Nurses may find the holidays to be the most stressful time of year. The hospitals are very busy at this time and it can seem that with everything going on at work and in preparation of the holiday, you have too much to do.
Try not to worry about the upcoming plans and tasks that you have left to complete. Instead, focus on the present. Enjoy the more spirited workplace during the holidays and try to raise the spirits of those who are going through tough times. As a nurse, you have the unique ability to be able to brighten someone’s day while attending to their comfort and medical needs. This can make you feel extra good about yourself and your job.
Also, think about all of the extra overtime pay you will receive! This can help to ease the financial burden of the expense of buying gifts and planning celebrations.
ATC Travelers wishes everyone a happy and healthy holiday season.
