March's Champions Challenge!
Nursing students represent the next generation nurse. As they learn and develop their practice, it is important to ensure that they are able to enter into the workforce as healthy as possible. By being mentally well, new nurses will be be able to support their healthcare teams while providing safe quality care.
Whether you are a student nurse, newly graduated/licensed RN, or a senior nurse, this challenge will allow you to practice a strategy that is known to be mental health promoting: CBT.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), is a widely used psychotherapeutic intervention that focuses on changing unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes we all experience from time to time. Mental health professionals use CBT strategies to treat a variety of conditions, but they can also be invaluable for us to utilize in our day-to-day lives. CBT can help you improve your ability to emotionally regulate, develop positive coping behaviours, and target issues that are negatively impacting your life.
Whether you get anxious++ before exams, find it difficult to enter a new clinical rotation, or struggle talking to the charge nurse, take this month to practice strategies from An Introductory Self-Help Course in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
