Webinar: Nurse Wellbeing and Resilience Requires More Than New Tools: 7 Key Steps to Hardwiring a Culture of Resilience

October 1st at 12:30pmET


The resilience and well-being of nurses is at the top of the executive agenda: from the CEO Coalition announced in spring of 2021, to data from national surveys of C-suite strategic priorities, it’s clear that industry executives are committed to investing in the safety and well-being of the nursing workforce. And for good reason: decades of research have proven that burnt out nurses deliver poor patient care, and are 12% more likely to leave.


Exhausted, overly stressed, and burnt-out nurses cannot deliver best-in-class care, period. 

Based on our conversations with hundreds of nurse executives, as well as our experience working with dozens of health systems, we believe there are seven key steps to ensure your resilience and well-being investments deliver a measurable return for both your nurses and your bottom line- steps that most health systems are missing.


Join us on October 1st, when our team will delve deep into the necessary steps that best practice health systems are deploying as they seek to strengthen nurse well-being and nurse’s ability to manage extreme stress.  Participants will learn:


  • Recent trends in nursing turnover and burnout, and implications for health system workforce strategy

  • The key steps health systems are missing as they seek to enhance the well being and resilience of their nursing staff

  • A ”Resilience Roadmap” that toplines the seven steps best practice health systems are taking to ensure a measurable and sustainable approach to nurse well being and stress management

View short videos of thought leaders sharing on a range of topics that are top of mind for the healthcare industry. 

Nurse burnout has been a top of mind concern for health systems for some time; COVID is bringing new urgency to the importance of hardwiring nurse resiliency.  Unfortunately, health systems often miss the crucial first step in building a culture that can support resilience.  Learn how top performing health systems are re-thinking their approach to enabling the resilient nurse.

Organizational Development (OD) plays a vital role in health system success; in fact, organizations that invest in OD during times of economic crisis have historically weathered the downturns more successfully.  Unfortunately, health system OD teams struggle to reach a constituency that truly could benefit from leadership development: frontline nurses.  Learn the structural barriers OD has historically faced in reaching frontline nurses, and how best practice organizations are fixing this gap.

The Necessary Nurse Leadership Competency Hospitals Haven't Yet Deployed for Nurse Wellbeing

Over the last year, nursing leaders, from the CNO to unit-level managers, have been overwhelmed ensuring the physical safety of their teams, maintaining adequate staffing levels, and supporting mass vaccinations. Now, as health systems ramp up efforts to reinvigorate the frontline, it is vital for health systems to ensure nurse leaders are equipped with tools and resources to easily spot and mitigate burnout among their team members. Listen to this 30 minute webinar where we will highlight how organizations can rapidly arm nursing leaders with key concepts to more effectively identify and intervene at signs of burnout, all while fostering a culture of resilience at your health system.

A Next Generation Model for Battling Nurse Burnout

With COVID infections spiking nationwide, nursing leaders are struggling to protect the physical and emotional well-being of their frontline nurses. Health systems have responded by investing in largely self-directed tools designed to battle burnout and improve resilience: things like yoga, meditation, gift cards, mindfulness, and so on. While these tools are necessary, and send an important signal to your staff, most health systems will never truly get ahead of burnout since they are missing a simple, yet critical first step on their nurse burnout defense strategy.
The good news: there is a solution that overcomes these weaknesses and sets health systems on a sustainable path to preventing burnout, not just treating it. Join LFC Dec 10th for a 30min complimentary webinar on "A Next Generation Model for Battling Nurse Burnout". Recording

In this two part webinar, learn how COVID is actually the catalyst for re-thinking how we engage and develop this hidden pool of talent, how you can distill key frontline nursing leadership skills into early career nurses, and how this ultimately helps defend against nurse turnover. Part 1 Recording here.
