We know how important nurses are in healthcare. That's why we have so many on our team!
The nursing leaders here at PerfectServe have some thoughts to share with you on this year’s National Nurses Week theme, Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body and Spirit.
"You were called to the nursing life and gifted with the ability to give as others cannot. Treasure that, and take care of you as well as you take care of others. When you’re home, be home, and soak in the love of your family."
"To be our best and to give our best to our patients, we must embrace the model of self-care and apply it to ourselves. I encourage each new nurse, each mentor and role model to find that which balances you and actively pursue it. The time we take to care for ourselves will ultimately benefit our patients!"
"Compassion, while being one of our greatest gifts, can also become the very quality that leads us to over commitment professionally and personally. So learn what burnout looks like in you. These symptoms can take on many forms from physical to mental. Don’t be afraid to ask for help."
"Core to the mission of nursing is giving to others—time, attention, care and support. Giving comes from one’s center and requires a solid spiritual foundation providing meaning, priority and purpose to one’s daily activities. Nurses must commit to giving to oneself in order to give to others."
"By nature, nurses are caretakers and excellent at multitasking. We often take on way too many responsibilities and we need to remind ourselves to stay nourished, sleep and take time to exercise."
Join the PerfectServe nurses and tell us how you stay healthy! Submitted responses will be posted to this page to share with the community of nurses.
