Resilient Nurses The Compassionate Care Initiative has sponsored a new Public Radio documentary series – Resilient Nurses, now available online– which chronicles what ails the nation’s RNs and what might heal their broken hearts. We hope the program will inspire nurses, nursing professors, nursing students and others in healthcare to begin their own resilient practices.

Ambassador Spotlight


Meet Jaqueline Arechiga, our Compassionate Care Student Ambassador this month. Jaqueline is a first year in the School of Nursing and her primary goal as an ambassador is to make others aware of the programs that are offered and let them know that taking time away from school and work is not hurtful, but can actually help.
