Who would have ever thought that the first six months of 2020, “The Year of the Nurse,” would be like this? Let's take a confident look back on a tumultuous and crazy year in our profession. Never before have nurses been so needed and risen to the occasion! While a pandemic is never funny, we know that nurses are experts at using humor to cope in any situation. This promises to be a humorous, inspiring, thankful, and reflective webinar presentation from someone on the front lines!

Upon completion of this webinar course, the learner will be able to:
  • Discuss why humor is important in our professional lives.
  • Share at least two methods to bring humor into the workplace.
