You're reviewing: Nurse Burnout: Overcoming Stress in Nursing

ISBN-13: 9781938835889
Pub. Date: 2016

Nursing as a profession attracts those who value compassion, want to make a difference in other people’s lives, and want to do greater good in the world. While the profession provides endless options of practice, settings, and flexibility, it also provides more than its fair share of stress through long shifts, mental and physical exhaustion, conflict and bullying, patient challenges, regulatory changes, and lack of control. When stress and fatigue take over a nurse’s ability to prioritize self-care, quality and patient safety may be compromised.

Nurse Burnout: Overcoming Stress in Nursing explores the enormous risks involved in the stress-fatigue-burnout connection and defines health concerns and practice considerations for how to move the profession forward. Author Suzanne Waddill-Goad provides practical solutions and strategies for fresh thinking, including ways to prevent burnout in the first place, harness and manage overwhelming stress, and set new priorities to care for yourself.


Doody 4 Star Review

“As a nurse, I recognize much of what this book discusses. It provides catharsis for practicing nurses through the discussion of the shared problem of burnout, and I hope that the tools it provides may help address these problems. The chapter on promoting work-life balance and self-care will be a great help to nurses who tend to give everything to their patients and their work while sacrificing their own well-being.”

-Kathleen D. Ambrose, MSN (DNP candidate)(St. John Hospital System/Ascension Health)
