- Nearly every student in the course was able to think of a time when they had personally been impacted by or had observed incivility in the workplace. In what ways does this impact your view of the nursing profession? If those outside of healthcare were aware, how might it impact their view?
- As you move towards your role as an NP, what will you do to support healthful work environments for yourself and your colleagues?
- Think about your personal use of social media. Are there changes you would like to make in how you use social media?
- What self-care practices do you engage in to promote personal holistic health?
