What You’ll Learn

Deconstructing the NYT Article and My Thoughts on the “Nursing Shortage” Show Notes

  • Help with compassion fatigue
    • Finding a counselor – Psychology Today’s “Find a Therapist Tool”
    • Myself a professional counselor created a free online course for nurses experiencingmental and emotional stress with downloads, tips, journal prompting, and more. If you’re not sure if you need o actually see a counselor or not, we talk about that in the course – Coping Through COVID
    • Check out your hospital’s “EAP” resources. EAP means employee assistance program, which often offers free anonymous counseling services to employees. This could be on your hospital’s intranet page, or just ask your manager. Because this is often an included benefit in your compensation package, you or your manager aren’t going to be charged for each session or anything like that. Hospitals contract with counseling agencies to provide this service, so there isn’t communication between your counselor and your manager, other than confirmation of your employment status.
  • Help with knowing your worth and negotiation
