This week we are joined by Molly Hillig Rodriguez, RN, BSN, MPH, CEO of Empower Yourself Coaching. She reached out to Adrianne to discuss the very sensitive, yet important topic of suicide among nurses.
Nurses are four times more likely to commit suicide than individuals not working in healthcare (Yazdi, 2017). The combination of physical, emotional, mental and financial stressors is a real threat to the well-being of our front line healthcare providers. We are opening up the discussion.
This week Adrianne is talking money - specifically student loan repayment - a topic that has most of us fresh graduates totally stressed out. Since Adrianne is one of the stressed out masses, she’s having a conversation with expert and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Travis Hornsby, founder of studentloanplanner.com.
Andrew and Adrianne talk about common myths held about nurses working the night shift. Night nurses can’t help but cringe when folks say to us “you must love how quiet night shift is, with all the patients sleeping”. Um, not exactly.
Many nursing programs require between 200-300 clinical hours to get you graduated, so why not harness the behaviors and tips to get you through with confidence and your health mostly intact.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but these are the basics that Adrianne believes will set you up for clinical success.
