Winter Escape 2023

It is now more important than ever to decompress and feel the support of those around you. This page is dedicated to giving nurses a break from the rigors of the job during this time of heightened stress, workload and anxiety.

Please enjoy these videos, quotes and activities. If you have suggestions for items that could be added to this page to improve user experience, please email them to [at] (nsnu[dot]office[at]nsnu[dot]ca).

In 2021 NSNU launched two contests asking members to share pictures and commentary of their favourite pastimes, and ways to escape the more social and emotional side effects of the pandemic. As the pandemic and health care crisis continue to put excess pressure on our members, we continue to strive to find the light in hard times.
