The Science of Nurses Caring for Nurses

Some thirty years ago, when Elaine Walsh worked as a nurse in inpatient psychiatry, one of her very ill patients haunted her. She’d awaken at night startled and troubled. Even today, she still wonders what exactly was going on with this very complex patient. At the time, there wasn’t anywhere at work for her to turn to for support. It never even crossed her mind that a formalized support system could help her process the situation, contribute to her own well-being, and improve her ability to care for other patients.

2019 Clinical Preceptors of the Year
