6 Ways Nurses Can Beat Compassion Fatigue


2. Recharge at a Retreat

The growing acceptance of burnout in the nursing industry has led to the development of numerous retreats and camps designed specifically for healthcare professionals. There are retreats for any and all nurses, as well as get-aways only open to those holding certain titles. Typically located in relaxing rural settings, retreats encourage nurses to recharge in the company of their peers. Many retreats feature fun activities such as rock-climbing, meditation, and horseback riding along with time to talk our your issues with professionals.

Retreats can last from one weekend to a number of weeks, so there is no need to stress about taking a bunch of time off. If there isn’t a retreat in your area, consider starting one of your own with your co-workers. Not only will this give you a chance to get outdoors and relax, you will also bond with one another and strengthen your connection to the people who make your place of employment so great.
