5 causes of nurse practitioner burnout

causes of nurse practitioner burnout

I was recently featured on The Chart Lyfe podcast and also wrote a guest blog post and I wanted to share it with you!

As The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner, I have talked with tons of burned-out nurse practitioners and have noticed some common causes of nurse practitioner burnout. Some of these causative agents are easier than others to change.

As I write about in a lot of The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner’s blog posts, APRNs face a lot of challenges and obstacles. From toxic work environments in specific healthcare settings, to a lack of personal or professional boundaries, to the challenges of the modern healthcare system, it’s no wonder nurse practitioners are burned-out!

That is why I created The Burned-out Nurse Practitioner, to bring awareness to the increasing numbers of burned-out nurse practitioners!

I hope you find the podcast and article helpful!
