Abstract (Summary)

There have been numerous studies done showing the results of stress and burnout in the nursing profession across many areas of healthcare, especially on the front lines. The purpose of this project was to help nurses to understand available resources and help them find better ways to manage stress in the workplace. A curriculum-based intervention was developed to provide education in a classroom setting; 11 student nurses with various nursing backgrounds were involved in this educational process. The nurses agreed that often nursing itself can contribute to increased stress. These nurses did not feel safe and feared reprisal when desiring to initiate change for the better. The consensus among the students was that good communication and sound data should support and guide changes that have to be made in nursing concerning stress management. Vigilance is key; keeping stress in check is very important.
