After announcing our new stress survey Are You Way Too Stressed? on May 13, I was amazed to see that more than 1,900 of you have already taken time in your busy schedules to take the survey. From the data collected, we will be able to learn about the causes and effects of stress, and I can’t wait to share the results with you and the nursing community. I’ve seen an incredible response from RNs of all ages, backgrounds and specialties which suggests stress has no favorites.
For those of you who have yet to take the survey, the good news is it’s not too late! The survey is open and accepting responses until 5/27/14. Take the survey now.
It’s no secret that nursing is one of the most stressful professions there is. By taking a few minutes to answer these 12 questions, you are contributing to an industry-wide survey that will reveal the truth about stress and its effects on registered nurses.
Despite the challenges, many RNs enjoy a rewarding career in healthcare facilities. Other RNs took their nursing knowledge and put it to use elsewhere. Wherever your nursing career takes you, I believe that we all need to band together and stand up to stress!
P.S. I’ll post the stress survey results right here on June 30.
