Description

Problem: Nurse burnout is a critical issue worldwide. It can have negative health implications physically and mentally for registered nurses.

Purpose: The purpose of this project is to determine the effect of stress management and positive coping mechanisms education on nurses’ stress at work and at home.

Methods: This is a descriptive quantitative study where data will be collected via surveys regarding the participant’s stress levels and how they best manage it. The surveys will be available to Registered Nurses at the nursing station of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. A pre-survey will be given, followed by education using verbal and demonstrative techniques as well as providing an informative pamphlet, ultimately followed by a post survey; that will evaluate the effectiveness of the education intervention.

Pertinent Findings: The expected benefits of the education intervention will be an increase in nurses’ knowledge on stress relief techniques and the ability to manage stress effectively. Therefore, allowing them to relieve workplace stress and avoid nursing burnout.

Conclusion: Hospitals should evaluate the well-being of their healthcare providers on a regular basis as well as provide resources to allow their staff to be able to manage their stress in a healthy, effective manner.
