I frequently counsel RNs who are so extremely stressed out that they can’t see anything better for their future in nursing. They’re stuck in their past.

I was recently advising a 32-year-old woman (NOT a legal nurse consultant) regarding a failure in her business venture. This woman who is usually vibrant and spunky had turned negative and pessimistic overnight
It’s summer here in Houston and summer in this part of the world translates to scorching heat (100+ degrees) combined with unrelenting humidity (100+%).
