Part 3 – Next Steps
Balancing School and Life – My Quality of Life Self-Care Plan. The purpose of developing this Plan is to set a framework and a plan to maintain wellness and to stay motivated and engaged throughout your Program. Doing this will help you achieve success during your coursework and as a professional nurse.
The goal of the Project is to help you become self-aware and reflective as a means of identifying personal self-care strategies that will increase your energy and help you manage your stress. The Project will give you a chance to learn how this is accomplished as you will be doing similar work with clients during the Program and as a professional nurse to assist them in the same way.
Continue to use the quality of life self-assessment tool you selected to reassess and identify strategies you can use throughout your nursing program to maintain a desired quality of life.
In a 2–3-page paper (not including the title page or reference page), include the following information:
You’ll need to reassess yourself in all of the areas (submit completed form) and then write a 2-3 page paper about what you are going to do for the rest of your nursing program to stay balanced. APA title page is required. Your paper should discuss your current scores and how they have changed since your first self-assessment. You will also need to discuss what your plans (intentions or commitments) are to stay balanced through the program. You need to list 1 plan and 1 action for each dimension. Lastly, you will need to identify any new strategies that you are implementing and why they will work better than what you are doing now.
