Title : Full time faculty burnout caused by or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Nursing faculty are experiencing burnout which includes lack of job satisfaction, low morale, decreased social and peer support, exhaustion, and other psychological and physiological effects. Nursing faculty are at risk for stress and burnout that threaten to worsen the current nursing faculty shortage. The United States’ experience with the pandemic has placed the reality of our current nursing shortage into the spotlight. Nurse faculty have not received as much attention related to chronic stress and burnout or recognition of personal chronic stress potentially leading to burnout.

This presentation will explain faculty burnout and the consequences

What are some strategies to retain novice faculty

A study of 100 or more nursing faculty will be explored
