2021 CNO Report Perspective [US]


Protect the Nurse, Protect the Practice

Nurse Resilience Isn't the Issue

Many nurse leaders I meet with are putting together “resilience kits” for nurses. A gift of items to help nurses take a moment for self-care is absolutely a thoughtful gesture. Yet it is not going to solve the real issue that’s causing burnout and the exodus of nurses from the profession.
