What type Counseling Available for Nurses

Nurses General Nursing


What type of couseling available for nurses. Who does a nurse turn to at work when they need help. I thought I remember someone in the past saying there is such a person. I am not talking about what normally is available for nurses but something just for nurses.

My first thought was your agency EAP (employee assistance program). They are there whenever an employee has issues - personal or private - and are usually a wealth of resources for further assistance if they are not able to help.

Check your benefits. Most employers nowadays offer an employee assistance program as was stated above.

Good luck to you.

I'm not aware of something just for nurses though. I imagine there is a need.

If I had problems, I would not see anyone where I work...employee assistant or not. Keep your business farrrrrrrrrrrrrr away from where you work. Trust no one with that part of your life. :rolleyes:

Contact your public health department for assistance in finding a counselor/therapist to talk to. That's a much safer choice...IMO. :)
