Nursing From Stillness: Why Self-Care is Essential for Ourselves and Our patients


A substantial amount of emerging evidence is highlighting an epidemic of burnout within the healthcare workforce. Provider burnout has been found to be associated with increased rates of medical errors, lost productivity, depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation.
Registered nurses and the systems within which they work, need to prioritize self-care to enhance personal well-being and promote optional patient outcomes. While nurses know that self-care is important, many lack practical strategies for consistent integration within the demands of their many roles. This course seeks to highlight those practical strategies and present tools to improve the consistent integration of those strategies.
