Stress at Work and at Home
April 1 - April 30
In a recent survey, eighty-two percent of surveyed RNs and nursing students indicated they were at a significant level of risk for workplace stress (ANA & IGC, 2016). This stress often affects the health of nurses and sometimes even the outcomes of patients and patient care. It also affects how nurse leaders work with their staff to help reduce stress. ANA is providing resources to help nurses cope with stress.
Below are some resources you can share with your fellow nurses. Contact Holly Carpenter at email@example.com for more information.
