About the Webinar Course

This webinar course has been previously recorded.  

Nurses perform heroic acts every day, yet when called “heroes” they often downplay such compliments because they are just “doing their jobs.”  However, as with all heroes, there are villains who try to take away their powers.  Superman had Lex Luther and poor Perseus had to fight Medusa! Like ancient Greek and modern day super heroes, nurses have their villains too: ignorance, judgments, and bullying are a few of the villains that sap nurses of their heroic powers.  The good news is like all heroes, there are behaviors that STRENGTHEN nurses’ heroic powers and enable them to succeed: knowledge, compassion, a positive attitude, and moral courage can transform all nurses into true heroes.  This webinar course is designed to provide inspiration and practical strategies to help nurses become more heroic in their practice and to believe that what they do makes a difference, providing a healthy dose of inspiration for nurses who are struggling with morale and burnout.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this webinar course, the learner will be able to:
  • List 3 villainous behaviors that negatively impact the nursing profession.
  • List 3 characteristics that improve nurse’ ability to be viewed as healthcare heroes.
