A candid conversation about mental health
We’re wrapping up season three of the show with a very special episode in honor of Nurses Week 2021 and Mental Health Awareness Month. Joining Dr. Nurse Dan are two very special nurses who have been working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic: Tayler Oakes and Tina Vinsant.
Tayler, Tina and Dan had a very candid conversation about what the last year has been like for them, how their mental health and overall well-being has been impacted and what they wish their facilities and the healthcare system as a whole would do differently to support nurses.
We also had a chance to get Tina and Tayler’s reactions to Trusted Health’s second annual study on frontline nurse mental health and well-being, which looks at how the pandemic has impacted nurses, their career plans and their commitment to nursing
