Work Life Balance: How Are We Taking Care of Our Older Nurses?

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, October 28th, 2014

During the past 35 years, the number of nurses 50 years and older has more than quadrupled, and the number of nurses ages 35 to 49 doubled. These older and middle-aged nurses representing almost three-quarters of the nursing work force have major struggles with work life balance.

Older NursesDuring their long careers, nursing professionals will constantly give themselves completely to their career and rarely taking the proper steps towards their own health and happiness. We must encourage nurses of all ages to care for themselves, but especially older nurses who have neglected themselves for many years, as the toll taken on their health can have devastating consequences. They deserve to be healthy in mind, body and spirit.
