Hey nurse friends! You know when you're admitting or rooming a patient and you have to “grab a quick weight" so they start stripping down nearly to their skivvies trying to lose every ounce they can before those dooming digits flash on the display?
You know what's coming... that awkward moment where you have to decide if you're going to laugh with them or use it as a teaching moment (because you know as a nurse we should be giving education on healthy diet and moderate exercise). But at the same time you KNOW they're thinking, "well you're obviously no expert yourself". It's embarrassing, I know, I've been there too! Embarrassed, disappointed in yourself and feeling like a hypocrite when you don't even know how to answer their nutrition questions.
Good news: there's a solution that doesn't involve hours at the gym or skipping meals and treats with your friends. I know you think that because you can name all the muscles that should be on Mr. Bones and you have a degree in health you can figure this out on your own, but think back to where you were 6 months ago. Are you any further ahead now than you were then?? Where do you want to be in the next 6 months? Probably not still doing the same old song and dance expecting different results, am I right? So if you're serious about finally feeling confident in that nutrition conversation and want to be the role model you set out to be in this field you need to try a different method. I have helped 6 nurses in the past 2 months learn how to own their nutrition (even with on-the-go, 12 hour shifts), practice what we preach and dig back into that bag of scrubs that almost made it to the Salvation Army! Total win win!
So go to the link in my bio, fill out the application and let's see if we're a good fit. Nothing will change if you don't, so let me help you make the change!
