During the pandemic, healthcare workers are fighting a lethal virus with acute shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the devastation of the loss of life, not only that of the patients they serve but their fellow healthcare workers as well, and the rapidly changing work environment. These unprecedented circumstances have amplified the sources of emotional distress and worker burnout.
Rasheda’s resilience education is an essential strategy for an organization to flourish in today’s dynamic world to overcome the perils this pandemic has caused. Resilience contributes to nurses’ readiness to lead, provide excellent care for their patients, and practice self-care. She focuses on the opportunities offered by resilience-enhancing interventions to better prepare nurses for professional practice. Through her coaching, she is focused on building resilience in the nursing workforce to overcome burnout and stress.
Nurse burnout is an all-too-common occurrence defined by a decrease in nurses’ energy, which appears as physical, emotional, and behavioral distress, a loss of enthusiasm, and emotions of overwhelm, resulting in decreased job efficacy, high patient safety risk, and turnover. With the workload in the nursing profession is at an all-time high, it is vital to understand the working situation and introduce interventions to mitigate the adverse effects of such an increased workload. There is a need to uncover support strategies for developing resilience among nurses to strengthen their professional practice.
She believes that it’s incredible how much strength exists in human nature. She is dedicated to coaching passionate and devoted leaders committed to advancing through decisive leadership, passion, and purpose. She offers client-centered coaching to help them confidently put vision into action that develops resilient leadership skills that drive potent results.
