Coping and Thriving in Nursing
An Essential Guide to Practice



July 2018 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

A unique guide to coping and thriving in the NHS today. The book is wholly practice-focused, speaking to current standards of care for patients, and current working conditions for staff in the NHS. Written by academics specialising in mental health, nursing and well-being, each chapter provides guidance and support to pre and post-registration nurses to manage and persevere as a nurse today. This essential first edition includes:

  • Case studies
  • Reflective practice 
  • Mindfulness exercises
 
'The stress of it all' – environment and people
 
Embracing change – a continuing process
 
Nursing: A profession with too many masters?
 
Reconnecting with your nursing values
 
Mindfulness and nursing
 
Thinking, learning and working under fire
 
Self-compassion
 
Collaborative working
 
Mental parkour – freeing the mind
 
How your past influences your present: the unconscious at work
 
Introduction: Talking to nurses
 
Conclusion: Going green, a toolkit to support sustainable practice

Thought-provoking, inspiring and a triumph for complementing the much-needed coping mechanisms in nursing/healthcare today. The overriding strength is the comprehensive coverage of the tools needed to survive in nursing environments, excellent case studies and structure of the chapters.

We are seeing more nursing students that are need of resilience, adaptability and ways to cope in the healthcare field/university. A compelling chapter on ‘Nursing and Mindfulness’ shows how the mindfulness technique can benefit nursing students and enhance their understanding of the GRACE model: Gather attention, Recall Intention, Attune to self/other, Consider what will serve, then Engage and end
