Stress affects all of us, but for those who work in healthcare, the risks of stress can beĀ hazardous. In a job that is inherently stressful, it is important that medical providers have strategies to combat and cope with the physical, mental and emotional stresses of their occupation. We talk with a nurse practitioner about the techniques she and others can use to maintain a balanced work and personal life.
