What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? I was born to parents with a limited world view that girls should grow up to be nurses or teachers and boys should be cops or firemen. I was a candy striper and a lifeguard and my close friends were choosing nursing as a major. Fortunately, nursing was a perfect fit for me.

    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."

What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? I cannot say that any one thing attracted me to nursing - I have always wanted to be a nurse...As Lady Gaga would say "I was born this way" Sarah Mott, RN, @Nurseborn, Nurse Born, LLC:"Nurse Born specializes in products designed by nurses.

What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? My mother wanted both my sister and I to become nurses. She was taken to the labor camps in Auschwitz when she was 16. Fortunately she was smuggled out and had to find her way through the then countries of Czechoslovakia to find somewhere safe to live. She got on a train to go up to Germany. There were Red Cross doctors and nurses on the train. Shortly after she got on and the train started to take off it stopped and Nazi soldiers came on the train and were headed right for my mother and her traveling companions. The American doctor told them she was one of his nurses. She did not speak English and he did not speak German however they understood each other. After glaring at them both the Nazi's left the train. My mother shared that story and said she wanted us both to be nurses. I was always interested in well-being and curious about why people do what they do. It was a natural fit for me although secretly I always wanted to have my own business. I went to Nursing school and ended up working as a Critical Care Monitor tech (this was 40 years ago!!!) and loved technology and immediately went into ICU where I worked for 10 years before going into Mental Health. I was struck by how nurses and physicans would take care of everyone else at their own expense. I went to graduate school and chose degrees in Psychology as I wanted to understand how to change behavior.

Cynthia Howard RN, CNC, PhD, Vibrant Radiant Health, @MasterWellBeing, California Nursing Entrepreneurs:"I work with business owners and professionals to move beyond barriers that keep them stuck, whether that is due to fatigue, negative limited thinking or a lack of clarity around their business idea. My practice is primarily national with a few international clients. Most recently I rebranded myself and want to focus primarily within the nursing community and provide coaching and consulting service for individuals and organizations to build resilience and emotional intelligence for stronger leadership. I have a competency based training program called the Resilient Leader. I have founded the Live Well Community Network and want to build a community of nursepreneurs and nurses (healthcare professionals) who want to move beyond burnout for an exceptionally full life. I have an online membership program and will be holding live events around the country bringing together nursepreneurs with individuals who need their service. This site is www.workplaylivewell.com The first event is Ocean city MD September 27 2014"

What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? What attracted me to nursing was the fact that in order to be truly good at the job itself, you have to connect with others. This includes discovering their definition of wellness, of pain, of comfort, and of suffering. It's an honor to peek into someone's life and meeting him or her where they are vulnerable in order to build them up through education, prayer, or simply listening.

Leah Korkis, BSN, RN, Healthy Now and Later:"Healthy Now and Later is a free resource for caregivers and those 55+. There they will find information on common health topics, health promotion recipes for special diets, and a nation-wide database of local services and financial aid.

Michelle DeLizio Podlesni, RN, CEO Bloom Service Group, Inc. and President of the National Nurses in Business Association:"As president of the NNBA my focus will be on creating additional opportunities for members to learn and develop business skills to accelerate and maximize their success.

We will continue to expand the association through education, coaching programs, national networking, mentoring and conferences."

What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? How I actually got into nursing is a funny story that my mom likes to remind me of all of the time. My senior year of college I was moving into an apartment with two nursing majors. One of them even had a nurse professor at our school for a mother! So needless to say as we were unpacking our stuff and I was standing there telling them I "didn't know what I wanted to do when I grew up" they all put their heads together, the four of them (my two roommates to be, my mother, and her mother the nursing professor) and decided I apply to the accelerated nursing program at my college. So for me, it wasn't so much a "choice" but I am grateful I listened to their guidance every day of my life!

What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? Well in all honesty, I was in my late 20s when I went to nursing school. I had been interested in a variety of medical professions and already had a BS in Biochemistry. A friend of mine's mother, an RN talked with me at length about what she loved about nursing, the practical lure of lots of job opportunities, and my own interest combined led me to applying to an ADN program. I was kind of drifting with teaching high school science and working on hazardous waste field projects and looking for lab jobs that I didn't really want. I got in and from the very first class realized that the nursing profession was way more challenging and exciting than I realized. It is funny that I minored in "Theatre and Communication" with my biochem degree and now have come to this exciting work in Medical Improv. It's all related in sometimes mysterious ways! Thanks for asking.

We teach a physical-environmental-financial-social-emotional model... like a nursing assessment.

We offer a 23-hour certification course for nurses who are fitness enthusiasts, who want to help pre-diabetics, with a specifically designed program for them, that will improve their health and reduce their waists in a sustainable manner. This is done through a 12-week group coaching course via the computer, video and telephone. We also teach you how to get started with only a few clients working part-time, from home and making full time money in a scalable business model. The physician and other health care professionals are actually where we get our clients and we utilize a fitness nursing assessment to determine the right minimum effective dose (M.E.D.) of diet, exercise and supplementation, the right client and the right time, which are the 3 Rights of a Certified Fitness Nurse™ Coach."

What Attracted You ToThe Field of Nursing? I was a Certified Swedish Massage Practitioner and Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor during my 20’s after leaving behind my studies in several schools of fine art. After some years in the holistic health field, I found that I wanted to be able to impact people’s health from the "inside" of the system rather than just the "outside."

I had three aunts who were nurses---one who was a personal nurse to General Patton during World War II---and their stories of nursing and its importance made an impression on me from a very early age.

I always perceived nursing as a humble and important profession, and joining the ranks of nurses seemed like a perfect "fit" for me vis-à-vis fulfilling my goal of bringing improved health to as many people as possible over the course of my career. The holistic nursing model was a good match with my previous training in holistic health, and my ongoing goal has always been to bring that holism back to the forefront of nursing practice.

What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? In 1986 I attended nursing school as a way to support my 2 little boys following a divorce. Many years ago I was called to hospice and found out that I had an ability to connect with people that was very fulfilling and actually made a difference. Well, I began to see this ability as a gift that I was given to help others. So, early in my hospice career I knew that I had a duty to bring comfort and care to those dealing with the end of life. Every day, I am thankful that I have the honor and privilege of caring for the dying.
