Staff nurses have been challenged dealing with this pandemic. More than ever we need to focus on our self-care so that we can properly advocate for our patients/residents as well as ourselves. Nurses are challenged not only in their work environment, but also their home environment as well. Home schooling, sending children to school in uncertain times, spouses and nurses working from home as well as in unpredictable work settings can all add stress. We ask that you take care of yourselves so that you are able to take care of others. We do need a plan.
Keep safe and healthy! And look out for each other!
