Honoring the Importance of Self-Care


Capella is proud to have provided education to over 14,000 nurses, and we support nurses in every step of their self-care journeys, including offering flexible degrees that can help nurses better themselves and their patients. Bachelors, masters, and doctoral level degrees are available with Capella’s groundbreaking FlexPath learning format.

Nurses give so much of themselves and regularly chose to put the needs of others first. We know that the practice of self-care is critical for our mental and physical well-being. How can we make that critical move beyond talking about the importance of self-care towards true practice? I encourage all nurses to begin with self reflection. Consider the areas of your life that may be the most challenging and then develop your very own self-care plan.
