Phoenix Nurses: A Path to Renewal

Sometimes being on the front lines involves caring for our colleagues. “Assisting nurses to nurture and heal themselves” is a defined role of holistic nursing practice (AHNA & ANA, 2013, p. 8). Nothing can be more catastrophic for a nurse’s career than the loss of her/his license to practice. In this dark hour, a nurse will often need extra support and someone to walk alongside her/him in the healing process. This article describes a holistic nurse in North Carolina who is helping nurses in her region find the courage to rise up from the ashes and start anew.
