The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has changed our lives in a variety of unprecedented and unpredictable ways. 

As a nursing student, the threat of potential illness, the need for social distancing, and learning to cope in new ways while still tending to the competing demands of friends and family, nursing school and work responsibilities can take a significant toll on one’s overall health and well-being. 

To support you during this time, ATI and Dr. Cynthia Clark recently went live in a two-part webinar series - Conversations on Stress, Coping and Wellness in Uncertain Times.

Each session contains new information for students. During these unique sessions, Dr. Clark discussed:

  • Signs and symptoms of stress
  • Setting priorities to mitigate stress in uncertain times
  • Coping during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Wellness activities
  • Resources to implement during uncertain times

These 30-minute, live webinars will took place Friday, March 27, at 1 PM CST and Friday, April 3, at 1 PM CST. You can view the recordings here, part one and part two.
