Stress to Satisfaction: A Study on Well-Being of Nurses
Nurses play multiple roles depending on the unique needs of patients. They act as a teacher at times explaining to the patient and his/her family members about the medical condition of the patient and advising them on food intake, exercises, etc. In emergencies, when doctor is yet to arrive, she evaluates the patient condition, recognizes the problem, and implements interventions that are necessary to promote the health of a patient. Nurses also counsel patients and improve the psychological well-being (PWB) of patients by giving right kind of care at right time. But what if PWB of nurses comes down? What factors influence PWB of nurses? Is it possible for hospital management to enhance PWB of nurses? What will be the advantage to hospitals if the management improves PWB of nurses?
