Did you know (she said “tongue-in-cheek”) that healthcare providers get burned out? Yes we do. It does not matter if you are a nurse practitioner (NP), a physician assistant (PA), a physician (MD/DO), a registered nurse (RN) or any other type of healthcare provider…we sometimes just get burned out. Our work is rewarding but it’s hard.
Cynthia Howard, RN, CNC, PhD has a story to share and some help for those who are feeling burned out in her various workshops. The next is coming up in Seattle later this month. Even if you can’t make it, take a look and see if she is coming to a city near you. If not, reach out and see if she can help you.
Going Beyond Burnout to a Life Lived Well by Cynthia Howard, RN, CNC, PhD.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a nurse who so much wanted to live a full and complete life. When she graduated Nursing School, she was so excited and went to work every day with a ready and able attitude – ready to save the world. Slowly, every day, she came home less enthused, more tired and increasingly cynical about being able to change anything except the tires on her car.
One day, she realized she had come to the Point of No Return. She had lost her zeal and passion for nursing. She simply did not care and often felt angry for wasting her life. At the Point of No Return, the lighthouse had gone out, nothing new was coming to shore and no one could leave. She was isolated. No one could hear her cries or see her pain – without any way to go back, she could not see how she could feel good again. She felt numb and hopeless and thought there was no way to get back to the Promised Land where her hopes and dreams were last seen.
Feeling lonely and at her wits end she also knew that to stay at the Point of No Return she would die. One day out of nowhere a blimp flew across the sky dragging a banner:
Go Beyond Burnout: March 28 Seattle WA
What??? A way out??? The nurse decided this was her chance. She could meet other nurses and hear from people who had made their way back from the Point of No Return. Maybe she could learn just how to have an exceptionally good life…
