should I trim my bird’s nest fern leaves

My fern has brown edges and ends. Should I cut them off? It is outside. I have brought it inside now. Please tell me how to save my plant. I do not have a green thumb.

If the lower older leaves are looking scraggly you can prune them away, it’s normal for them to age.
If the rest of the plant is suffering from brown edges you may want to read the links below to determine a cause or correct it’s growing conditions.
I would wait to trim the remaining leaves until the plant has time to recover.
