Health Workforce Innovations in Response to the COVID Pandemic
'Escape' for Nursing
Increased work pressures and stressors on nursing staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NSNU developed a COVID-19 webpage on nsnu.ca and created the Escape webpage to help members with fatigue and stress related to the pandemic. Recognizing that there is a higher degree of pressure on the job, and perhaps at home, the NSNU has developed a webpage to offer some escapism and relaxation.
The webpage allows members to step away from our current situation and engage, for a few minutes or even hours, in non work-related virtual activities. The NSNU Escape webpage has something for everyone. It is important to take a break, find a distraction, and relax, as best you can.
This page is dedicated to giving nurses, and others, a break from the rigors of the job during heightened stress, workload and anxiety. Please enjoy the videos, music, recipes, virtual tours, quotes and other activities. Some of the content automatically refreshes, while staff will seek out new content as it is available
