Nurses: Burning out or burning bright
from By Keith Carlson
From June 12:
The words "burnout" and "nursing" are all too often mentioned in the same breath. If you talk to enough nurses, you'll hear plenty of stories of burnout that could make your hair stand on end. Sadly, many nurses feel that burnout is unavoidable, while others take a proactive stance against this condition that impacts our profession so deeply. As dedicated, hard-working caregivers, we must live with the potential for burnout, but the potential for healthy living is a parallel reality that is also within our grasp.
