    Dragonfly Meadows welcomes you to
    rest and re-charge in this one-day professional development workshop for RNs and LPNs. Many nurses feel that something is "wrong" but they don't know what it is.... we invite you to spend the day and let our horses help you explore the challenges of being a professional caregiver in a safe and inspiring environment.
    You will walk away:
    * Understanding how compassion fatigue, burnout, vicarious trauma, and moral injury impact your work relationships and your home life.
    * With a complete self-care inventory, and knowing your barriers to self-care.
    *Skills to balance work and home as we look at mindfulness, boundaries, gratitude, and being cared for ourselves.
    We will discuss the unique challenges of being a Nurse in the health care system and discover ways in which we can better care for ourselves, our co-workers, and our family.
    You are not alone in your struggles for work-life balance or dealing with a difficult work environment.
    Seats are limited to 6.
    Early bird registration is accepted until August 31, 2022. The early bird fee is $175.00. The regular price is $225.00
    FYI: As per the NSNU collective agreement RNs are permitted TWO PAID professional development days per year. A certificate of Completion will be provided at the end of the day. This may be submitted to your manager, with the appropriate forms
