The Healthy Weight Initiative for Nurses (WIN.) project has developed NURSING YOU, a free interactive resource designed by nurses, for nurses, to help you better understand your decisions around work-related unhealthy food behaviours and to support you to find healthier alternatives.
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is vital to long-term quality of life, maintaining productivity, and ensuring you are at your best to care for patients. Obesity among nurses is a sensitive but important issue, which is why the WIN. project developed NURSING YOU.
NURSING YOU was based on the perspectives of overweight nursing professionals and the challenges that affected their ability to make healthy choices, and intends to help nursing professionals identify the reasons and triggers for unhealthy food decisions with an aim to encourage better choices.
This resource was developed through co-operation between the Royal College of Nurses (RCN), C3 Collaborating for Health, the RCN Foundation, London South Bank University, and the Burdett Trust.
