Illuminating Nightingale: History of Trauma & Resilience in Nursing
Time & Location
About The Event
The Academy of Forensic Nursing would like to thank the Alaska Nursing Association for extending this wonderful opportunity for all of our Members to attend this FREE Virtual Lecture from a Nightingale Scholar!
Have your cake and eat it too while celebrating the founder of modern nursing! Join the Alaska Nursing Association on Florence's 200th Birthday (and International Nurses Day) to celebrate!
Through the lens of Florence's life and legacy, Illuminating Nightingale will cover the history of post-trauma stress and resilience in nursing, nurses' exposure to daily trauma and stress in and out of the workplace, and the need for self-care, reflection, and healing.
THIS IS A FREE WEBINAR! This continuing education offering is in celebration of Nurses, Nursing, and Nightingale. Nightingale was a major influence on our current nursing practice. With a deep dive into the primary sources from Florence Nightingale, it was obvious, she suffered as many nurses do due to direct care of patients and populations in the community. The CE offering includes encouragement for our colleagues in nursing and health care to embrace self-care to promote healing and resilience.
