#039 – Nurse Burnout Part 1 | Heather Brittain

Are you feeling burned out as a healthcare worker? How can we protect our health and set boundaries at work?

Heather Brittain’s natural passion for serving others led her into the field of nursing.

After coming face to face with her own health complications, Heather said enough was enough and decided to make a change.

In today’s episode, Suzanne and Heather discuss nurse burnout and what to do about it. Heather shares her story and how a moment of clarity led her down a new path as a healer for healers.
