Message from SDSU School of Nursing Wellness Task Force:
We know how challenging it can be to develop healthy coping strategies for the stressors of life, especially when balancing regular life with the work of nursing. These skills do not develop spontaneously–it takes effort and practice to learn the things that work for you and the sooner you start, the more prepared you will be for future challenges. Explore the ideas on this page, get involved with the SDSU Student Nurse Association or join the Wellness Task Force, and let us know about new strategies you find so we can add them here. It takes a village to protect each other mentally and emotionally as we care for others.
ANA DEFINITION OF A HEALTHY NURSE
One who actively focuses on creating and maintaining a balance and synergy of physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, financial, personal, and professional wellbeing.”
