In this article, Rhonda Collins, DNP, RN, FAAN is quoted from her 2021 report: “If nurses take 5 minutes every hour to go collect themselves and they come out of that space and the work environment is still completely chaotic, newfound serenity can't be sustained.”

These are immediately helpful, but as Vocera CNO Rhonda Collins writes in her 2021 report: "If nurses take 5 minutes every hour to go collect themselves and they come out of that space and the work environment is still completely chaotic, newfound serenity can't be sustained."
