This is a discussion on the various topics covered by ANA's Year of the Healthy Nurse .  We will explore nurse health, safety, and wellness issues and resources which include the Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation Grand Challenge's five domains.
Your safety matters. This domain covers a wide range of topics - from staying alert at the wheel to safe patient handling and mobility.
Rest breaks and healthy sleep are not only restorative - but are key to your health and to providing safe patient care. This domain addresses strategies and guidelins for restorative sleep, workplace breaks and napping, and managing shift work.
Your life is full and your work is often stressful. This domain focuses on the elements that improve the quality of your life: including resiliency and preventing burnout, financial health, restoring joy, and achieving a positive work/life balance.
Nurses are often on their feet all day but fall short of recommended national guidelines for physical exercise. This domain includes strategies for overcoming barriers for guidelines and meeting exercise guidelines.
It isn't easy to find time for healthy eating. One average, nurses consume less fruits, veggies, and whole grains than other Americans. This domain covers recommended guidelines for dietary health, managing diet at work, and overcoming barriers to nutrition.
