The pace and intensity of work are on the rise. Nurses face pressure from managing increasingly complex populations while addressing expanding regulatory burdens amid fiscal and human resource constraints. Novice nurses report feeling overwhelmed and are unprepared to cope with the complex psychological, social, and spiritual care needs of their patients. Nurse leaders are challenged to provide rapid yet well-thought-out decisions in morally complex work environments.

Regardless of role, new expectations and challenging working environments can place health care professionals at high risk of burnout and stress-related sickness. This is cause for concern as there is a direct and adverse relationship between negative stress and productivity and engagement in the workplace.

How can you develop resilience and stay motivated in the face of constantly increasing demands and infuse meaning and joy into your practice? Tune into this recording of the special live event as experts share the latest neuroscience, behavioral and organizational research and strategies.
