Innovations for the Modern Nurse Leader: Team Mental Wellness

Wellness and health tools to activate nurse leadership and their teams

We all know that burnout has been a major issue in the nursing community for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this trend, stretching many healthcare workers to their breaking point. Unfortunately, many of these individuals don’t feel supported at the facility or systemic level. In a recent study from Trusted Health, 95% of nurses said that their mental wellness either wasn’t a priority or wasn’t supported.

We want to change this, which is why we have created an in-depth guide for nursing leaders to help them support their teams with proven tools to help them build resilience, improve their mental wellness, and ensure the best possible outcomes for their patients.

"As a nurse executive you need to use your nursing skills to look for signs in your team that they’ve had too much or that they’re not doing OK. Asking ‘how can I help’ may not be enough, but what might be better is asking ‘how can I help you with what is most important to you right now.’ The tools here help me start that conversation and make an impact.”
