Nurse fatigue is a huge problem. 60% of all nurses report feelings of burnout. If there are 3.1 million of us in the United States, that means over 2 million of us are burned out!! In my book, From Exhausted to Extraordinary: Strategies to reveres nurse fatigue, I provide nurses simple proven strategies to reduce fatigue and burnout.
