Nurses Serve Others and Ourselves
Nurses, it’s time to give it all you’ve got. That’s right, remember… nursing is a career of service. And who better to serve than yourself? The very best way to continue to go that extra mile is through being mindful to take care of you along the way.
A few take aways from our interview with Charisse Hughson-Chitolie, FNP-C include:
- How comfortable clothes and smelly candles can set you up for job success;
- What going that extra mile may do for you, the patient, or their family;
- And why balancing service for others with care for self is the key to career enjoyment!
