The need to effectively meet the mental health needs of nurses is a priority! Nurses account for the largest number of healthcare professionals. Nurses are entrusted with providing care to those who are most vulnerable. Further, nurses are also faced with providing care during times of increased stress, and workforce demands secondary to staffing shortages, and limited resources. As such, nurses are at a significant risk for the negative effects of their stressful work environments. Further, the global COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the stress levels in the nursing workforce and the impact on nurses. The stressful work environment for nurses has been well documented in the literature and the need to support the mental health needs of nurses should not be understated. What strategies can be utilized to enhance the mental health needs of nursing professionals? In this webinar, you will learn from our content expert strategies to enhance the mental health of nursing professionals. We will discuss risk factors for mental health issues in nurses, and the prevalence of mental health issues amongst nurses in the workforce. Additionally, you will earn 1 hour of nursing continuing professional development credit for attending this webinar on enhancing the mental health of nurses.
