Welcome to another insightful episode! In today's discussion, we had the privilege of sitting down with Vicky Boateng, a dedicated critical care ICU Registered Nurse who wears multiple hats - not only as a healthcare professional but also as a certified executive coach.

In the high-stakes world of nursing, where physical and mental challenges abound, we've shed light on the paramount significance of establishing mental health practices. We've also discussed how nurses are akin to coaches in their own right. We drew parallels between the skills nurses utilize in their patient care roles and those employed by coaches in guiding individuals to reach their potential. This episode is not to be missed!
