Healthy Nurses/Healthy Patients: Key Strategies for Self-Care and Promoting Heart Health
With over 3 million practicing Registered Nurses (including Advanced Practice Registered Nurses) and 690,000 Licensed Practical Nurses in the U.S., nurses represent the largest sector of the health professions. While nurses’ education prepares them to promote the highest level of health and wellness in their patients and families, too often they fail to adequately care for themselves. As a result of not engaging in healthy lifestyle behaviors, nurses have higher rates of diabetes, hypertension, obesity and depression than physicians. Not being in optimal health contributes to high rates of burnout, early retirement, and a plethora of chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease, depression, obesity, and musculoskeletal conditions. Research demonstrates that patient outcomes are improved if health care providers are satisfied in their jobs and engage in healthy behaviors. By role modeling healthy behaviors and lifestyles, nurses positively impact patient outcomes.
This webinar, a collaboration between The Ohio State University and the National Interprofessional Education and Practice Collaborative to Advance Million Hearts, will discuss the current state of health in the nursing population. Healthy lifestyle behavioral modifications and innovative approaches for promoting health and wellness in nurses will be highlighted by using the national cardiovascular platform of the Million Hearts® initiative. Key strategies for integrating wellness into nursing curricula and places of work will be highlighted.
: This webinar is open to everyone, including nursing students, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, nursing administrators, health care providers, and anyone interested in attaining a higher level of health and wellness.
