A nurse emailed me with a dilemma. She shared that she went into the field of nursing to be able to use holistic modalities and integrative therapies for patient healing. While she lived in a progressive geographic area who readily accepts complementary therapies, the hospital she worked in was a bit behind the times. This is common in healthcare… in fact, I hear it a lot from holistic nurses that I know.
While this video isn’t necessarily about getting holistic modalities into the workplace (if you’d like more information on that topic, check out Lourdes Lorenz’s interview during the 2016 Art of Nursing program) it IS about how to have success in your nursing career.
So often nurses go into the nursing profession to be able to help patients. They enjoy the teaching, advocacy, or helping nature of the work. When they get into their actual nursing careers… they are often surprised by how little they are able to actually do the things they love to do. So this video will share tips and strategies for staying flexible, using your resources, and networking with like-minded colleagues.
What did we miss? I’d love to hear how you increase your capacity for change. Leave a nursing career tip in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
