About The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner
I'm Erica D the NP
I am a formerly burned-out family nurse practitioner, burnout coach, and creator of The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner.
I was there.
In 2015, I became burned-out from nursing. Working as a RN on a busy, acute care floor, I developed burnout symptoms including: mental, physical, emotional exhaustion.
I dreaded going to work and felt detached from my patients, my co-workers, my family, and even myself. I was completely burned-out and ready to leave healthcare.
Overtime, I learned to take control of my life. To set the boundaries. To do the self-care. To resolve the burnout.
I am now a family nurse practitioner at a critical access hospital. I created The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner to help overwhelmed NPs overcome the burnout, just like I did!
