There can be no doubt that nursing is a challenging role at times and as nurses we have all had days that where we feel overwhelmed with work or emotion. We spend so much time support and caring for our patients but who cares and supports nurses, especially during these Covid times? 

The Kings Fund, Leadership for Engagement and Improvement in the NHS report talks about how engagement matters and state that “If staff do not feel engaged they can spiral down into burnout, which can leave them cynical, exhausted and depressed. But where staff are engaged studies across a range of sectors show performance rises.” The Kings Fund continue by stating there is “close relationship between staff experience and patient experience, arguing that ‘happy staff make happy patients'.” Therefore it is apparent that nurses who feel supported and have a positive experience give better care, however the challenge still remains .. how do we care and support nurses? And what are the challenges to doing this in these Covid times? 

This #WeNurses discussion aims to explore the following: 

  • How can we support a positive staff experience?
