NCPD Contact Hour(s): 1.0

Working in pediatric healthcare is stressful on the best of days, but in a post-pandemic time of a behavioral health crisis, a nursing shortage, and increased complexity of care, it’s all too easy to feel disconnected and dissatisfied with our jobs. In this humorous and interactive presentation, participants will learn about the differences between happiness and joy at work and strategies to help nurses remember that their work is not about medications administered or timecards processed, but rather the meaning we feel from the gift of service. 

Target Audience: Nurse educators, hospital leaders, clinical staff, and bedside nursing will all benefit from attending this webinar. As the nation navigates a pediatric behavioral health crisis, effective tools and information should be shared amongst health care professionals to ensure optimal care for this patient population is provided. Learn how a hospital created the Behavioral Response Team, the roles within the department, crisis management and the new model of proactive care provided in non-psychiatric settings. 

Outcome: 90% of participants will incorporate a strategy into their workdays to reengage with their work as a nurse based on the knowledge learned during the presentation. 

Continuing Education: Society of Pediatric Nurses is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
