In this workshop, nurses will learn about mindfulness as a way to cultivate presence as an inner resource to meet the demands and challenges of nursing in healthcare today. Mindfulness is an evidenced based approach shown to decrease stress and improve resilience and well-being.

Practical tools will be provided to develop resiliency in order to navigate stressors in health care today that lead to compassion fatigue, burnout and moral injury.

Upon completion of this workshop nurses will be able to:
