Course Description

Managing Nurses Burnout and Stress is an evidence-based program, designed to provide nurses with skills and strategies to build a sense of well-being during and after the pandemic, ways to reduce stress, positively influence the hospital setting, and methods to thrive at work and build resilience. This is a program of building confidence, learning to find the calm in the middle of stress, and importantly, learning how everyone has a part in leading through informal roles as well as formal ones. Nurses can mentor, support, and build coalitions that are strong, flexible, fully present, compassionate, and mindful.

This program is mindfulness-embedded, allowing for nurses to learn about and practice mindfulness, known for numerous health benefits, in addition to reducing stress and cultivating compassion.
