6 Ways Nurses Can Beat Compassion Fatigue
1.Talk It Out
Remember to talk to the right people. Patients and clients don’t need to hear that you are doubting your career choices, and co-workers don’t need to know that you can’t stand your DON. However, sharing generalized frustrations with your peers can be very helpful. Maybe your co-workers are experiencing similar feelings, or they may be able to give you advice if they have dealt with the same issues previously.
Bottling up your feelings only creates more pressure, and a nurse under pressure is likely to explode.
