Balancing School and Life

Balancing school and life – my quality of life self-care plan

Balancing School and Life – My Quality of Life Self-Care Plan. The purpose of developing this Plan is to set a framework and a plan to maintain wellness and to stay motivated and engaged throughout your Program. Doing this will help you achieve success during your coursework and as a professional nurse.

The goal of the Project is to help you become self-aware and reflective as a means of identifying personal self-care strategies that will increase your energy and help you manage your stress. The Project will give you a chance to learn how this is accomplished as you will be doing similar work with clients during the Program and as a professional nurse to assist them in the same way.

Using an online search tool such as, locate and select a free quality of life assessment tool. Assess your quality of life using the tool you selected. You can find your own tool, but I prefer everyone use the Quality of Life Self Care Wheel attached below.
