Most nurses have an adequate knowledge base in order to live a healthy life. However, if nurses have a knowledge deficit they can research the topic or call upon an expert for help. Often, we have the information we need, but fail to act. For example, we know that the failure to eat a healthy diet results in weight gain and low energy levels. In the long term, a poor diet can lead to health problems and a shorter lifespan. However, we still pick up a fast food breakfast on the way to work. Or, we continue to work night shift even though our doctor recommends moving to day shift. Poor health habits extend beyond dietary choices for many nurses. For example, nurse entrepreneurs in their early start-up days may practice poor life-work habits such as working too many hours or neglecting their family life.
