Creatively Confronting Compassion Fatigue: Meet MSN Alumna Caroline Pauline Cárdenas

As an oncology nurse, Caroline Cárdenas has personal experience with compassion fatigue.

She wrote her master’s thesis on the subject, developed her own experiential programs, and now helps fellow nurses find joy through play workshops and seminars.
