Nurses Need to Focus on Self-Care
Today we’re here with Tierra Owen, RN, BS.
Tierra Owen, RN, BS has been a registered nurse for more than 12 years, specializing in labor & delivery and postpartum. She recently launched Nursing Ourselves, an online platform and hub to increase nurse self-care.
Tierra is interested in many self-care modalities and has the ultimate goal of improving nurse health, resilience, and work/life balance. She particularly wants to support practical ways to eat better, train smarter, and stay calm and focused in our work/lives.
A few take aways from our first interview of five with Tierra Owen, RN, BS include:
- How each of us can take simple steps to refocus on our own well-being;
- What areas of health and wellness nurses should reflect on;
- And why nurses need more focus on self-care than anybody else!
Tierra Owen: Holistic Nurse
Tierra Owen is one of the most supportive and caring nurses that I know. She focuses on self-care for herself, her family, and her fellow nurse. In fact, isn’t the first time you have met Tierra as she was a guest on episode 130 of the Your Next Shift podcast.
A resource mentioned in this episode was the book, Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl.
