This is such a hard thing to deal with in nursing. One of my first jobs was in an oncology unit and the nurses got to know the patients really well because their admission times were so extended. Our hospital often brought in a coping team for us to speak to about patient loss and ways to leave work at work (struggle). I can say that it helps to talk to others about the loss and practice some form of cathartic activity (exercise, yoga, meditation...)

Ive found this to be challenging. As students and even nurses we are rarely taught how to cope with stressful patient care. This can be really overwhelming and traumatic. You def need an outlet of  some sort to disconnect.
