Reclaiming Your Power in Nursing

Reclaiming Your Power in Nursing
In this podcast, I discuss the concept of reclaiming your power as a nurse and living on your own terms. I highlight how our inner critic can sabotage us and how traditional nursing practices may no longer be relevant in today's changing world. I emphasize the importance of seeking clarity from within ourselves rather than relying on external sources. Throughout the podcast, I introduce a tool called the CTFAR coaching framework, which helps us understand the connection between our thoughts, feelings, actions, and results. By applying this tool, we can take control of our thinking and create positive change in our lives.Key Takeaways:01:16 Nursing on Your Own Terms02:25 Challenging Conditioning in Healthcare03:34 The Power of Interrupting Neural Pathways06:19 The CTFAR Coaching Framework08:45 The Influence of Thoughts on Feelings and Actions11:25 Choosing to Think and Act13:08 The Importance of Self-AwarenessWant to land your graduate nursing role with ease?Didn't land your grad?
