At a time when health care is going through major change, nurses - known for being highly capable in a crisis - are being forced to take on more responsibilities. In this increasingly stressful environment, nurses need new ways to make sure they are taking care of themselves so they don´t succumb to the physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion of caring for everyone else. Nursing from Within: A Fresh Alternative to Putting Out Fires and Self-Care Workarounds offers the innovative solutions today´s nurses need. Although it outlines the problems nurses face, this book is not about trying to change the working environment. Rather, it´s about altering inner perspectives.
