Who is Dragonfly Meadows...
I'm Jennifer Kirk, BA, BN, RN, EFLP, the founder of Dragonfly Meadows, offering
Equine Facilitated Learning workshops for RN'S, LPN'S and other professional caregivers since 2014.
I am a practicing Registered Nurse with 17 years of experience, with the majority of my career in critical care, I know all too well the challenges of Nurses in health care today. I had my first Equine Facilitated Learning Experience in 2012 and was captivated. I knew wanted to figure out a way to bring horses and nurses together. I had a huge "A-ha" moment when...
I read an article on Compassion Fatigue in a magazine... I read it and I thought "That's me.. I am too tired to care".
I offered my first workshop in 2014, I was definitely on to something.....
Nursing tends to be a well-respected profession and there are many wonderful aspects to it but it also has its challenges. It is after all the profession known for "eating they're young".
Throughout my career, I have personally experienced low morale, burnout, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, moral injury, bullying, poor work-life balance, and general disempowerment. With the help of a wonderful mental health professional who provided equine therapy and EMDR, horses have helped me heal and be able to continue to work in the profession.
Covid -19 has decimated the nursing profession. I fear what the fallout will be for nurses working worldwide...
I have been inspired to develop this program for other equine facilitated practitioners to support nurses. This has been a work in progress for quite some time, and I am proud of this course.
