Group Pages

This group will provide great resources and an open forum to discuss the topics that are presented through the TNA Talks.

Members who attended the Talks will be able to share with those of you were unable to participate at the live venues and together we can share the message with nurses from across the state.

If you have any issues or need assistance please send an email to:  tna@texasnurses.org.

wrote on the Other : Nurse Talks Empowerment Series wall: A focus for our discussion on self care is the fact that most people do not even recognize when they are burned out or suffering from compassion fatigue or whatever we choose to call it. It is like being impaired and you are no judge of when you are impaired. We discussed strategies to help us recognize the signs in our selves.

wrote on the Other : Nurse Talks Empowerment Series wall: At Covenant we are doing studies with Texas Tech University Department of Design. Lately we have been studying the effects of connecting to nature and how that can moderate a nurse's stress level. A previous doctoral student studied the outside windows and view of nature in the break room. We are currently studying sky ceilings (donated by Sky Factory) in the Emergency Department. In a previous study we focused on patient stress level and it is nice that we can add to the body of knowledge on nurse stress by connecting with nature. (By the way, we just revealed a very massive TV screen in the waiting room of our very busy Emergency Department that nearly covers the entire wall. It is a simulation of a fish tank with schools of colorful fish, giant turtle, stingray, coral, and some advertising for Covenant Health and public service information. I believe it will be helpful for the staff as well as patients.

Joyce mentioned nursing theory, specifically Jean Watson's Theory of Human Caring. For people who are interested in learning more, this article goes in to additional depth on this topic. https://www.nurse.com/blog/2018/06/11/caring-science-starts-with-self-care/
