’ve always dreamt of.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Cold market outreach (01:12)  Warm market outreach (01:59) Ideal role outreach (03:33) Recruitment outreach (06:12) CONNECT WITH LIAM CASWELL Connect with me on Instagram PS. I have launched my signature "8 week Clinical Career Accelerator Program" to help clinicians (just like you) achieve their career goals, with confidence, clarity and mentorship from me!

Aesthetic's Nursing & Nursepreneurship In The UK with Charlotte Reynolds

In this episode, I had a fun and informative talk with Charlotte Reynolds, who has been a colleague back in the UK. She is an ICU nurse and a nurseprenuer at the same time with her very own aesthetics clinic. Charlotte had years of experience as an ICU nurse until she gave birth and realized that she needed to do something different. And that’s where the aesthetics clinic started.  At first, she was afraid of venturing into something she wasn’t really familiar with. She is afraid of what other people will think or if she can really make it until she learns to care less about others' opinions.  In this episode, Charlotte also shares what it was like to be an ICU nurse when the COVID-19 pandemic started. According to her, the hardest part was seeing other people suffer and not having a definite plan to handle the situation.  On the brighter side, she says they got the support they needed in such tough times. The hospital that she has been working at has helped her cope, especially on the emotional side, with everything going on around.  To sum it up, Charlotte, like any other nurse in the world, wants to do something different at some time too. Working in the hospital can be draining, and that's when nurses start to look for options. And there’s nothing wrong with it, actually. After all, nurses are still humans who need an outlet to destress and find another path at the same time. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Charlotte’s nursing journey (01:45) What is outreach nursing services in the UK look like (04:05) How Charlotte discovered a new path (09:07) What it's like to be a nurse during COVID (12:02) Charlotte’s experience as an ICU nurse (17:05) How Charlotte established her aesthetic business (22:15) What it was like to take the first payment in Charlotte’s business (24:50) Charlotte’s advice to those who are planning to start an aesthetics company (28:12) Charlotte’s definition of high-performance nursing (31:00) Charlotte's advice to health workers who are planning to do something different (36:35) What keeps Charlotte going (40:00) CONNECT WITH CHARLOTTE REYNOLDS Connect with Charlotte on Instagram and Facebook  Visit Charlotte’s http://www.charlottesaesthetics.com CONNECT WITH LIAM CASWELL Connect with me on Instagram PS. I have launched my signature "8 week Clinical Career Accelerator Program" to help clinicians (just like you) achieve their career goals, with confidence, clarity and mentorship from me!

Burnout No More For Healthcare Professionals with Athol Hann

In this episode, I have a fascinating conversation with Athol Hann. He’s a Clinical Emergency Nurse, Founder of AtholTech, and fwards app and known for his Burnout No More courses. Athol experienced first-hand what burnout feels like for healthcare professionals and started questioning if he can stay with his profession in the long run.  Surprisingly, he wasn’t aware that he was experiencing burnout until he had hateful feelings towards work. He went from someone who loves the nursing profession to someone who hated it.   All the little stress in the workplace piled up, and he knew that something needs to be done otherwise he might end up harming himself or others. He eventually developed a process that allowed him to better deal with burnout and this gave rise to the Burnout No More Courses. He encourages nurses to tune in with themselves, write journals and ask for colleagues’ help.  Nurses share the same stress and problems in the workplace, it’s a powerful strategy to learn how others are coping with burnout. They have to realize that they’re not alone and doing so helps boost their morale and guides them out of the burnout pit.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Athol's journey into his nursing profession (01:41) Advantages of going against the traditional nursing route (05:38) How he built the fwards app (08:08) Realizations that led to fwards development (13:59) Athol's biggest lessons from his tech venture (16:25) How did non-clinical training help Athol's clinical practice (20:50) How Athol handled his burnout phase (24:37) The Burnout No More Course (30:25) Rapid-fire questions with Athol Hann (32:18) Resources:  Beating Stress and Burnout - with Elaina Mullery and Lauren Bell From the bedside to the Boardroom, how uPaged founder Zara Lord is modernising on demand work in Australia!

2021 Reflection – What are you proud of?

Happy 2022 Beautiful people! In this first episode of the year, I want you to take a moment to reflect on what you achieved and were proud of last year. It was a beautiful experience to see how much we had all changed and grown. It might have been confronting for most of us, but it was so nice to just be there and see how much everyone had grown and developed as individuals. We make new year's resolutions on a regular basis. But what I've realized is that when we make resolutions, we tend to focus on what we haven't accomplished or done yet. In this episode, I wanted you to consider what you are proud of in your life. What did you accomplish in the year 2021? Let us begin the year with gratitude and pride in what we've accomplished thus far. The past year has been challenging for us as a health care clinician. We've been so busy that we've forgotten to pause, practice gratitude, and celebrate our accomplishments. As we begin this year, I want you to pause and reflect on your journey, no matter where you are. Allow yourself to sit in the joy and happiness of the present moment. Let us choose to begin this year with great pride!
