Nurse Leaders’ Experiences During COVID


Tuesday, June 14, 1pm Eastern
(Duration: 1 hour)


Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, at least one out of every ten nurses worldwide was suffering from high burnout, contributing to high turnover rates. The stress of struggling to maintain nurse staffing and reduce turnover consequently may contribute to burnout and turnover among nurse leaders. The pandemic has compounded these stressors for nurse leaders, e.g., managing staff shortages, reassigning nurses to cover COVID-19 units, limited bed capacity, high patient acuities, shortage of personal protective equipment - all while supporting their staff nurses. This presentation will review research that explores COVID-related stressors, work environment, burnout, turnover intention, and resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.


  1. Identify the presence of COVID-related stressors, burnout, turnover intention, and resilience among nurse leaders in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis in Birmingham hospitals.
  2. Review strategies that nurse leaders have used during this pandemic to maintain resiliency.
  3. Describe how work environment impacts burnout, turnover intention, and resilience among nurse leaders.


  • Nurse leaders who are experiencing the difficulties and/or challenges in their workplace during COVID-19.
  • This webinar is also appropriate for providers and/or providers-in-training from diverse healthcare professions including physicians, nurses, dentists, physician assistants, pharmacists, and program administrators.
