The emergency environment is unique, unlike any other hospital workplace.  As ‘the hospital’s front door’ is always open, without caps on patient numbers, and without selection for age or disease. There is more overcrowding, and more patients are boarding. Like the rest of the hospital, the burden of complex disease and mental health conditions are growing. Within the emergency department, there are many high demand functions contributing to workplace stress, such as triage, resuscitation care, interventions, and meeting patient and family expectations.

This course will explore unique stressors to the emergency department and how a new nurse in this unpredictable environment can utilize tools to measure personal levels of stress and burn-out. Early recognition of high stress levels can help the nurse develop strategies for coping and ultimately better job satisfaction.
