Caring is at the heart of nursing. It is important that we care for ourselves and each other. Sometimes a nurse may feel alone, even when working as part of a healthcare team. It helps to take time to process the extraordinary stressors (trauma) experienced by nurses in their personal circumstances and while working in the nursing profession.
Nurses are wives, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters and so many things to many people. We have many titles and wear many hats. Caring is what a nurse does and it sometimes feels like a 24 hour a day job. A nurse doesn’t stop being a nurse when she leaves the workplace. We bring our nurse selves to everything we do.
Nurses are heroes, warriors, healers, and nurturers. They are human. They are not immune to feeling the impact of their childhood experiences, relationship conflicts, family stresses, mood difficulties, and worries.
