Abstract

Despite the well-documented need for nurse-focused efforts on health and wellness, too few healthcare organizations have made a meaningful impact on this issue. Nurse health should be integrated into the strategic and operational workings of the organization. Environments of health and wellness require attention, accountability, action, and accessibility. Although individual choice is the starting point, true success will be achieved when nurse health is a nonnegotiable outcome consistent with quality, safety, finance, and patient experience.
