Nurse practitioner burnout

Signs and Symptoms of Nurse Practitioner Burnout:

  • Work-life imbalance– spending more time at work and less time at home
  • Lack of purpose in work as a nurse practitioner
  • Feeling unsatisfied in current work
  • Impatient or irritable with others
  • Mental symptoms- foggy, poor clinical judgment, decreased productivity
  • Physical symptoms- sleep, headaches, chronic disease, fatigue
  • Emotional symptoms- anxiety, depression, chronic stress
  • Working in a toxic work environment 
  • Anxious and worrisome thoughts
  • Negative or limiting beliefs (imposter syndrome)
  • Stressing or thinking about work at all times
  • Difficulty processing trauma and difficult work experiences
  • Spending hours of unpaid time trying to catch up on charting
  • Burnout negatively impacts your personal life and family

By 2025 47% of healthcare workers will leave the profession.

An article written by Forbes titled, “Unless We Future-Proof Healthcare, By 2025, 47% Of Healthcare Workers Will Leave The Profession,” demonstrates the current reality of healthcare. 

47% of healthcare workers is a staggering statistic. 

But if you currently work as a nurse practitioner, you might agree it is not far off. 

The past three years have been incredibly difficult for all healthcare providers. 

And so many APRNs are struggling with nurse practitioner burnout. 

As nurse practitioners, we constantly put others needs in front of our own. 


Our workday is filled with caring for everyone but ourselves. 


The current roles and responsibilities of nurse practitioners continue to grow as the support diminishes


The modern healthcare system creates a lot of challenges for nurse practitioners. Between the push to see more patients (and sicker patients in a shorter amount of time), adhering to increasingly strict insurance guidelines, and decreasing attention to work-life balance, nurse practitioners are struggling


Many clinics, hospitals, and healthcare institutions are trying to function while short-staffed. There is a lack of medical assistants (MAs), nurses, even front office staff. This creates added roles that many nurse practitioners have to take on themselves. Nurse practitioners sacrifice their own time and energy to complete these duties. 


It’s no wonder nurse practitioners are burned-out and ready to leave healthcare!


Nurse practitioners spend more time at work (or bringing charts home) and less time with their families. This creates a work-life imbalance that puts nurse practitioners at a significant risk factor for burnout. 


But imagine if you could be an accomplished nurse practitioner AND feel fulfilled

Imagine if you could create a better work-life balance

Imagine if you could spend more time at home and less time at work

Imagine if you could rediscover the reason why you became a nurse practitioner. 


Imagine if you could overcome the nurse practitioner burnout and get your life back!
