A Gold Bond to Restore Joy to Nursing: A Collaborative Exchange of Ideas to Address Burnout

In November 2016, 33 people gathered at The Johnson Foundation’s Wingspread Center with one goal: To explore, discuss, and refine ideas and solutions for stemming the tide of burnout among the nation’s 3.6 million registered nurses. This report is the result of that retreat. It includes 35 compelling ideas organized into four sections aimed at combating nurse burnout and restoring joy to the profession. Each section includes a statement of the challenge addressed, the highlights of the retreat conversations, and proposed solutions for nurses, organizational leaders and public policy makers.
