Exceptional health care begins with healthy and happy employees. The Care For The Caregiver committee is an inter-disciplinary group of hospital staff committed to helping you maintain a healthy balance between work and personal life. We are here to share resources to help maintain that balance and allow you to save just a little of your care and compassion for yourself.
Pastoral Care is a ministry of compassion dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of patients, families, and staff.
The Vanderbilt Nurse Wellness website has resources to help you get connected, reduce stress, and find balance in mind, body, and soul. This website is for everyone—not just nurses.
