Wellbeing Strategies for Nurses

Practical strategies for combating burnout and improving mental health while working as a nurse

Wellbeing Strategies for Nurses explores clear, straightforward, and practical techniques for cultivating resilience and positive mental health strategies in the face of a demanding clinical environment. This pocket-sized book is easy to carry during your clinical placement and offers tips, advice, and hard-won words of wisdom from student and qualified nurses to support you through a challenging, yet rewarding, career. You'll find stress-busting tools as well as exercises intended for long-term relief of stress incorporated throughout the book.

Readers will also find:
* A thorough introduction to self-care and wellbeing for nurses, as well as discussions of stress and guided meditation practice exercises
* Comprehensive explorations of breathing, humour, and nature therapy
* Practical discussions of muscle relaxation and the importance of healthy foods and hydration
* Treatments of the sense of smell, aromatherapy, guided meditation, mindfulness, and the five senses approach to wellbeing

Perfect for pre-registration adult nursing students in their first and second years of the programme, Wellbeing Strategies for Nurses will also benefit nursing associates, health care assistants, assistant practitioners, and professionals returning to the field after a period of absence.
