A while back in the Your Next Shift Facebook community, a nurse shared her weekly goal. She said that when she started in on her next nursing schedule, she would begin to cut back on her hours at work.

Good goal, but vague. And likely far off in time…

I challenged this nurse by asking what was one action step she could take THIS week to move her closer to reaching her goal of self-care.

Watch this video to learn how to have success both in your nursing career and your own self-care. Here’s to healthy nurse success!
