All levels of nurse leaders who teach others — aspiring nurse leaders, charge nurses, directors of nursing and CNOs.


Are you feeling burned out, worn out or stressed out? Nurses can be described in numerous ways — compassionate, dedicated, smart and meticulous caregivers. However, many don’t know that one of the most critical skills to staying motivated and adaptable to an ever-changing health care environment is located within them — Resilience! Attend this seminar to learn how to find it, how to grow it and how to share it with others.

The Resilience Academy empowers nurse leaders to learn to be resilient, given the demands of their patients’ needs and the complexity of health care, by equipping them with the skills, structure and support they need to thrive in the health care industry.

More than just a class, this program provides the tools necessary to create resilient cultures at the unit, department and organizational level. Participants will learn and experience a variety of resilience skills including engagement, compassion, connection and extreme self-care that they can apply immediately for themselves and their staff.

This highly interactive day includes skills building, ignite sessions, action plans, accountability and a follow-up 30-day resilience challenge with monthly coaching calls.

The time is now. The call is yours.


Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • assess their quality of life
  • differentiate burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and second victim in health care
  • define resilience and the critical role it plays, specifically in today’s nurse leader challenges
  • identify and experience seven resilience skills
  • create an individual resilience care plan
