As if the end of the year wasn’t stressful enough, nurses have one extra headache to deal with: holiday shifts. Sure, the extra padding in your paycheck from working a holiday is nice. But, for many, the appeal of extra cash wears off soon as nurses miss the events of the season.
Even if working holiday shifts makes you feel like you got a lump of coal in your stocking, you can still make the best of a bad situation. And it doesn’t take extreme efforts to help spread some holiday cheer.
No matter your role in nursing, you can help boost your, and your unit’s, mood.
