Safety
Your safety matters. This domain covers a wide range of topics - from staying alert at the wheel to safe patient handling and mobility.

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.

Physical Activity
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.
