Nurses are the backbone of health care. Always there to care for a stranger as if they were one of their own. Forsaking special moments with their own families to ensure that another families loved ones are being cared for.
Compassion fatigue, Stress and Burnout are on the rise in healthcare workers. This is what has driven Elaina to launch Happy Nurse. To promote self care strategies to her fellow nurses and healthcare workers.
Committing to self care is just that – a commitment. But believe me when I tell you it will be worth it. My personal commitment is to provide you with effective self care strategies, understanding and support while accomplishing lasting results that will benefit you both professionally and personally.
