Stress Management For Nurses

Stress Management Tips for Nurses

All workplaces can become breeding grounds for stress – that’s just a truth in the world we live in. Many workplaces have introduced their own measures to reduce their staff’s stress levels. Here at the LearnPRN office we bring our dogs to the office. Nothing calms you down after a morning of deadlines quite like a dog at your feet. However, we think there might be an infection control issue or two in bringing dogs to work if you’re a nurse! Therefore, we wanted to look at some effective tips for nurses to reduce their stress in the workplace.
