I recently got the question from a new nurse practitioner, “what do you do when you want to give up as a nurse practitioner?”

I’ve definitely been there before myself, and with the stress of this last year and a half, I know a lot of other new nurse practitioners and NP students are feeling that way, too.

When You Want to Give Up as a Nurse Practitioner

In this week’s video, I’m covering what to do when you feel like this, including:

  • The most important questions to ask yourself to help sort through your feelings and get to the root of feeling like yourself again
  • Real-life contexts of what this may look like for you, and the options to consider
  • A few personal stories about how I experienced burnout and what I’ve done to cope with it
