5 Ways To Beat The Burnout [Infographic]


When nursing is your career, a burnout can most definitely happen. But by following these tips and truly learning what a nursing burnout is, you can alleviate the stress and get back to loving your job.

What is Burnout?

The high stress of nursing can eventually lead to physical, mental and emotional exhaustion, otherwise known as burnout. And it can happen to even the best of nurses. Those who selflessly take care of others sometimes forget they must also take care of themselves!

  1. Eat Well and Sleep Well
    Energize with healthy foods and a good night’s sleep. Your patients will thank you.
  2. Address your Stress
    Nurses face difficult health situations, and sometimes even death, on a daily basis. Talk to someone you can confide in. Process your emotions, and then leave the workday at work.
  3. Schedule Me Time
    Always putting others first can take a toll. Learn how to say no and balance commitments. It is important to find time in the day to focus on your own wellbeing. Prioritize your mental health and find time to relax.
  4. Give Yourself a Pat on the Back
    Sometimes just making it through a long shift is an accomplishment in itself. Reward yourself with a hobby or favorite snack.
  5. Protect Your Passion
    Remember why you wanted to be a nurse in the first place. Protect that feeling, and try to incorporate it in daily situation.
