New nurses are most vulnerable to burnout during their first three years of practice. In this webinar, the authors of Self-Care for New and Student Nurses will focus on keeping self-care relevant to the needs of early career nurses. They will share self-care “superpowers” that are fundamental to every nurse’s professional and personal wellbeing. They will also discuss nurses’ choices and decisions that are fundamental to composing an integrated and meaningful life. All of this will be placed within the context of the real-world challenges that face nurses and health systems today.
This course will retire after 26th August 2024.
After participating in this course, learners will be able to:
- Be able to practice three or more “self-care superpowers” that can serve as the foundation of wellbeing in every nurse’s professional and personal life.
- Explore their own agency in composing a meaningful life as a nurse.
- Recognize the relevance of self-care to the changing needs of our nurses within changing health systems.
