Thanks to Julie Atkinson Boatwright and Nurses Unite for this important story:
“Moral distress” can play a major contributing role to burnout among emergency nurses, according to a new report commissioned by the Emergency Nurses Association and published online in the Journal of Emergency Nursing.
Any thought or stories of your own? I’ve quit more than one job due to circumstances that completely precluded ethical, professional, and/or effective nursing practice. Nurses stay to feel like heroes sometimes or to avoid abandoning anyone: in my view their actual impact is to help untenable situations persist and avoid change. What’s your view?
