New Tool Helps Nurses Evaluate Their Own Health and Safety

The American Nurses Association’s new HealthyNurse™ Health Risk Appraisal enables nurses to evaluate their health and improve their wellness. Nurses can compare their health, safety, and wellness to the overall U.S. population and other nurses within demographic categories, including nursing specialty, by completing the appraisal. This HIPAA-compliant online survey also allows nurses to assess workplace risks such as patient-lifting injuries and workplace violence. The appraisal is a component of ANA’s HealthyNurse™ program, which encourages nurses to focus on self-care so they can be at their healthiest – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually – to provide the highest quality of care and serve as role models, advocates, and educators for their patients.
