Michael Pergrem, also known as Coach Perg, is passionate about helping nurses lead the most fulfilling lives possible. In his own words: “I realized there is a great need for nurses to find their true path, either within their careers, or if desired, in pursuing an alternate calling. I came to realize I could better serve those I had cared for by caring for those that serve them (my fellow nurses). Helping nurses avoid or recover from burn-out and rediscover their passion in nursing could only serve to enhance their effectiveness in providing care to those that need them, both at the bedside and at home. "My mission is to help those other nurses who, like me, have discovered a burning desire to move on, in a different direction, be that a different field in nursing, or a different field altogether. “In either case to find their path that leads to: Realizing the boundless possibilities that are achievable, self empowerment, and joy. These are the rewards given to those of us who serve our true calling with passion.” We will spend this episode of RN.FM Radio exploring Coach Perg's approach to nursing burnout, nurse wellnes, nurse coaching, and his signature coaching methodology known as "Pergology". Join us for an insightful episode of RN.FM Radio with special guest Coach Perg!
