Caring and Creating: Self-care for Nurses and their Kids
We all know that self-care is important, but for nurses, taking time to reflect and renew your spirit is essential. Take a moment to care for yourself and connect with your child over a collaborative collage as you respond to the question, “Mom/Dad, what do you do at work?” Children of all ages can enjoy collage, and adults of any artistic ability will find collage to be accessible and engaging. Materials will be included, but feel free to bring along any images or family photos you would like to include in your collage. Prompts and questions to help guide your discussion will be available. Light refreshments will be provided. This event is free of charge, sponsored by Hektoen Nurses and the Humanities. Space is limited. RSVP to to reserve your spot.
