ICU Nurses Are More Prone to PTSD and Burnout: Here’s How You Can Build Resilience
Frieda Paton, M.Cur, RN
Media Originally for:
Nurses and/or Other Critical Care Medical Professionals
Focused research over more than a decade by Meredith Mealer, Ph.D., RN and others has shown that Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is as prevalent among nurses working in ICU as in war veterans – but also that greater resilience protects against burnout (BOS) and PTSD. Resilience is being able to adapt effectively to major stress, and it can be learned. This means that you can start developing your resilience now to strengthen your psychological make-up for your future career in nursing.
