Ladies and gentlemen~
Did you know that “for nearly every indicator, the health of America’s nurses is worse than that of the average American. Nurses are more likely to be overweight, have higher levels of stress and get less than the recommended hours of sleep. Because health care delivery requires 24/7 support, the demands of shift work exacerbate the health of nurses. In addition, hazards such as workplace violence and musculoskeletal injuries are contributing factors to poorer health. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, registered nurses have the fourth highest rate of injuries and illnesses that result in days away from work when compared to all other occupations.” (ANA, 2018, Link (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.)
Please read through the executive summary from ANA’s health risk assessment.

Discussion: There are 2 parts to this week’s original posting: Everyone should answer #1 AND either #2, #3, #4, OR #5
1. Some people, once they recognize they need to change unhealthy behaviors do, and some do not. Review Rosenstock health belief model OR Albert Bandura’s theory of perceived self-efficacy and write a short summary of this model/theory, with an application to ONE healthy behavior (such as use of tobacco, alcohol, adequacy of rest and sleep, etc.).
2. Some theorize that often nurses don’t take care of themselves due to experienced distress and grief associated with their patients’ suffering that lead to burnout, moral distress and compassion fatigue. Do a literature search to explore this further.
3. Select a chronic or acute illness or health condition and do an online search. Examine websites generated by your search, assessing them for accuracy and safety. What items on the site do you consider safe and why? Why do you consider others not as safe? (be sure to look at who is funding the page~ it’s very small print!)
4. Review the Link to Healthy People 2020 initiative (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Select ONE of the 2020 topic and objectives to explore & write a summary on why it was chosen for a 2020 initiative, the objectives, what the interventions that are being implemented are and your perception of the effectiveness based on the nation’s response.
5. Create a self-care training and educational plan (based on validated methods) for medical learners (such as yourself!) supporting personal, professional, and team self-care. Keeping in mind Bandura’s theory of perceived self-efficacy.
