Arianna Huffington on Thriving in Your Nursing Career

self care for the ones who care

Arianna Huffington is the founder and CEO of Thrive Global,  founder of the Huffington Post, and the author of fifteen books, including Thrive and The Sleep Revolution – both of which  became international bestsellers. She has been named to Time magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people and the Forbes Most Powerful Women list. In August 2016, she  launched Thrive Global, a corporate and consumer well-being and productivity platform with the mission of changing the way we work and live. You can follow Thrive Global on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Throughout National Nurses Week, May 6-12, we recognize nurses for their commitment to putting their studies, profession and patients before themselves in providing an extraordinary level of care to their patients. During Nurses Week 2017, we had the honor of having Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post and founder and CEO of Thrive Global as our live webcast keynote speaker.

We were touched by the congruency of Arianna’s message with Chamberlain University’s educational philosophy – Chamberlain Care® and its simple equation: We believe that if we take extraordinary care of faculty and colleagues, they will take extraordinary care of our students, and our students will, in turn, take extraordinary care of the patients and families they serve.

The core of healthcare is care for others – healthcare professionals touch others’ lives in ways that few other professions do. While it is a rewarding and fulfilling career path, it is also demanding as healthcare becomes ever more complex and challenging. In such a demanding healthcare environment, it is important to remember that caring for one’s self is essential, and can have a positive impact on your care for patients and families.

A huge thanks to the thousands of students, faculty and alumni who joined us for the exciting kick-off to the week. Especially during Nurses Week –a time of recognition and celebration of the role of the nurse – it was an ideal setting to reflect on how care for self can extend outward to improve the interactions between our nurses and their patients.

You can still hear from Arianna about the importance of self-care for nurses and the ability to thrive in school and in practice and learn about:

  • How taking good care of ourselves leads to a more innovative, creative and productive workforce
  • How to achieve success through well-being, our ability to draw upon wisdom, wonder and our capacity for compassion and giving
