Stress and self care

Stress and Self-Care Pender, Murdaugh, and Parsons (2015) explain what is known about stress, including stressors, individuals’ responses to stressors, and approaches to managing external and internal stressors (Chapter 8). They also discuss the concept of self-care, stating that in their roles as caregivers, nurses can teach their patients to care for themselves (Chapter 11). The concepts of stress and self-care apply equally to the well-being of nurses and nursing students. Recognizing that nursing is often aimed at protecting patients from harm, and acknowledging that there is little attention paid to nurses’ or nursing students’ own personal psychological or emotional health (Walker & Mann, 2016), what can nursing students learn from this? How can nursing students develop self care skills for themselves as caregivers?
