Although we have all considered the potential impact of emerging infectious disease, the world’s current battle with Covid-19 is shifting the hypothetical into a reality, impacting each global citizen. At the root are a variety of infectious pathogens, some representing a resultant disease and each featuring varying abilities to pass between people. Additionally, pathogens that lead to worldwide disease (pandemic), it is critical to also respect those that cause limited endemic or epidemic disease. The world has suffered from deadly infectious diseases for many years, with some pathogens resulting in far worse consequences than others. Covid-19 will pass with yet unknown societal impact. Nurses will always be on the front line – playing key roles in fighting the disease and showing their patients how to best adapt to life in a non-sterile world. There are many low-cost, high impact practices nurses can teach that will reduce the frequency and burden of emerging infectious disease.

Imagine a world where everyone got along and went out of their way to support each other – where resources were abundant, and patients and their families were always happy and satisfied. Wouldn’t it be a joy to work in a world like that? The reality is that nurses work in unpredictable worlds where they don’t always support each other, have the necessary resources, and struggle to meet the increasing needs of patients. Ultimately, these struggles lead to stress and over time, stress leads to fatigue, burnout, and exhaustion.  Nurses sacrifice their time and energy for patients and have nothing left for their families. The good news is that despite the increasing demands, nurses CAN thrive. This webinar course provides nurses with simple proven strategies to flip the switch from exhausted to extraordinary!  Equipping yourself to deal with the daily challenges of your job can have an exponential impact on the work environment and patient care.
