Where to start. Janie has been a nurse for 22 years. In that time she has been a solid, dependable comrade in what can often be a high paced, demanding, high energy profession. There are seldom thanks, but the heart of nursing is about the comfort you bring to a person in a most vulnerable moment, and Janie has always been one of these people, a nurse.
Working across many disciplines within the nursing profession there was one consistent theme that Janie felt had to be addressed, and that was burnout. The capacity for it, as many are already aware, is ever-present. Throw in a pandemic and what we can see is nurses who feel they have no choice but to walk away from a profession they love in order to manage and save their own exhausted bodies and mental health.
Janie wants to change this, she wants to give nurses a space to nourish their bodies, minds and souls in an effort heal, in an effort to nurse. Because that is who she is at her core, who we all are as nurses.
Let the giving back begin here.
