Self-Care Workshop for Undergraduate Nursing Students at Conestoga College

Stressed? Tired? Overwhelmed?

McMaster University’s Collaborative School of Nursing Program believes that before nurses can engage in a professional caring relationship with a client, they must learn to value and care for themselves. Jointly sponsored by the McMaster University Collaborative School of Nursing Program at the Conestoga site and the Associated Medical Services (AMS) Phoenix Project “A Call to Caring,” please join workshop facilitator Viola Fodor, M.Ed., and AMS Phoenix Fellow Janet Lovegrove, RN MSc, for a full-day workshop titled, Self-Care for Undergraduate Nursing Students.

Self-Care for Undergraduate Nursing Students ( Level 1, 2, 3 or 4)

Students who attend the workshop will learn about why self-care is important in all aspects of life, both academically and personally.Viola Fodor, M.Ed., will demonstrate how self-care can be integrated into one’s life in practical and sustaining ways. She will guide workshop participants through an awareness exercise designed to help them assess their current level of self-care in body, mind, and spirit. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the importance of honest self-examination, quieting the mind, and nurturing the inner self.
