Announcing a FREE recorded webinar for all nurses in honor of National Nurses Month in May!

Promoting Nurse Resiliency During COVID-19 Through Implementation of a Nursing Toolkit

SELF-STUDY RECORDING available for CE credit through May 25th!  

Live webinar took place on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.  Recording includes presentation, questions and discussion that followed. Evaluation must be completed by May 25, 2021 to receive CE credit.

The WNA COVID-19 Wisconsin Nursing Organizational Affiliates* are pleased to present this panel of 3 DNP-FNP Students to share the process  and findings of their DNP quality improvement project investigating the negative effects of COVID on nurses and formulation of a prototype Nurse Resiliency Toolkit. More from our presenters:

“As three bedside nurses working the frontlines of COVID, we experienced the effects of lacking resiliency firsthand. There was uncertainty, fear, and burnout. We each realized that there was a need for information on resiliency maintenance/promotion to better navigate the uncertain times. Information was changing every day on how to wear PPE, how to practice self-care, etc., but there was no platform where it could all be found. Our goal was to create a toolkit that acted as a resource to support nurses on the frontline of COVID-19.”

Let’s support each other on the road to resilience and recovery of our passion for nursing!
