Top 6 Nursing Challenges Solutions and Stress Reduction Strategies Every Nurse Needs
When I first became a nurse, I LOVED it. I had so much pride for what I did, and gained so much satisfaction from offering my patients comfort and support in difficult times.
It didn’t take long, however, for things to go downhill. I began to see why many nurses are jaded, and why so many leave the profession.
There are the obvious issues such as long hours, insufficient breaks, and complete exhaustion. What was worse for me was the lack of support — even downright cruelty — from my supervisors and colleagues.
But it was when I realized I was no longer making a difference in my patients’ lives that I knew something had to change

Hot Topics for Nurse Leaders: Six Calls to Action
with Karen Burton, PhD, RN, CNE
|Gone are the days when nurses spent their shifts perfectly folding bed sheets, giving backrubs, and emptying bedpans. The role of the nurse in the 21st century has evolved and changed drastically from those earlier days. Nurses today walk into their work settings and have to deal with ever-changing technologies, conflict with patients or co-workers, and a variety of situations which require skills they don’t often learn in nursing school. Nurses of today must be able to think and prioritize care that is much more complex, while at the same time making important split-second decisions and acting as leaders and educators.
