Ultimately, planning meals leads to spending less money and wasting less food. But, in addition, planning healthy meals for long nurse shift hours leads to a healthier lifestyle, weight loss (if needed), more energy and better sleep when away from work.  While nurses are well-versed in the importance of a healthy diet, a fast-paced and hectic working environment can lead to living on caffeine and vending/cafeteria choices, or not eating much at all. Learn about easy meal planning tricks, along with useful information for both you and your patients, that can help simplify the chore of ensuring nourishing meals during long shifts.
