Listener Request: How I Became a Nurse - Adrianne's Roller Coaster Story

There is more than one way to become a nurse. Adrianne’s journey was more of a saga. Recently, she got a message from a listener asking Adrianne to tell her story. The listener wanted to know things like how old Adrianne was when she finished, what degree path she chose, and what obstacles she faced along the way. Becoming a nurse is a difficult undertaking, and many of you know that is a gross understatement. The material is hard, has real-life consequences, AND the system is broken and inefficient making it all that much harder. If you know and love someone who is working towards or through nursing school, this may give you some perspective on what they’re experiencing. If you’re on the journey yourself and also leaping hurdles, know that your hard work will pay off. Keep going. If I can do it, you can do it.

This week Adrianne chats with Nurse Margo about aromatherapy use at the bedside, specifically in palliative and end-of-life care. They discuss how aromatherapy is used in the hospital setting, as well as how Margo approached this evidence-based project, and how she helped improve essential oil use on the unit.

Preventing Suicide Among Nurses with Molly Hillig Rodriguez

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 and how we work to prevent this tragedy. According to an article from Nurse.org, 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 frontline healthcare providers. Molly and Adrianne discuss the imperative need for suicide prevention programs in healthcare institutions and the much-needed involvement of nurse leaders. They highlight ways leaders can reduce suicide risk among nursing staff, how individuals can identify signs of increased suicide risk, and how to be a support to someone who is struggling. Molly also provides some great resources to give each of you a boost of empowerment and education on how to mainta...
