CE Class: Endangerment of Nurses and Patients: Exploring and Explaining the Burnout and Workplace Violence Epidemics

This CE class for Maine nurses will investigate the dual epidemics of workplace violence and burnout and what they mean for nurses today, especially in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic that has exposed the long-standing failures of the health care industry to protect the health and safety of nurses and their patients. Using national and state level data and peer-reviewed literature and drawing on participants’ direct experiences, we will examine the relationship between health care industry restructuring of nurses’ work and risk factors for workplace violence and nurse burnout. Understanding this relationship reveals powerful structural solutions to workplace violence, stress, and burnout for nurses.
