Practical Solutions for Nurses’ Everyday Overwhelm

First of all, you do know that … All blog posts are ‘workouts’.

What I’m proposing to provide in my coming courses are:

“Practical Solutions for Nurses’ Everyday Overwhelm”


This statement is a spin off from founder, Ruth Soukup. She has quite a story and worth every minute spent learning about her. In an interview she said, I provide, “practical solutions for everyday overwhelm.” I loved the simplicity of this and it struck a chord.

My mom was a nurse leader decades ago, and her gift was always “being practical”.

And that is what I think would benefit nurses:

practical steps for dealing with feeling overwhelmed by their work,

so they can connect more meaningfully with their patients.

My goal is to reduce complex subjects into practical steps.

And there is NOT any other work more complex than nursing.

Practical = “of or concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas”; “sensible and realistic”. New Oxford American Dictionary.
