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."

Perioperative nurse turned inventor. (nurse invents large suction cannister):"How many times have you seen a new product in the OR and thought, "Why didn't I think of that?" Or, worse yet, "That's my idea!" Where do most new Product ideas originate? They come from health care professionals working in the trenches and noticing that things could or should be done better or more efficiently. In 1993, I was the circulating nurse during an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction procedure when a clinical Practice problem set the stage for my invention of a product. I was busy hanging irrigation fluid, changing canisters, and doing paperwork when I had the brilliant idea of getting ahead of the action. I placed several 3-L bags of saline on the arthroscopic pump that was located close to my "desk."
