Emotional labor is a concept that's new to me, and potentially new to many nurses, as well. In a nutshell, emotional labor is the emotional regulation that we as nurses and healthcare providers have to practice in order to be present with our patients. Suppressing our emotions can take a toll in the short term and the long term. As a nurse, how do you care for yourself emotionally? Please watch this short video and leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
