18th Annual Research Day Webinar June 4

 In Nurses Weekly

Even before the pandemic, the level of emotional exhaustion in healthcare workers was at an all-time-high with one out of three people meeting the criteria for burnout. Nurses already experienced 2.8 times more stress than the average American and twice the rate of depression of other professionals. Now early research from COVID-19 shows increased levels of stress, anxiety and depression.

According to the American Nurses Association, “The well-being of nurses is fundamental to the health of our nation.” With the CDC adding that how providers cope with their emotions affects not only their well-being, but the care they give to others.

ONL NJ is honored to host the 18th Annual Research Day, featuring two dynamic nurse leaders and researchers, Elizabeth M. Norman PhD, RN and Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN, HWNC-BC, from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on June 4.

Dr. Norman will discuss the early research done in the mid 1980s, using interviews with veteran military nurses who served in the Vietnam war and will examine the similarities of that era and the current era of COVID-19, where nurses experience the best and worst of humanity in their daily work. Elizabeth will draw distinctions on what has been learned thus far from both eras about the essence of nursing.

Dr. Dossey will explore Florence Nightingale’s (1820-1910) legacy of caring, health, and healing both at the local and global level. Barbara will examine and share how healing rituals help to bring more presence, compassion, balance and harmony into daily life.

Learning Outcome: At the conclusion of this program, participants will recognize the importance of nursing research as it relates to the healing process during stressful times. The learner will be able list two strategies for healing rituals that will support compassion, balance and harmony during challenging times. Selected strategies will be transferrable to themselves, their practice and/or organization.
