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.
Long hours, physical and mental exhaustion, and heavy workloads are some of the many reasons nurses become burnt out. To help increase the well-being of nurses and quality of patient care, experienced consultant and educator Suzanne Waddill-Goad, DNP, MBA, RN, CEN, is sharing her solutions to coping with the stressors that often lead to burnout in her new book, Nurse Burnout: Overcoming Stress in Nursing, published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). Waddill-Goad provides explanations of the causes of stress and burnout while sharing practical preventative strategies and solutions that can be incorporated into all nursing practices.
Waddill-Goad has experienced the stressful working environment of a nurse firsthand — as well as, the many camouflaged issues that arise over time in a complex environment. The challenges include internal and external pressures and strains, work culture, stress, and fatigue. Her book is an invaluable resource that brings awareness to the many risks involved in various healthcare environments and opens discussion on how to move the nursing profession forward in a time of change. Waddill-Goad provides nurses with practical solutions and strategies for fresh thinking, ways to harness and manage overwhelming stress to prevent burnout, and methods for setting new priorities to help nurses care for themselves.
