Why Stress First Aid for Nurses?
Nurses work in a pressurized context and the ramifications of this stress can negatively impact wellbeing.
Continued staffing and resource shortages have compounded stress levels placing nurses in situations where doing the “right” thing is not possible leading to moral distress and compassion fatigue.
Prolonged exposure to increased stress levels may result in both physical and psychological manifestations.
Left unmanaged these increased stress levels may progress to stress injury and stress related illnesses.
