“When you feel like quitting, remember why you started.” – Anonymous

We’re living in a time when everyone is facing difficulties, and nursing students are no exception. You’re following your dreams to become nurses while facing a global pandemic that is changing the way you will approach your future jobs.

Many learning hospitals are now COVID-centered environments. And distance learning brings its own set of challenges, including lack of peer-to-peer support.

This 10-day challenge is designed for student nurses to:
• Provide resources to guide you through this unparalleled time
• Help you stay focused on your goals
• Remind you to take care of you.

You cannot pour from an empty cup. Your well-being matters during nursing school and beyond. We are in this together! 

In the meantime, share your stories in the comments below. Tell us how you are feeling about a returning semester. What are some of your pain points? What are you feeling good about?

Starts January 25. Sign up today! Join us by clicking "Yes," under "Ready to Join?" and invite a #healthynurse you know to join with you. Are you ready? Get started here.

I am really happy I completed this challenge. I found that I wasn't able to stay as connected because I am not a huge part of social media, but the exercises and tips we were given really helped guide me through this challenge.

Day 10: The challenge was very enlightening and resources. It helped me identify things I can do to stay relaxed, motivated and not get stressed. This Sunday I did hang out with some friends for the Superbowl but studied in the morning. It was a nice balance.
 
Day 10: I'm really happy that I completed this challenge.  There were some great pointers on how to navigate my last semester of nursing school, and take care of myself in the process.  While nursing school makes your life crazy, this challenged showed me that its okay to take 10 minutes to myself and reflect on the day, and feel whatever it is I'm feeling.  Thank you and good luck everyone!

Day 10: I am so glad that I did this challenge! I have learned that my peers are going through a lot of what I am going through and was reminded that I always need to take care of myself before I can take care of anyone else! I will continue to give myself breaks when needed, stay focused, and keep my eyes on the prize (graduation)!!

Day 10: I can't believe this challenge is already over! I plan to continue writing about my blessings and share my thoughts for the day in a journal for the rest of the year to remind myself of my accomplishments and advice throughout the year!

Day 9: My nursing school is fortunate enough to still continue clinicals at the hospital. However, our clinicals days were reduced to half so I did not get the chance to go as often as I wanted to. During the summer of 2020 I was glad to have experienced a nurse externship at the hospital that I do clinicals at and that has offered me a wealth of opportunities!

Day 10: tonight is my first 12 hour clinical, and I’m really excited to start working in the NICU! I will definitely be utilizing all of the tips and tricks I have learned over the past two weeks to help my mental health this semester and just stay on top of things.

Day 10: My schedule is starting to get busy especially with the 12 hour clinicals we will be doing this semester. I plan on keeping using all the tips I learned through this challenge and take some time off each day for self care.

Day 10: This has been a busy week. I will take some tips that this challenge has provided to be successful towards the rest of the semester. I hope everyone has enjoyed this challenge and let us not forget about selfcare because it is very important to do especially after a 12 hour shift.

Day 9: There were many changes after March 2020. We did not get hands-on experience our second half of the semester. I am lucky this semester that there are hospitals that are allowing nursing students to get hands-on experience. We do have some limits in which floors students can go to but I still am happy to be able to interact with patients.
