On Friday, May 7, 2021, Anderson University Professional and Lifelong Learning and AnMed Health partnered in a FREE, virtual professional development workshop for the Upstate nursing community. This unique and fully online experience was designed to support nurses in developing and practicing coping skills necessary to face challenges to their work-life balance and professional practice during the Covid crisis.
More than 30 participants engaged in both live and recorded sessions led by AU mental health and wellness faculty in the best practice of processing grief in professional practice. Workshop participants learned from expert faculty, hospital administrators, and professional colleagues through a dialog defining grief, reactions, and stages of grief, and strategies developed during this high-stress period of health care and nursing.
Nursing faculty, health administrators, and practitioners unpacked the experiences of the last year from personal and professional perspectives and found affirmation and support in colleagues throughout their communities. End-of workshop surveys described the event as informative, encouraging, and cathartic. It was a success on every level.
Thanks to the AU faculty who donated their professional expertise, AnMed Health Administration for providing CEUs, and Nursing Professionals who may never receive the honor and appreciation they deserve for the outstanding care they provide to our community every day.
Participants of this workshop received a Certificate and 4.5 CEUs through AnMed Health, and the recorded workshop is available for viewing for 90 days with that same award, creating the opportunity for further participation.
