I received a comment on one of the articles I wrote from a new nurse telling me she is dealing with death in her workplace and is having a hard time. She wanted to know how I – and other pediatric nurses – keep from burning out. As I began to ponder this question, I decided to take this question to a social media site and ask my fellow pediatric nurses how they keep on keeping on (credit is given to each nurse's comments, quoted with permission).
