One of the things that I discovered when writing my book and forming my vision was that nurses need help developing and maintaining self-care. The following links I have found to be really helpful and especially the Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation challenge from the American Nurses Association.
Sign up for their text reminders and you'll be reminded daily that you have a reachable self-care goal.
Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation challenge from the American Nurses Association
Thousands of nurses have joined the movement. What are you waiting for? Improve your health with us! www.hnhn.org
The American Association of Critical Care Nurses has defined six evidence-based standards to help nurses have the healthiest workplace possible. Learn more about the standards and how to achieve them at: https://www.aacn.org/nursing-excellence/healthy-work-environments
Purdue University Global (blog entry, n.d.) created this excellent blog entry on The Importance of Self-care for Nurses and how to put a plan in place, at https://www.purdueglobal.edu/blog/nursing/self-care-for-nurses/
One of the better articles I've read on self-care, in general, can be found at: https://www.bustle.com/wellness/types-of-self-care-how-to-practice-experts
I especially like this one because it breaks down the different types, AND it specifically speaks to how self-care isn't about spending money on gimmicks, financial self-care is important too!
