Class Information:

According to a 2016 study, registered nurses suffer from depression at twice the rate of other professionals; a 2018 survey found that approximately half of U.S. nurses experience suboptimal physical and mental health. Caring for acutely ill infectious patients, like those with COVID-19—without sufficient resources or while juggling childcare, remote learning, or ever-evolving government restrictions—is likely to take an additional toll on nurses and healthcare workers.

The Resilient Nurse:

What are the characteristics of a resilient nurse? A recent study attempted to answer that question by surveying nurses high in resilience and contrasting them with nurses with post-traumatic stress disorder. The study found differences in four key areas:

  • Worldview
  • Social network
  • Cognitive flexibility
  • Self-care/balance

Highly resilient nurses reported that they were able to cope with work stress through their spirituality, supportive social networks, optimism, and resilient role models.

“The highly resilient nurses had so many more positive coping skills to draw from,” says Meredith Mealer, RN, PhD.

 Resilience: Resilience is the ability to adjust to, recover, or grow from it.
