Out of the Dark and Into the Light: The Unexpected Journey of Nurse Addiction
The journey of nurse addiction comes as a surprise for most who experience it. This phenomenological qualitative study demonstrates that most nurses who become addicted never imagined addiction would happen to them, even if they have a strong family history of the disease! In this study, 14 nurse addicts in recovery were interviewed about their experiences and risk perceptions. Five themes were identified from the study: (a) Fear was a significant part of the experience of being a nurse who was addicted; (b) Shame and guilt were felt by nurses who were addicted; (c) Poor coping: Addicted nurses reported having underdeveloped coping skills; (d) Control: Addicted nurses felt an increased need to control their environments; and (e) A core problem inherent in nurses who were addicted was a belief that addiction would never happen to them. Discussion of the five identified themes is followed by a discussion about addiction risk, prevention, and suggestions for application in nursing education. Participants discussed their experience with nurse addiction in their nursing education experiences and offered suggestions for more effective ways to teach the subject in nursing school.

Above All Else, Success in Life and Business

Did you believe you had life figured out at a young age—only to realize you still had a lot to learn as hardships and loss became the norm? Author Nancy Butler knows how you feel. She married at age 15, had two children, and sixteen years later, she found herself in the process of divorce without any child support or alimony. Having limited professional skills, she set out to find a career that would not only support her children, but would also help other people.

Told in practical anecdotal fashion, you will be inspired by Butler. Grow with her during her struggles as a young bride, and then mother. Learn from her as she finds a profession in which she not only finds success, but also helps countless people design their own futures. Laugh with her as she shares funny moments from family life. Hurt with her as she loses her father and other loved ones, and then honors their legacies. Rejoice with her as she finds a second chance at love.

Butler built her financial planning business to close to $200 million in assets under management and then purposefully chose her successor before leaving the business to pursue other endeavors. She has been quoted in many local and national publications including the USA Today and The Day. She has been a speaker for major corporations such as Pfizer, General Dynamics, and Dow Chemical. And she has been a guest on several live TV and radio shows.
