Blog - The Burnout Book
Hello! I'm Anna M. Rodriguez, BSN, RN, CCRN, PCCN. I've been a Registered Nurse since 2008.
I've worked in a variety of areas: medical/surgical, telemetry, cardiovascular ICU, nurse manager, ICU travel nurse, critical care float pool, and endoscopy.
During my eleven years as a nurse, I’ve witnessed healthcare professionals struggle with major issues like burnout, compassion fatigue, and moral distress.
While working as a nurse manager, I experienced burnout myself!
I was able to return to bedside nursing after two years and that’s when I became obsessed with the topic of burnout. I created The Burnout Book, a website and blog with a mission to help my fellow nurses know they aren’t alone, help them find the tools and resources they need to avoid burnout in their profession, and help them keep their spark for nursing! I also focus on how healthcare organizations can create healthy work environments and support their staff.
