Resiliency as a Student Nurse
Reflecting on my experience of going through nursing school while in a pandemic, I learned that practicing self-care is essential amidst all the changes going on every day and that reaching out for help is never a sign of weakness. I have found utilization of available resources such as TimelyMD and UHS Mental Health Services to be extremely helpful during times when stress can feel insurmountable. Talking to countless mental health providers equipped me with new perspectives that I have found very useful to stay afloat when school/life becomes overwhelming. I believe that one of the most valuable lessons is to reach out for help when needed in order to keep moving forward no matter our challenges.
