Mental Health of Nurses: Supporting You and Your Nursing Colleagues When They Need It Most (Free for ANA Members)
Dr. LaKeetra Josey will share her expertise as a practitioner and researcher during this session. She will focus on insight and strategies for mental health concerns in the nursing population.
Nursing, as a caring profession, can be both rewarding and stressful. Your work can affect our mental health. It’s essential that we take care of each other and ourselves. Nurses often don’t recognize how chronic stress and world events impact our psychological wellbeing. Join ANA’s webinar to learn how you can improve your skills in identifying and offering support for mental health challenges for you and your colleagues.
