Nurses are often nurturers by nature. But how and when are nurses taking the opportunity to care for their own wellbeing? Dr. Sharon Tucker, psychiatric mental health clinical nurse specialist and professor at The Ohio State University College of Nursing, leads us through a 1-hour event to help nurses thrive by prioritizing emotional and social wellness.
Nurses, you deserve this time and attention for yourselves. Join us for a 60-minute session that focuses on mindful presence and articulating gratitude, and leave the event with concrete strategies to care for yourself, first.
