Stress On The Job: A Closer Look at Root Causes, Impacts, and Solutions

Workplace stress is a serious concern for nurses, with impactful consequences for individual nurses’ health as well as patient care, burnout, and turnover. Usually stress is talked about as an individual problem. Solutions proffered by employers generally focus on self-care and stress relief, “I have to make the situation work”, and individual therapy/mental health treatment, “There must be something wrong with me”.

Registered nurses are responsible for and accountable to practicing safely, competently, ethically, and compassionately in accordance with their scope of practice. This class will look at how workplace stress can be a barrier to that responsibility. We will look closely at the fundamental sources of physical, mental, and moral stress in nursing — including understaffing and under-resourcing, amongst others. In looking at the bigger picture of workplace stress, we will identify effective solutions to nurses’ workplace stress.
