I will soon be a new nurse on an ICU floor and know that I will have to face death. How do I cope with this?

I’m sorry this is so late but hope it may come in a timely manner for others. While death is definitely jarring, it helps me to see it from a more spiritual viewpoint of it being the next phase beyond life. Of course, as nurses along with all healthcare workers, we are going to do all that we can to help our patients. But once it’s out of our hands, we must come to a sort of acceptance. We cannot carry the burden of all the souls on ours shoulders but know that we fought as hard as could and then comforted them as best as we could in their last moments.

Therapy helps (with everything, really). Tried it for the first time a few years ago and had been going relatively regularly. How has it been going?
