ONLINE TRAINING & SUPPORT

Nurses Keeping On

Nurses Keeping On is a monthly community of support and resilience for hospital and public health nurses in the community (charge nurse and up), providing the opportunity for nursing professionals to connect with other nurses outside of their workplace and to reflect, refuel and renew. Think of it as a type of spiritual/attitudinal “spa” where you’ll have the opportunity to talk about things like what keeps you going in your profession, how to know if you’re burning out or just bumming out, and how other nurses deal with the emotional challenges of the work.

  • Registration is required by emailing info@cistressconsultants.com with name, email address, position and hospital
