Description: The goal of this program is to help nurses prevent, identify and manage compassion fatigue. Nursing is a hard emotional, physical, and spiritual work, but it is also very rewarding. Tension and turmoil come within the territory of being a nurse. The stresses and strains of working in the nursing industry can take their toll on even the strongest personality. From persistent patients to strict regulations, nurses are constantly facing challenges both big and small, physical and emotional. At some point, it is more than likely that the pressures of your job will get to you and you will wonder, “Is it worth it?” Burnout, also known as compassion fatigue, can get the best of you, but only if you let it.
