Graystone, Rebecca, MS, MBA, RN, NE-BC
JONA: The Journal of Nursing Administration: May 2019 - Volume 49 - Issue 5 - p 231–233
Compassion fatigue and burnout are 2 of the most serious issues facing the nursing profession today. Both can lead to emotional exhaustion and job disillusionment. Both contribute to lowered productivity and quality of care. Healthcare providers around the world are on the lookout for ways to prevent and mitigate these critical issues. In this month's Magnet Perspectives column, we take a deep dive into the latest research on nurse burnout and compassion fatigue, examine contributing factors, and consider steps organizations can take to make sure their nurses are not running on empty. We also explore how the fundamentals of a Magnet® culture, especially an autonomous practice environment, strong nursing leadership, and meaningful recognition, can keep nurses engaged and build a resilient workforce
