Trusted and The Ohio State University have come together to help address the issue of burnout and depression through a partnership that provides access to wellness support and evidence-based strategies from nursing faculty and advanced practice nursing (APN) students from The Ohio State University College of Nursing. Here are some of the ways that you can take advantage of this first-of-its-kind resource:
If you're currently working with Trusted, you have access to an emotional support line staffed by seasoned nurse practitioner faculty, including mental health experts, and supervised students. Those faculty and students will review stressors with callers and offer coping strategies and stress-reduction techniques. If you'd like to call the support line, you can reach out to your Nurse Advocate or dial the number directly at (415) 466-1466 ext. 8.
Trusted nurses may opt to participate in a wellness support partnership program supported by the College of Nursing for a period of four or eight weeks. This will include cognitive-behavioral skills building, motivational interviewing and mindfulness techniques aimed at finding sustainable solutions to enhance the nurses’ health and well-being, both during the pandemic and for life.Learn More
