Moving forward into an open field.
EVERYONE asks me if I’m excited to be ending my time as an employed nurse.
I was also asked if it felt weird that I was no longer going to BE a nurse.
My answers today are: Yes, I am excited. Not because I’m getting the heck out of here, but because I’m making moves towards my passion–helping people let go what what is holding them back and feel good again! I am also sure that things are not going to be roses on this path, but the difference is that there will be serious internal meaning behind whatever new hardships I face.
Second answer is: I am definitely still a nurse. My coaching business is 100% still part of my nursing profession.
The principles of nursing according to Florence Nightingale:
- The sick person is an individual with individual needs.
- Nursing is an art and a science.
- Nurses should spend their time caring for patients, not cleaning.
- Prevention is better than cure.
- The nurse must work as a member of a team.
- The nurse must use discretion.
- Self-discipline and self-evaluation are important.
- A good nursing program encourages individual development of the nurse.
- The nurse should be healthy in mind and body.
- Teaching is a part of nursing.
- Nursing is a specialty.
- A nurse does not “graduate”, but continues to learn throughout his or her career.
- The nursing curriculum should include both theoretical knowledge and practical experience.
Florence Nightingale has always been a woman I’ve admired. Did you know she ran away from her family to be a nurse despite their serioius disapproval? Badass, girlfriend!
My favorite principle of Florence’s is for a nurse to be healthy in mind and body. The only way I will be healthy in mind and body is if I proceed on this path.
Most importantly, you can get on this path too!. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my coaches, and to pay it forward, I want to help you get to where you really want and deserve to be too.
