We support nurses,
doctors and students
by teaching resilience
in health care
Resilient Nurses The Compassionate Care Initiative has sponsored a new Public Radio documentary series – Resilient Nurses, now available online– which chronicles what ails the nation’s RNs and what might heal their broken hearts. We hope the program will inspire nurses, nursing professors, nursing students and others in healthcare to begin their own resilient practices.
