Abstract

Research indicates that mindfulness-based interventions can positively change how individuals perceive stress and burnout. Part of the responsibility of mitigating stress and burnout among nurses should be placed upon the organization; thus, nursing professional development practitioners are in a unique position to engage nurses in mindfulness-based practices. Therefore, a quality improvement project aimed to decrease perceived stress and/or burnout among nurses on three pilot units was implemented utilizing evidence-based mindfulness interventions.
