In an emotionally charged work environment such as nursing, laughter, tears and other emotions are going to be at an all time high, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. These physical reactions of the body in consequence of emotional feelings lead to a renewed state of mind and provide release of tension and emotional healing. Check out the infographic below to see what happens biologically during these two reactions, the after-effects, and how to positively incorporate them within a health care setting.
Laughter, Tears and Sacred Heart’s Human Journey
Laughter and tears are a part of being human. Sacred Heart University’s RN-BSN program embraces being human and knows it provides for powerful healing and care. The RN-Bachelor of Science in Nursing program and faculty prepare nurses to naturally incorporate and welcome these human emotions with patients and colleagues, contributing to a healthy, healing work environment. The BSN curriculum features Sacred Heart University’s signature core curriculum called The Human Journey, a nationally-recognized model of values based education by the AAC&U. The core curriculum consists of four courses that incorporate meaningful topics of discussion, including what it means to be human, what it means to live a life of meaning and purpose, what it means to understand and appreciate the natural world and what it means to forge a more just society for the common good. Due to the nature of the field of nursing and dealing with patients and life situations, these thought-provoking questions are a fundamental piece of providing great care.
Sacred Heart’s RN-BSN program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education1 (CCNE) and consists of an asynchronous, flexible online format so that you can enhance your career without interrupting it. SHU also offers an accelerated and condensed RN-BSN-MSN bridge program where you can take two graduate classes at the undergraduate level, saving tuition and time all the while obtaining your BSN degree along the way to your master’s.
