October also features a host of fun activities! Join us for a Twitter Chat on October 18, 6pm ET, with the American Medical Association on strengthening resilience in health care professionals.  Consider downloading Stop Breathe & Think, a mobile app to help you find resilience within your everyday practice. 

 ANA Navigate Nursing Webinar: Moral Resilience - Can be purchased for 1 CE credit.

National Infection Control week is also in October.  It is important that nurses understand the necessity for Infection Control as well as the benefits of Immunizations.  The flu season is here, so be sure to get your flu shot!  ANA California is our featured constituent/state nurses association for their tireless work and collaboration on Infection Prevention and Control.  Please check out October for more resources on impactful ways to improve your wellness and everyday practice!
