In the know: New-nurse survival skills: Stress management

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, June 21, 2010

Stress is the number one health problem in America, and job stress is the major culprit. Nursing can be a stressful profession, especially depending on where you work and how you handle stress in your daily life.

People become stressed and burned out because they think that they have little control over their environment and their future. Do not fall into this trap. Focus on what you can control and you will realize that there are many things you can do to improve your environment.

When you learn how to manage your stress, it allows you to experience life from a more positive perspective. In fact, studies have shown that when we view stress as a positive rather than a negative experience, it leads us to happier and more fulfilled lives.
