Eileen Spillane, RN, MA, NP, The Balanced Nurse:"I help nurses reduce stress and bring balance into their lives through teaching classes, coaching, or presenting at conferences. I have worked individually with nurses via phone, Skype or in-person for those living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Issues addressed have been career transitions, workplace toxicity, burnout, stress management and issues with self-judgment. Often I work with nurses for three to six month time frames to support them to identify the road blocks preventing them from reaching their potential.

Classes I have taught have provided nurses with continuing education credit include Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Striking a Balance With Stress in Nursing, Breaking the Cycle of Work Place Toxicity, and Creating and Sustaining a Satisfying Career in Nursing.

I have presented as a Closing Keynote Speaker with Restore, Rejuvenate and Renew Your Energy: Bringing Balance Into Our Workday with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion.

I tailored a 4 hour workshop for Stanford University Bone Marrow Transplant Nurses called Finding The Balance in The Waves of Caregiving."

Critical-Care Nurse, Nurses for a Healthier Tomorrow:"Critical-care nursing is that specialty within nursing that deals specifically with human responses to life-threatening problems. A critical-care nurse is a licensed professional nurse who is responsible for ensuring that all critically ill patients and their families receive optimal care. Although very sick and complex patients have always existed, the concept of critical care is relatively modern. As advances have been made in medicine and technology, patient care has become much more complex. To provide appropriate care, nurses needed specialized knowledge and skills, while care delivery mechanisms also needed to evolve to support patients' needs for continuous monitoring and treatment. The first intensive care units emerged in the 1950s as a means to provide care to very sick patients who needed one-to-one care from a nurse. It was from this environment that the specialty of critical-care nursing emerged."

Bykowski, David, Nurse Entrepreneur, Texas Nursing Entrepreneurs:"I have a great interest in holistic medicine I am questioned many times as to why I sell products My answer is simple to spread the holistic approach You may ask how selling products spreads the holistic approach Well I have found that I can preach holistic philosophy all day long and accomplish very little but if I can change a persons life via the use of a natural substance not only have I won them over but all the people they share their joy with. Thus I find selling products is more effective than merely preaching the benifits of holistic health."

Peek-A-Boo

The famous female Olympic skier, Picabo Street (pronounced Peek-A-Boo), is not just an outstanding athlete, she is also a nurse. She currently works at the Intensive Care Unit of a large metropolitan hospital.

She is not permitted to answer the telephone, however, as it caused simply too much confusion when she would answer the phone and say, "Picabo, ICU."

(Please note, this is in fact an urban legend as verified by "snopes.com" we'll keep it here for clarification anyhow."
