HUR3516 Week 4 Assignment: Self Care Assignment Guideline

DUE DATE: Saturday of Week 4

Summary: Your assignment is to write an APA formatted reflection paper based on taking one hour a week to do something for yourself, reflecting on the experience, and answering some final questions. You will also present findings from a scholarly, nursing journal article.

“ANA defines a healthy nurse as one who actively focuses on creating and maintaining a balance and synergy of physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, personal and professional wellbeing. A healthy nurse lives life to the fullest capacity, across the wellness/illness continuum, as they become stronger role models, advocates, and educators, personally, for their families, their communities and work environments, and ultimately for their patients.” (American Nurses Association [ANA], 2017)
