Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Burnout in nursing has become a crisis in the United States. Burnout compromises job performance, negatively impacts patient safety and satisfaction, decreases job enjoyment and increases nurse turnover. Building emotional resilience in nurses has a positive impact on nurse satisfaction and performance, as well as patient outcomes. Easy-to-use strategies and tools to combat burnout and build resilience are shared. Attendees have a chance to experience the strategies for themselves in session.


  • Identify the relationship between burnout and job dissatisfaction, shortened nursing careers and worse patient outcomes.
  • Verbalize one's own personal response to stress as well as the underlying factors that need to be addressed to prevent and recover from burnout.
  • Apply two strategies to relieve stress and build resilience.
