Nursing Faculty Resilience

Burnout has been called a “public health crisis” and known to begin in academia, resulting in multiple negative outcomes for individuals, organizations, patients, and communities. As faculty, we must respond quickly and appropriately to radically transform the SYSTEMS ISSUES leading to this crisis. This means changing the way we view roles, responsibilities, and relationships.

I recently conducted a large, national study exploring the concepts of RESILIENCE, MORAL COURAGE, AND PURPOSE in nursing faculty. Almost 700 respondents clearly indicated a need for positive disruption within academia, to improve faculty recruitment & retention AND student engagement & success. We will be sharing detailed results of this study in an upcoming publication. For now, please see some preliminary results re: Moral Distress shared via poster presentation.
