We asked nurses using the CareRev Marketplace about their New Year’s resolutions for 2024. What did we learn?

As we usher in 2024, nurses are setting their sights on resolutions that revolve around achieving a more harmonious work-life balance. The demands of the healthcare profession can be both physically and emotionally taxing, making it crucial for nurses to prioritize their well-being. This year, we explore six resolutions tailored to help nurses reclaim time for themselves, foster personal growth, and find equilibrium between their professional and personal lives.

1. Work less

In the pursuit of work-life balance, many nurses are vowing to work less in 2024. Recognizing the importance of downtime, nurses are making a conscious effort to reduce overtime hours and prioritize self-care. Striking a balance between professional commitments and personal time is essential for mental and physical well-being.

How CareRev can help: CareRev provides a platform for nurses to choose when and where they work. With the flexibility to pick up shifts that suit their schedules, nurses can regain control over their work hours, making it easier to fulfill this resolution.

2. Travel more

Nurses, known for their adventurous spirits, are resolving to travel more in the coming year. Whether it's a weekend getaway or an extended vacation, exploring new destinations can be a rejuvenating experience. Traveling allows nurses to unwind, gain new perspectives, and create lasting memories.

How CareRev can help: CareRev's flexible scheduling empowers nurses to plan for family growth without sacrificing their careers. The ability to control when and where they work provides the necessary freedom to navigate the demands of family planning.
