Nurses have been identified as a key connecting point to systems, patients, and other clinicians working together to deliver better patient care and outcomes. Nurses represent the key “people factor” in controlling care-at-home quality.
Work-life balance is something nurses are constantly trying to achieve, and many nurses are falling short of that goal.
According to the findings in the American Nurses Association’s 2013-2016 Health Appraisal:
- 82% of nurses experienced significant workplace stress.
- 57% said they often went to work early, stayed late, or worked through break time to finish their work.
- 33% said they were assigned a higher workload than they felt comfortable with.
