Exploring And Explaining The Workplace Violence And Burnout Epidemics

This class will investigate the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout and what they mean for nurses today. Using national and state-level data and peer-reviewed literature, we will examine the relationship between the structure and management of the health care industry and risk factors for workplace violence and nurse burnout. Understanding this relationship reveals powerful structural solutions to workplace violence, stress, and burnout for nurses.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout among nurses.
  2. Explain the impact of workplace violence and nurse burnout on patient care.
  3. Discuss how direct care nurses can take steps to end the workplace violence and burnout epidemics.
