Overcome Burnout And Stress To Thrive As A Nurse

When you become a nurse, it becomes a deep part of your identity, and sometimes it is easy to think that there is no alternative but to leave nursing, but there is. Nursing skills are transferable to anything you want to do, including leadership and entrepreneurship. However, we’re more inclined to undervalue our skillsets, and looking outside can help us break out of the boxes we create for ourselves.  Legality and regulation in nursing can create unnecessary fear and trap you in the what-if cycle. So, take time to rewire your mind to come out of burnout and stress and create the life you desire.

Join the conversation with Kristy Anne as she shares about her experiences with burnout and stress and how to rewire your mindset to build your business and create the life you love. Kristy is a Nurse, Behavioural scientist, podcaster, and author. She is also a mum to a beautifully witty tween and has a passion for health, wellness, and behavior change. Kristy explains this further in her best-selling book “30 Day Self-care Solution for Nurses.”
