Working with Rachel the past few months in the Nurse Rx Coaching program has been so inspiring. Her courage to speak honestly and openly about the toxic culture of nursing as well as her own deeply rooted patterns of beliefs and behaviours is something to not take lightly. It’s not easy to look at the dark places of our life, but every day Rachel does so with grace and openness.
End the Silence – Stories of Nurses
About this podcast.
The “End the Silence Podcast – Stories of Nurses” was launched in 2021 to create a platform for nurses to share their stories.
Nurses work in some of the most demanding and toxic environments possible. They are exposed to violence, abuse, and trauma, sometimes on a daily basis. They are there for the best and brightest moments, and for the darkest. The roles they play are heavy and the emotional toll this can have on many of them is hard to bare. We are living and working amongst a mental health crisis in our world right now, but even more so in the nursing workforce and without them our health care systems will crumble.
This podcast is not only for the brave nurses who choose to have their voices heard but also for the listeners, the thousands of nurses who are out there suffering in silence. Who are afraid to speak up because of stigma and fear and unrealistic expectations that they carry as primarily women nurses.
The nurses on the podcast share not only their struggles but their inspiration, reflections and their hope for change. When we own our truth and share our stories we break the stigma, and we dissolve the unrealistic societal expectations, and we provide an opportunity for healing, deep authentic connection, and growth.
We need each other more than ever and together we can rise, and it starts by ending the silence.
It’s real, raw, and you don’t want to miss a single episode!
