The mental health of nurses has a significant impact on the care they provide to patients. When nurses experience high levels of depression, anxiety, or stress, it can affect their ability to make sound clinical decisions, communicate effectively with patients and colleagues, and provide compassionate care (1). Research has shown that nurses experiencing mental health issues are more likely to report making errors, experiencing burnout, and having low job satisfaction (2). High levels of stress can lead to increased absenteeism and turn over, which can negatively impact patient care continuity (3).
