    Nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic are caring for, listening to and supporting their patients, their families and friends daily. "Nurses Together: Connecting through Conversations" provides you the opportunity to take an hour for yourself, allowing you to share thoughts, seek support and virtually connect with your nursing peers. This free resource is brought to you by ENA in partnership with the American Nurses Foundation, ANA, AACN, and APNA. 

    Below you can select "Join a Conversation" to register for an upcoming session, or you can select "Volunteer to Facilitate a Conversation" to help your fellow nurses by leading or co-leading an upcoming session.

    Who should join the conversations?

    Nurses looking to connect in a virtual, judgement-free space to support and talk with one another during these difficult times.

    How does it work?

    • These conversations will be hosted by a facilitator to help guide the conversations to ensure a safe, judgement-free zone is maintained
    • There are dedicated dates and times to select from so you can choose a time that works best for you
    • You will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to participate in your session
    • You are welcome to attend as many "Nurses Together" peer discussions as you would like during the length of the program

    Who Takes Care

    of You? 
    The Importance of Self-Care

    Thursday November 5th
    4:30 - 5:30 pm

    Do you spend your days caring for others and put yourself last?

    Do you ever think about who would take care of you?

    Do you know how to take a break?

    Finding the right self care that works for you can be a challenge!

    Join us for an interactive reflection on how to take care of yourself in a way that works for you. This is a chance to think about what you need for your well-being. As healthcare workers we are always putting others first but we MUST take the time to check in with ourselves.
