We know that healthcare professionals are going through a rough time. And, it’s easy to feel stressed, worn down, and burnt out, especially with the pandemic still raging in much of the country.
In an effort to extend our support as much as possible during this trying time, Vivian is partnering up with an incredible nonprofit, Operation Happy Nurse, to provide mental health and wellness practices to our healthcare professionals.
Operation Happy Nurses’ mission is to help all nurses struggling with stress, anxiety and/or depression by offering a community focused on improving overall mental health and physical wellbeing.
We are thrilled to join them in supporting the nurse community at large.
