The nursing workforce is ever evolving. Nurses of today are providing care on the frontlines of healthcare organizations with an increasingly complex patient care environment. Nurses across all levels are reporting increasing levels of stress and burnout. Further, large numbers of nurses have resigned from the workforce, and there is an expectation for an even greater shortage of nurses in years to come. Resilience is one potential measure to help nurses manage stress and cope in the work environment. In this webinar Dr. Mary Bemker will discuss what resilience is, and why it is important, measures to facilitate resilience, how to build resilience, how to facilitate teamwork, and strategies for self-care. In addition, the terms compassion fatigue, burnout, and moral distress will be defined and compared as it relates to nurses and stress. Join Dr. Bemker to gain valuable strategies on building leadership, organizational, and personal burnout resilience that can easily be transferred into everyday clinical and non-clinical settings. You will walk away from the webinar feeling replenished to help better prepare for and respond to traumatic events and experience. Additionally, you will earn 1 hour of nursing continuing professional development credit for attending this webinar on tools for resilience.
