Welcome to TheWellNurseLife…a blog about just that…being a well-nurse and having a well-life 🙂 Thank you soooo much for stopping by!!! TheWellNurseLife is a blog and coaching service for nurses, nursing assistants, medical assistants, technicians, support staff, and even providers, along with their family and friends. Here at TheWellNurselife we focus on how healthcare professionals can find and create their own personal and professional health. (We all know that this is not an easy thing to do!!)
As you know, my name is Emily. I have a degree in Health Promotion & Wellness and have been a nurse for the past 13 years. I am a wife and a mom to two giant breed Saint Bernard mix rescue dogs. I am a lover of all things chocolate and all things coconut, a runner-wanna-be, and am striving to be a “clean eater” (some days I do better at this than other days). I live in a log home in the woods where I am able to stay connected with nature and find the peace, calm, and reguvination that I need. I like to keep life simple and work to find happiness and positivity in each day. I continue to learn how to live with and manage my own chronic illness, and my own health and wellness is a continual work in progress.
For many years, my cup was filled as an oncology nurse, caring for cancer patients, and working in a leadership role to care for my team. But, a couple of years ago, when I hit my lowest point, both professionally and personally, I realized that I am one of the many healthcare professionals that does not have a well-nurse life. Even though I had the training and knowledge, I found myself struggling to find and maintain my own health and wellness. While I was consumed by caring for my oncology patients and my nursing team, my own health and wellness fell apart…just like so many other healthcare professionals who are committed to their cause. From this, TheWellNurseLife was created, not only for my own healing and growth, but for the healing and growth of other nurses and medical support staff, whom I knew needed exactly the same thing that I did.
Here at TheWellNurseLife I will help guide you in finding, creating, and maintaining just that. TheWellNurseLife is a blog and coaching service. It was created as a resource to provide information, and a means to provide support and guidance that will help you find your own personal and professional health. TheWellNurseLife is a forum to increase awareness about the importance of being a well-nurse and having a well-life. It is a venue for providing resources, sharing information, educating, and implementing change on an individual and collective level. We are on this journey together, and I am here to help you every step of the way!!
This blog and coaching service is where my passion for nursing and helping others, along with my dream of being a writer, come together in a unique way. It is my hope that TheWellNurseLife can be a light and a voice, helping to create a movement, so that each healthcare professional can discover their own WellNurseLife!
Be good to yourself,
~Emily BS, BSN, RN
