2023 Joseph and Joan Pranis Kenney Endowed Conference for Excellence in Nursing Education

March 3, 2023

This one-day program will engage participants in an interactive discussion of resilience and how and why the social and emotional toll of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact caregivers, while concurrently discussing personal and professional resilience needs and stressors and their impact on engagement, professionalism, nursing education, and burnout. Participants will review their personal support systems and evaluate their personal care and professional needs. As caregivers and educators, we need to not only see ourselves with grace, but also offer that grace to those we serve. We will then shift focus from the individual to the larger community and consider the needs of students or patients within healthcare systems and how educators and nurses can successfully assist others in building their resiliency. Assessment tools for distress/overwork/burnout will support the need for individuality in resilience building. Curated resources, training activities, practical exercises, and examples of implementing resilience into nursing education will be discussed and provided

4. Practice initiating conversations requesting support or offering support and compare assumptions of need across different groups.
