Interprofessional Institute for Self-Care

At the Kent State University College of Nursing Interprofessional Institute for Self-care (IISC), they recognize that the nurses’ capacities for engagement and presence are linked to the foundational values and skills of their own self-care. The IISC is dedicated to the investigation, translation and dissemination of the scholarship and science of self-care. These efforts will have a far reaching and sustaining impact for the nurse, the profession, patients and families, the organizations in which they work and the communities in which they live. As one of the initial collaborators with Kent State, Urban Zen continues to work with the students and faculty to promote self-care personally and professionally.
